Turn Russia's diplomatic compounds in the US into a Boris Nemtsov human rights centre.
President Obama seized two Russian diplomatic compounds in Maryland and New York in December 2016 as part of his retaliation against Russian interference in the election. Russia insists on the immediate return of its "diplomatic property" and threatens to expel US diplomats if this is not done soon. Every day new evidence of the extent of Russian interference in the 2016 election emerges, yet President Trump has done absolutely nothing to punish Russia for this, and instead says he wants to move on with Vladimir Putin and forget the past. Demand that President Trump keeps the diplomatic compounds and converts them into a Boris Nemtsov human rights centre to honour the memory of a courageous opponent of Putin's violence, who was shot dead in front of the Kremlin in February 2015.
