As people around the world mark the one-year anniversary of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, some peace activists are finding the conflict is not so black and white.

President Joe Biden has pledged enduring support for Ukraine with humanitarian, financial and military resources totaling $75 billion, but William Hopkins, executive director of New Hampshire Peace Action, said his organization opposes any further U.S. military shipments to Ukraine.

"What Russia has done is criminal. It is immoral. It is unjust," he said. "But I also feel like we as Americans should own the ways that our own government contributed to creating this."

Hopkins said the U.S.-backed coup in Ukraine in 2014 helped fuel the current crisis, which according to Russian President Vladimir Putin is now part of a greater battle against the Western elite.

The United Nations estimates more than 8,000 Ukrainian civilians have been killed and more than 13,000 injured during the year-long battle. Putin has said he is open to negotiations and that it is Ukraine officials who are unwilling to talk.

Hopkins said he doesn't see much political will for diplomacy in a conflict that requires a diplomatic end.

"We need to talk," he said. "We need to get Russia to the table, get Zelensky to the table and come up with a way to reverse course."

Hopkins said the war in Ukraine has created conflict in the peace community itself over how the U.S. should proceed. He said part of New Hampshire Peace Action's mission is education, and he'll continue to provide different perspectives of the ongoing crisis.
