Appeal by representatives of Ukrainians Worldwide and Peoples all over the world who support Ukraine and Ukrainians in their war against Russian aggressor

Russian Federation “special operation” against Ukraine, initiated by the Kremlin dictator, approved by Russian legislature and supported by a large part of Russian elite, has acquired indisputable signs of total terror against Ukraine and Ukrainian people. Moscow repeatedly resorted to this method of “pacifying” Ukraine and Ukrainians in the seventeenth and twentieth centuries. This gives ample reason to officially declare Russia a terrorist state.

We, representatives of Ukrainians Worldwide Movement and peoples from other countries who support Ukraine and Ukrainians in their war against Russian aggressor, DEMAND:

From the President, Verkhovna Rada and the Government of Ukraine:

— to officially declare the Russian Federation a terrorist state;

— not to enter into any negotiations with the aggressor until the last Russian soldier leaves the territory of sovereign Ukraine;

— after that, negotiations with Moscow can be held only on the procedure for compensation for damages caused to Ukraine and Ukrainians by this and other aggressions;

— to initiate a criminal case by Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine against Russian President Vladimir Putin and his inner circle for organizing the above-mentioned “special operation” and declaring them internationally wanted, or even outlawing them;

— demand the expulsion of the Russian Federation from the UN.

From presidents, legislatures and governments of countries that are aware of the Kremlin regime terrorist nature and support Ukraine and Ukrainians in their resistance to Russian aggression:

— to officially recognize Russian Federation as a terrorist state and take all possible measures to completely isolate Russia from the world;

— initiate the exclusion of Russia from the UN as a terrorist state that does not comply with the UN Charter;

— immediately provide direct and effective assistance to Ukraine and Ukrainians in accordance with the requests of the President and the Government with arms and funds without any delay: by resisting Russian aggression, Ukraine and Ukrainians defend your freedom;

— consider the politicians and government officials of your countries who continue expressing their concerns, delays or sabotage of the assistance to Ukraine and Ukrainians to be consciously or unconsciously on the side of the terrorist state and take appropriate measures against them;

— do not overestimate the power of Russian armed forces, which are defeated by smaller and weaker militarily, but stronger in spirit and motivation Armed Forces of Ukraine;

— stop being afraid of threats and blackmail from the Kremlin, which respects only force and principle;

— support and stimulate the national liberation movements of the peoples enslaved by the Russian Empire.

From the UN, UNICEF, UNESCO, WHO, WTO, etc .:

— deprive the Russian Federation of membership in your organization as a terrorist state that commits crimes against humanity, commits genocide, kills children, destroys historical and cultural monuments, violates human rights, etc .;

— call on the governments of the member countries to refrain from cooperating with Russia as a terrorist state.
