We, the Gandhian Global Harmony Association (GGHA) members and supporters, an international peacemaking organization headquartered in Delhi, established o­n February 15, 2005 and bringing together more than 600 humanities scholars and peacemakers from more than 50 countries, including the President of India, Abdul Kalam, 5 Nobel Peace Prize laureates and leaders of many international peace organizations have signed and are sending to the UN the following Petition “In defense of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and millions of its believers”.

We, the undersigned believers of good will, Orthodox and Catholic Christians in the first place, PROTEST against the monstrous violent persecution of the state nationalist leadership of Ukraine against the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and millions of its believers. Orthodox churches in Ukraine, in accordance with the authorities spiritual Satanism and legal nihilism, which grossly violate the rights and freedoms of millions of Orthodox believers in the country, burn and destroy Orthodox churches with heavy machinery, persecute and kill Orthodox priests, forcibly close Orthodox monasteries, seize the premises of Orthodox churches and mock the Orthodox believers in the most disgusting way, humiliating their human dignity in every possible way. Blessed Augustine was truly right when he pointed out that earthly kingdoms like the modern Ukrainian regime are "kingdoms of Satan" that are perishing from it.

We SUPPORT the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in its constitutional right to life and millions of Orthodox believers in their right to freedom of Orthodox conscience and religion, serving to universal peace, truth and unity of all believers.

We are outraged by the illegal actions of the Ukrainian nationalist authorities, we DEMAND the restoration of legality and justice in relation to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and its congregation.

We INSIST o­n the immediate response of the UN and UNESCO in defense of the believers millions rights the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, if they remain international bodies of support for them and have not become bodies of assistance in trampling them.

We INVITE all people of good will publicly, through the GGHA networks, to SIGN our Petition since Easter to Easter, since April 9 to April 16, indicating your name, faith (if you want) and country. The list of signatories who have PUBLICLY signed the Petition, in order to rule out any suspicion, will be published o­n the GGHA website

in Russian: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=ru_c&key=1026

Publications of the GGHA Easter Protest Petition in London


Dear Rodney,

Thank you very much for your excellent and courageous publication of our Petition in Defense of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (UOC) below.

Within 4 hours of your posting, 7 Britons and Americans have sent signatures to the Petition: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=1126. This is more than all the Orthodox Russians from our, GGHA, network, covering more than 1500 emails in 2 days, as if they had died out. I will not now draw a theoretical conclusion from our sociological experiment-survey by this Petition, but its trend is actually o­n the face in the list of its signatories.

This Petition has deep peacemaking significance as the first step of dialogue; therefore, its signature from any country means support of global peace and civic solidarity. Silence in relation to it is a betrayal of the world, it is militarism, support for war and the breakdown of dialogue o­n the brink of a nuclear Armageddon, when it is urgently needed as the first tool to prevent it.

Best wishes for true peace in dialogue,


Dr. Leo Semashko
