Dear Mr President,
Dear members of the Executive Committee,

In the light of the recent invasion of the free and sovereign Ukrainian democracy by Russia, we address you this petition to request the immediate removal of Vladimir Putin from the position of Honorary President at the International Judo Federation. As members of the global judo community, we are shocked by the lack of clear and responsible reaction of the organization representing our beloved sport. Judo is a martial art founded on the basis of defence against attack, mutual respect and honor, but also one of the main sports at the Olympics. We acknowledge that since several years the first honorary member of our great and united family is a man who embodies the exact opposite of our values. Maintaining the presence of Vladimir Putin on this honorary position dangerously links our sport to the political interests of the Russian state and to what is happening on the Ukrainian battlefields. Judo is about peace, not terror.

with kind Regards,

Michał Legień, Adam Brysz, Jean Kostrzewski
