You can search for some quotes about peace in 1280 languages at https://www.bible.com/en-GB/search/bible?q=peace

Here are a couple in just English and Russian.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Matthew 5:9 (NIV)

Послание Иакова 3:18 (SYNO)
Плод же правды в мире сеется у тех, которые хранят мир.

True peace between people doesn’t just involve finding the right words and understanding them (though that helps). It involves the acknowledgement of the pain we have felt and the pain we have caused. It involves a desire for reconciliation and it involves healing and restoration to a level that would sometimes require a miracle.

Fortunately the God of peace, is also a God of healing and of miracles.
