Speaking at the request of the Russian delegation to the UN Security Council on Wednesday, rock legend Roger Waters, founder of Pink Floyd, called for an immediate end to the war in Ukraine.
Waters started his address by condemning the Russian invasion of Ukraine “in the strongest possible terms,” going on to say that “the Russian invasion of Ukraine was not unprovoked, so I also condemn the provocateur in the strongest possible terms. There, that’s got that out of the way.”
Speaking on behalf of the international anti-war movement, Waters declared, “From the four billion or so brothers and sisters in this voiceless majority, who together with the millions in the international anti-war movement represent a huge constituency: enough is enough. We demand change. President Biden, President Putin, President Zelenskyy, USA, NATO, Russia, the EU, all of you, please change course now. Agree to a cease-fire in Ukraine today.”

At one point, Waters evoked John Lennon, the Beatles legend who led the peace movement in the 1960s and 1970s and penned anti-war songs such as ‘Give Peace A Chance.’ “So what do the voices of millions have to say. They say, thank you for hearing us today,” ?” the Pink Floyd founder told Security Council members. “We are many who do not share in the profits of the war industry. We do not willingly raise our sons and daughters to provide fodder for your cannon. In our opinion, the only sensible cause of action today is to call for an immediate ceasefire in Ukraine. No ifs, no buts, no ands, not one more Ukrainian or Russian life is to be spent, not one. They are all precious in our eyes.”

After Waters finished addressing the Security Council, Russia’s Deputy U.N. Ambassador, Dmitry Polyanskiy, said, “We just heard a very precise analysis of events from Roger Waters, one of the most prominent activists of the contemporary anti-war movement. Mr. Waters has consistently opposed wars and violence for several decades, and that theme has permeated his world, famous songs, and the fact that he wanted to address us demonstrates the great deal of concern among the international creative intelligence here and among everyone about where our world is headed.”
Russia had convened the Security Council meeting to discuss how the West is escalating the conflict by supplying additional weapons to the Zelensky Regime.
