Carefully observing the development of the conflict in Ukraine Reclaim
Ireland takes the following Position :
- From the depth of our hearts we condemn any form of attempt to solve issues with violence or military force and our thoughts and prayers are with the innocent civilian victims, regardless who caused the suffering.
- We emphasize that any difference between Ukraine and Russia should be solved with means of diplomacy rather than with means of Guns and Bombs.
- We are fully aware that the current conflict is a product of long lasting interference of other geopolitical stakeholders.
- We are astonished about the hypocrisy of current political leadership who express their grief for the victims in this conflict whilst we missed similar statements at geopolitical military operations in other countries such as Iraq, Syria or Libya.
Statement from Reclaim Ireland –
We call on the Irish Government and following Organizations to
maintain our nations stance as a neutral country amidst the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
1 : The Irish Government :
✅ We as the nation of the Republic of Ireland are not unsympathetic to the plights of war. As we witness the events of conflict unfold between Russia and the Ukraine, we hope and pray for the quick resolution to the differences in amicable and peaceful terms.
We emphasize that any difference between Ukraine and Russia should be solved with means of diplomacy rather than with means of guns and bombs. In this context we insist to sustain the traditional neutrality of the Republic Of Ireland
✅ Within Reclaim Ireland please note, that all individual party constituents opinions are their own and may or may not reflect the party mandates. Nevertheless each voice is respected and counted. Any individual opinion may however be discussed and if consented within the party it may will be adopted as opinion of the party
✅ As much as we sympathize with the civilian victims of this conflict, the consequences of their suffering should not be born by the people of Ireland. Whilst the people of Ireland are willing to help it should be kept in mind that it cannot do so in unlimited means . With that in mind, Ireland struggles with its own challenge of poverty of its local population and cannot be burdened with humanitarian cover for victims of geopolitical war games. These cost should be born by the stakeholders of the conflict.
Commitments by the government beyond the means of the State will cause unnecessary burdens for the Irish people who still suffer from decades of austerity and have to cope with the economic impact a mismanaged pandemic has caused.
2 : The United Nations General Assembly –
✅ To request the UN Security council to table a Motion calling for a Ceasefire Between the Russian Federation Forces and the Government of Ukraine Armed forces and for both to withdraw from these areas outlined above.
✅ to plan and create a new peace keeping force of UN Troops to be sent to the new Donbass Republics, to confirm their withdrawal and to enforce a cease fire in the area & support Humanitarian Efforts.
✅ Ensure that “NO Country work with or sponsor local militia or covert operations in the Ukraine including the disputed republics and Crimea”.
✅ From the perspective of a neutral country we are concerned, that NATO efforts rather increase the conflict potential than calming it. It is understood that the core of Russian military operation is triggered by the breach of NATO’s commitment from 1990 “not to expand an inch” beyond the German border in order to obtain Gorbatchovs agreement to the German reunification.
✅ Stop Sending Arms into the Country , as this is only fuelling the Conflict and causing additional suffering to the Ukrainian People
4. European Union
✅ Money of the European Taxpayer should not be used to keep the conflict going. It is not acceptable that our impoverished people are left to the wayside, while millions of tax payers money is spent on arms to be shipped to conflicts which are none of the concern of the EU taxpayer
✅ Any attempts of Ukraine to join the EU should honour the basic principles of the EU is manifested in the treaty of Lisbon
- A candidate country must be in peace with its neighbours!
- The applying country must have the rule of law and democratic structures. The current administration of Ukraine obtained power in 2014 by means of a Coup dÉtat, suppresses all oppositional media and has its political opposition leaders imprisoned (e.g. Poroshenko and Temushenko)
- The Status quo of an applicant country must have full sovereignty and internationally recognized independence from any prior federate or confederate commitments.
