Tell Biden to help Ukraine by engaging in negotiations, not military escalation
As Biden is in Europe, tell him to reject military escalation.
A no-fly zone would mean U.S. fighter jets shooting down Russian planes, which means a U.S.-Russia war—possibly a nuclear one. Likewise, transferring Polish fighter jets or sending in a NATO peacekeeping (aka boots on the ground) mission would escalate the war to WWIII.
Encourage Biden to support Ukraine by contributing to negotiations, not military escalation.
*After you sign, you will be directed to contact Congress, to tell them to oppose a no-fly zone.
Dear President Biden,
As you attend NATO and G7 meetings and travel to Poland this week, we, the undersigned, ask you to stay firm in opposing the transfer of Polish MiG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine and the imposition of a no-fly zone. We ask you to offer support to Ukraine in the form of serious and vigorous negotiations, not military escalations.
You rightfully nixed the plan to transfer Polish MiG-29 jets upon realizing that this would be a dangerous escalation as Russia would see it as the U.S. as joining the active combat in Ukraine. We are aware that pressure is mounting on you from Poland and from members of Congress to reverse this decision and we appeal to you not to.
As the transfer of fighter jets, the imposition of a no-fly zone would be a dangerous escalation. It would mean the U.S. Air Force would essentially become part of the Ukrainian military and would become directly involved in the war with Russia. As Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said, we must seek to “end this war in Ukraine, not start a larger one.”
Poland has said that during the NATO summit they will formally propose a NATO peacekeeping mission in Ukraine — another dangerous escalation. The Kremlin responded to this by calling it "reckless" and warning that could easily lead to a direct clash between Russian and NATO forces. We ask you not to support Poland’s proposal and, when you are in Poland, to encourage their government to support negotiations rather than increased NATO involvement in the war.
We know that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is pleading for a no-fly zone, fighter jets, and NATO entry into the war. While we are absolutely horrified by Russia’s invasion, we know that the best and only peaceful way to support Ukraine and stop more lives from being lost is to have the U.S. engage in the Ukraine-Russia negotiations by expressing support for Ukraine being a neutral country, providing an off-ramp for sanctions, and opposing any further expansion eastward of NATO
We need a ceasefire urgently and ask you to help accomplish that.
