Petition to Olaf Scholz

Open Letter To Olaf Scholz

Deutsch | English Dear Chancellor Scholz, You don't know me, so let me introduce myself so that there is more context to my letter. My name is Nikolay, I'm originally from Russia, and I don't support this senseless, brutal, and meaningless war in Ukraine at all. It's a shame. I have lived in Germany since 2015 and am a college student here. I met many German friends who showed me how a modern, democratic and free society works. My father was the only MP to vote against the annexation of Crimea in 2014, making him a personal enemy of Putin - but personally, that was the proudest moment for me. My mother was also an activist in Russia, also demonstrated against the war in Georgia, and took part in later protests, some of which I also went to. None of my family has stayed in Russia: my grandparents all moved away, my mother to Bulgaria, my father to Ukraine, where he is now working against the war. I am writing to you about the current situation in Ukraine, about the war. I sincerely ask you to do everything possible so that Ukraine wins. I am sure you are doing everything you can to protect peace and our lives. In my opinion, the quickest and most direct solution would be for Ukraine to win, and for that they need heavy weapons. It is no longer possible to negotiate with Putin. He is incapable of it - he cannot be taken seriously when he says he is the tsar taking back "his land". Ukraine is not his land. The Russian parliament has announced that they no longer want to recognize the sovereignty of Lithuania. Lithuania is not his land either. The mood among those who support Putin is “after Ukraine, let's take Poland”, but Poland is not his land either. For Putin there is no agreement that he will not break. Is this really a person worth negotiating with? Putin and his war is an existential threat to our European values, for which Europe paid the big price during World War II: democracy, freedom, peace, and tolerance, but it's also an existential threat to people all around the world. Putin's fascist regime and his army are blocking the export of food from Ukraine, which will lead to worldwide hunger - also in Germany. In this extremely difficult time, Germany must lead and do everything possible to ensure that Ukraine wins, so that Putin knows that his aggression is not working, because the whole world unites to push back against such behavior. This also would mean that China will see this and not wage a war of aggression in the future. Germany is the heart of Europe and should behave as such. In conclusion, I would like to say that all the current connections, agreements and acquaintances that one might have in Russia will become irrelevant soon. New people will come to power in the near future, but right now is an opportunity to create a positive image for yourself in Ukraine. Ukraine will now get as much money to rebuild as Germany or Japan did after WWII. As a result, just like Germany and Japan, it will become an economic miracle. It is reasonable to think that by becoming a part of it, anyone who supports and promotes this miracle benefits enormously, and gains friend status for themselves and their country, but also money through business and economic development. I want this beautiful Germany, where I can feel so welcome, to be seen not as a friend to the irredeemable fascist regime, but to the young, European society, full of potential.

Petition to Olaf Scholz

Offener Brief an Olaf Scholz

Deutsch | English | Русский Sehr geehrter Bundeskanzler Scholz, Sie kennen mich nicht, also möchte ich mich kurz vorstellen, damit es mehr Kontext zu meinem Brief gibt. Ich heiße Nikolay und ich komme ursprünglich aus Russland, und unterstütze diesen sinnlosen, brutalen und bedeutungslosen Krieg in der Ukraine überhaupt nicht. Es ist eine Schande. Ich wohne in Deutschland seit 2015 und studiere hier. Ich habe viele deutsche Freunde kennengelernt, die mir gezeigt haben, wie eine moderne, demokratische und freie Gesellschaft funktioniert.  Mein Vater war der einzige Abgeordnete, der 2014 gegen Annexion von der Krim gestimmt hat, was ihn zum persönlichen Feind Putins gemacht hat – aber ich war so unglaublich stolz auf meinen Vater. Meine Mutter war auch eine Aktivistin in Russland, hat auch gegen den Krieg in Georgien demonstriert und in späteren Protesten teilgenommen, bei manchen davon war ich auch da. Niemand aus meiner Familie konnte in Russland bleiben: meine Großeltern sind alle weggezogen, meine Mutter nach Bulgarien, mein Vater in die Ukraine, wo er jetzt dafür arbeitet, den Krieg zu beenden. Ich schreibe Ihnen wegen der aktuellen Situation in der Ukraine, wegen des Krieges. Ich bitte Sie herzlich darum, dass Sie alles Mögliche machen, damit die Ukraine gewinnt. Ich bin mir sicher, dass Sie alles machen, was Sie können, um Frieden und unsere Leben zu schützen. Meiner Meinung nach wäre die schnellste und direkteste Lösung, für die Ukraine zu gewinnen, und dafür brauchen sie die schwere Waffen. Es ist nicht mehr möglich, mit Putin zu verhandeln. Er ist dazu nicht fähig – Man kann ihn nicht ernst nehmen, wenn er sagt, er sei der Zar, der "sein Land" zurücknimmt. Die Ukraine ist nicht "sein Land". Der russische Parlament hat angekündigt, dass sie die Souveränität von Litauen nicht mehr anerkennen wollen. Litauen ist auch nicht sein Land. Die Stimmung unter denen, die Putin unterstützen ist “nach der Ukraine, nehmen wir Polen”, aber Polen ist auch nicht sein Land. Für Putin gibt’s es keine Vereinbarung, die er nicht nicht brechen wird. Ist das wirklich ein Mensch, mit wem es ist wert, zu verhandeln? Putin und sein Krieg ist eine existenzielle Bedrohung für unsere europäische Werte, für die Europa hat den großen Preis während der 2. Weltkrieges bezahlt: Demokratie, Freiheit, Frieden, Toleranz, aber auch für Leute. Der faschistische Regime Putins und seine Armee blockieren den Export von Lebensmittel aus der Ukraine, was zu weltweiten Hunger - auch in Deutschland - führen wird. In diese äußerst schwere Zeit muss Deutschland leiten, und alles Mögliche dafür tun, dass die Ukraine gewinnt, damit Putin weißt Bescheid, dass seine Aggression funktioniert nicht, weil die ganze Welt einig wird, solches Verhalten zu bestrafen. Damit China das auch merkt und kein Aggressionskrieg in Zukunft führt. Deutschland ist das Herz Europas, und soll sich auch so verhalten. Abschließend möchte ich sagen, dass alle derzeitigen Verbindungen, Vereinbarungen und Bekanntschaften, die man in Russland haben mag, bald irrelevant sein werden. In naher Zukunft werden neue Leute an die Macht kommen, aber gerade jetzt bietet sich die Gelegenheit, sich in der Ukraine ein positives Image zu verschaffen. Die Ukraine wird nun genauso viel Geld für den Wiederaufbau erhalten wie Deutschland oder Japan nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg. Infolgedessen wird sie, genau wie Deutschland und Japan, zu einem Wirtschaftswunder werden. Man kann davon ausgehen, dass jeder, der dieses Wunder unterstützt und fördert, enorm davon profitiert und für sich und sein Land den Status eines Freundes erlangt, aber auch Geld durch Geschäfte und wirtschaftliche Entwicklung. Ich möchte, dass dieses schöne Deutschland, in dem ich mich so willkommen fühle, nicht als Freund des unrettbaren faschistischen Regimes gesehen wird, sondern als Freund der jungen, europäischen Gesellschaft, die voller Potenzial ist. Mit freundlichen Grüßen Nikolay Ponomarev

