Agata Kornhauser-Duda posed for a photograph holding a sheet of paper with the motto: “#Russian Women Stop The War,” public broadcaster Polish Radio’s IAR news agency reported.

The First Lady noted that the International Women’s Day was a major occasion in Russia. 

She voiced hope that “if this message spreads far and wide around the world, it will break through the Russian censorship, reaching the hearts and minds of thousands of Russian women.”  

“Women can achieve a lot together and believe they really can stop the war in Ukraine!,” Agata Kornhauser-Duda stated.

Throughout the day, Poland’s female government officials and diplomats joined the initiative, posing with the anti-war message to Russian women.

Among them were the employees of the finance, health and infrastructure ministries, the Border Guard agency, Poland’s ambassador to Austria Jolanta Róża Kozłowska, as well as female staff at the Polish embassies in the United States, Malaysia, Indonesia, India and Luxembourg.  

The appeal received support from abroad, as well, including from the Montenegrin First Lady, Lidija Đukanović.

Ukraine has been battling the Russian invasion of the country since February 24.
