For those who want to remain neutral

Two posts from the LinkedIn page of Shaun Topham.

For those who want to remain neutral about the russian malevolence, imagine for a moment that this was your daughter, wife, sister or niece. Use your human capacity for empathy, as painful as that might be.
Ruslana was just eighteen when russia began its malevolent invasion.
Last month her car was shelled and she was robbed of her left leg.
This previous post explains why neutrality is a sly and evil myth:

This profound truth by Bishop Desmond Tutu highlights that every country which abstained in the recent UN vote about russia, are standing with russia. There is no middle ground. Neutrality is impossible.
This means that the following countries have chosen to stand with the malevolent invaders who torture, rape, commit war crimes, genocide and crimes against humanity:
Angola, Armenia, Bangladesh, Bolivia, Burundi, Central African Republic, CHINA, Congo, Cuba, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Gabon, Guinea, India, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Mongolia, Mozambique, Namibia, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Tajikistan, Togo, Uganda, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, Zimbabwe.
These countries must be made to pay. We must cut funding, investment and charitable giving to them. Their corrupted regimes are in stark contrast to the 141 countries that did the right thing by choosing to Stand With Ukraine. They chose to stand by international law. They chose to stand with humanity against malevolence.
Neutrality is a form of cowardice, indifference or laziness and in a few cases, it indicates corruption.
The countries listed above chose to stand with malevolent invasion, torture, rape, war crimes, genocide and crimes against humanity. They must be made to pay for their choice.
Bishop Desmond Tutu was right, there is no middle-ground.


  1. Shaun’s choice of a Tutu quote is apt. The foul regime of South Africa; Tutu’s homeland, is standing with putler, as are neighbours like Zimbabwe and Namibia.
    Almost all the countries on the shitlist are aid recipients: $Billions. All that money must immediately be diverted to Ukraine.
    None of these shit regimes should get any Ukrainian grain.

  2. Mr. Tutu’s quote is true. Countries like Switzerland, who think neutrality is a virtue, are really on the side of the wickedest evil the planet has seen since the days of Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin.

    • To sit by and do nothing while permitting evil to flourish is indeed it’s own crime against humanity. There are two types off sin, that of commission, and that of omission, when one does not what they ought to do. May our leaders be given the courage to do what is right in the sight of God, even if it isn’t easy or popular.
