Similarly to the rest of the globe, Pakistani celebrities have taken to social media to express their displeasure with the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
Since Russia stated that Vladimir Putin would order a “special military operation” in Ukraine on Thursday, February 24, the globe has been demonstrating for peace. There’s a lot of talk out there about a “full-scale invasion” taking place in eastern Ukraine, where explosions and military activities have been taking place.
The hashtags #RussiaUkraineConflict, #WorldWar3, #StockMarketCrash, #StopWar, and #Taiwan have been trending on Twitter since Putin’s address on the suburbs of Kharkiv, Kramatorsk, Mariupol, and the capital Kiev.
Pakistani celebrities, like the rest of the world’s famous personalities, are using their social media accounts to express their support for Ukraine.
Pakistani Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousufzai has urged Russia to stop the strike since violence has always inflicted irreparable harm.
History tells us that wars cause irreversible and unimaginable loss. Civilians are killed; homes, schools and places of worship destroyed. People need peace, stability and dignity more than anything else. Russia must stop the attack on Ukraine immediately.

For nearly half a decade, my family called Kyiv home. The people of Ukraine have every right to their sovereignty, without unprovoked aggression from their neighbors. Praying for all human lives & hoping for better sense to prevail. War is never the answer. #RussiaUkraineConflict
