Dear friends

I welcome your initiative to draw attention of the European public to the danger of return of Nuclear threat to the European soil.
In this year that marks the 20th annivesary of the signature of the historic INF Treaty that eliminated the extremely dangerous US and Soviet euromoissiles from the continent it is important to remain vigilant and actively resist any plans of making Europe once again hostage to the fear and prejudice characteristic of the Cold War