#LukashenkaTribunal ! Hold Lukashenka to account for crimes against humanity

ENGLISH | ПО-РУССКИ  Please sign this petition. By doing this you will help bring A. Lukashenka closer to justice in the International Criminal Court (ICC). Your signature will be an important instrument for ending the war and restoring world security. On 24 February 2022, Lukashenka, together with Putin, became the aggressors who unleashed a war at the heart of the European continent that risks escalating into a global conflict. By providing Belarusian land as a staging point for Putin’s regime to attack the peaceful people of Ukraine, Lukashenka has acquired a new status – a war criminal. On 28.02.22 the ICC Prosecutor, Karim A.A. Khan QC, has decided to proceed with opening an investigation on the situation in Ukraine. Lukashenka has allowed to violate the sovereignty of Belarus; he has permitted the launching of Russian missiles from the territory of Belarus into Ukraine; he has opened Belarusian borders to enable the Russian military to attack Ukraine. All these acts make Lukashenka complicit in war crimes and a war criminal to be tried by the International Criminal Court Lukashenka must be stopped immediately. The delayed reaction to his actions following the presidential election in Belarus in August 2020 has now led to the war in Ukraine. That year, as on many previous occasions, Lukashenka rigged the election results. However, in 2020, this led to a huge wave of mass protests across the country. In response, the security agencies under Lukashenka’s control, launched a campaign of violence and torture against peaceful protesters. Tens of thousands have been subjected to tortures, including physical, psychological and sexual violence. Thousands remain in prison, the number of political prisoners is increasing every day... All independent media, as well as more than 180 non-governmental organizations were shut down: cultural, educational, human rights, environmental, research, consumer, social and other organisations. It is not only the civil society that has been destroyed in Belarus, but as a result everyone who used the services of these organisations is now left without their assistance. A national hotline for victims of domestic violence and the legal clinic of the Office of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities were forced to close. In addition to this, the Lukashenka regime commits crimes not only in the territory of the Republic of Belarus and not only against Belarusian citizens.  The Lukashenka regime has now become a threat to the entire European and world order (see also  Lukashenka crimes on tribunal.live). – On 23 May 2021, on Lukashenka’s orders, a Ryanair plane which was carrying a Belarusian journalist Roman Protasevich was forced to land in Minsk. Dozens of passengers on the plane, including the citizens of EU countries, were endangered by Lukashenko’s desire to take revenge on his opponent, who remains his hostage to this day. – In autumn 2021, Lukashenka artificially staged a migration crisis on the border of Belarus and the EU. For several months, he continued to threaten and blackmail the European Union. It is important to note that Lukashenka used humans as a tool to influence the EU. Immigrants who, for various reasons, left their homes and country, trusting Lukashenka, lost not only their health, but many of them lost the most precious – their life. We all realize that they wouldn’t have died if it hadn’t been for Lukashenka’s hybrid war. We can’t bring those lives back, but we can avoid more losses. In May 2021, Belarus Women’s Foundation submitted a „Request for Investigation“ to the International Criminal Court (ICC) at The Hague, alleging that Lukashenko were complicit in crimes against humanity. In January 2022, Polish lawyer Tomasz Wiliński also filed an application with the International Criminal Court against Lukashenka and the heads of his security agencies. However, political pressure and political will are required to bring A. Lukashenka closer to justice. If such will is shown and the governments support these requests/applications, the chances of proceedings will increase. Taking into account the above, we appeal to the Governments of the European Union, Canada, The United States, Australia, Japan and the world community to demonstrate their commitment to the principles of humanity and international law. We call for an end to the unpunished actions of Lukashenka’s regime by doing the following: 1. Through a government statement, condemn the actions of Lukashenka and his regime and recognize the regime as a terrorist group. Further, recognize Alexander Lukashenka himself as an international terrorist for being an accomplice in starting a war in Europe, being responsible for war crimes, and for the deaths of civilians in Ukraine. 2. Provide assistance in initiating a criminal case in the International Criminal Court against Alexander Lukashenka for crimes against humanity. Sign the petition and share it on social media groups and forums! Your signature and support can be decisive!
