#StandWithUkraine – Bei Dao about the Russian invasion of Ukraine

„Writers, poets, artists, we do not have the weapons of economic and financial sanctions to respond to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, but we have those of the memory of humanity which must make itself heard against the threat of a new fratricidal war in Europe and everywhere else. We call on Vladimir Putin to stop, before it is too late, one war too many, which will have no other result than to inflict suffering in the first place on the Ukrainian people and the Russian people, to sink further the human reason and the future of the world. We are all in peril!“
