The Fondazione Mediterraneo wanted to celebrate "International Women's Day" by dedicating it to Ukrainian women: innocent victims of a fratricidal war in the heart of Europe.
Throughout the day, the Peace Museum's 107 large videowalls projected images of Ukrainian women whose dignity and lives have been violated.
To NOT FORGET what increasingly appears to be a tragedy of immense proportions.
President Capasso thus addressed the women in attendance and those connected webinar:
"We want to dedicate this March 8, 2023 to the Ukrainian women who resist, who heal, who flee, who fight for life, who cry, who stand against Putin's war, who hope for Europe, who ask us to help them.
The images of Ukrainian women victims of the war flash before our eyes now unaccustomed to this spectacle in the heart of Europe: thousands dead, hundreds of thousands relocated or exiled, towns and villages in ruins, bridges and buildings destroyed by gunfire, monuments of culture or faith desecrated, violence and humiliation of all kinds, countless existences of simple people mutilated or torn apart forever. Human suffering cannot be summarized. Can one go beyond it?
This question is addressed at the same time to Russia that invaded Ukraine but also to those who have done so little to stop this war in the heart of Europe.
What can we say, in the face of such a tragedy, of a UN unsuited to the changes in our world with bureaucratic rules and vetoes that prevent real peacekeeping action; of a NATO that has remained a prisoner of archaic defense models; of a European Union that cares so little about the rest of Europe except for economic needs and following the law of markets and merchants; of a Russia trying to take back the place of the former Soviet Union by using force and violence, of all these games barely disguised by the great powers and their interests? Agreements constantly betrayed, pacts mocked and negotiators made fools of, international resolutions ignored, humanitarian convoys themselves become targets of deadly rage. Russia has provoked a war in the heart of Europe, against a "Brother Country"-Ukraine. A European war that is being waged according to archaic and despotic criteria contrary to any logic. A morally illegitimate war with no legal basis. A war above all fought by causing humiliation, suffering, genocide, violations, planned and pre-announced massacres whose victims are essentially women and children.
On this day we want to pay tribute to the women of Ukraine to whom our thoughts and help go.
Let us again throw a bottle into our sea with a common appeal intended for what remains of consciences on our shores".
