Stanislav Yevgrafovich Petrov was a lieutenant colonel of the Soviet Air Defence Forces who played a key role in the 1983 Soviet nuclear false alarm incident. Without his decisive action the world would have been thrust into total nuclear war, possibly ending our existence as it is known today. Of all the people we set aside days for in remembrance, Petrov is still forgotten. However without his sacrifice we wouldn’t even be around to remember these people and their actions.

 

Share this petition, honor Petrov’s sacrifice, and set aside a day to remember his impact on our world.
