Demonstrators in Brussels called on the EU and NATO to engage in diplomacy, not arms deliveries

BRUSSELS, Feb 26 – Demonstrators in Brussels held a protest on Sunday against the EU and NATO policy towards the Ukrainian conflict, called for an end to the supply of weapons to Kyiv and engage in diplomacy to achieve peace, the correspondent reports.
The posters carried by the protesters demanded “stop sending weapons to Ukraine”, “send diplomats, not tanks”, “oppose NATO”, “declare war on war”, and also spend funds on the needs of the population, and not on building up military production.
One of the demonstrators came to the rally to demand “the removal of NATO headquarters from Belgium, and Belgium itself to leave NATO.”
There were also angry appeals personally to the President of the European Council Charles Michel, the head of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen and the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell “immediately begin to act for the good of the world.”
Earlier, the leaders of European institutions announced an increase in arms supplies to Ukraine, rejecting even a truce in the Ukrainian conflict in the current conditions.
The head of EU diplomacy Borrell said that in early March, at a meeting with defense ministers, he would present specific proposals for increasing the production of ammunition in the European Union for supplies to Ukraine and replenishing the empty warehouses of European armies.
The action was organized by the European Platform for Peace and Solidarity, as well as a number of political parties and human rights activists. More than 1600 people took part in it.
