I want to link to this article to highlight the sheer oddity of the position of some activist who campaign for peace, although often only with apparent naivety or ulterior motives
It contains a quote from the march organiser from before the invasion, saying this:
Days before the invasion, Wagenknecht portrayed the threat as an invention of western media, telling the broadcaster ARD: “We can be happy that Putin isn’t what he is portrayed to be, namely a crazy Russian nationalist who gets high on moving borders. If that were so, negotiations would probably be pointless.”
So it seems they've just adapted their position to pander to Putin. It why why I see people calling for peace and negotiations I ask 'Ok, but peace at what cost'. Because despite Russia being the recognised aggressor, these people always seem to put the onus on Ukraine to placate Russia. Why never the other way around? Often the reply is along the lines of 'peace is better than war'. Ok, so Ukraine annexed by Russia and subject to ethnic cleansing? Not much of a peace for those abandoned to Putin, is it.
It also always baffles me that they give Putin the benefit of the doubt in spite of all he's done.
