A Call to Russian Soldiers

A Call to Russian Soldiers:
Why do you kill these people
who try to defend their homes,
or escape your hellfire?
What lie can you have been caught
by that would allow such brutality?
See the grievous terror you have wrought,
are still wreaking.
What can you plea as explanation,
How can you continue to make Hell
on earth continue, ripped into this 
bloodbath of destruction, when you,
brave kind you,
could choose, use your might
to reclaim sanity, to save the world?
[“what if they gave a war, and nobody came?”]
