A year of war in Ukraine.
A year of terror, a year of sorrow and bewilderment.
We never thought a year ago to see weapons again in the heart of Europe.
We thought that with the end of World War II such a thing would never be repeated, instead we are witnessing scenes of pain, families who greet each other in tears because they know that they will never be reunited, parents who are forced to hand over their children to their fate.
A year of sadness and stolen, torn affections.
And after a year the war is still there, telling us that we must never forget the lessons of the past, that a minimum tension can generate chaos if we are not careful.
War destroys people, art and culture, it destroys the life and history of a people.
We hope that a climate of dialogue will be established as soon as possible, that a return to true and lasting peace will be achieved.
We need peace, we need a Ukrainian people who return to normal life
