Anti-War Campaigners Condemn Decision to Send British Troops to Ukraine
WASHINGTON - Lindsey German, convenor of Stop the War, said "After British military exercises in Ukraine last year; Nato's long known intention to construct a military base in Ukraine, and the US supplying weapons to the Kiev government, David Cameron's latest decision to send British troops to the Ukraine is another very dangerous development that will escalate an already tense stand off between Russia and the West."
Stop the War was founded in September 2001, in the weeks following 9/11 when George W. Bush announced the "war on terror". It has since been dedicated to ending the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, bringing the troops home and forcing the British government to change its disastrous foreign policies. We have initiated many campaigns around these issues and are also committed to opposing sanctions and military attacks on Iran, supporting Palestinian rights, opposing racism and defending civil liberties.
