Petition to US State Department
Recognize Actions of the Russian Federation in Ukraine as Genocide
My family, friends, and millions of civilians are under non-stop airstrikes and missile rocket attacks in Ukraine. Putin is trying to wipe Ukraine and the Ukrainian people off the map because they refused to join his "Russian World". Let's demand that the U.S. State Department recognize that the actions of the Russian Federation in Ukraine constitute genocide and state terrorism and take action to stop it. Will you stand by and watch the slaughter of civilians, another genocide taking place in real-time? Because Ukrainians want freedom and democracy? Ask the U.S. State Department to fulfill its obligation to the UN Charter and the signed 1948 Genocide Convention. Recognize the genocide of the Ukrainian population happening now. #StandWithUkraine #StopRussianAggression United Nations Charter: Russia violated Article 2(4) of the United Nations Charter, which prohibits the use of armed conflict to resolve disputes absent self-defense or authorization from the Security Council. Definition of Genocide > 1948 Genocide Convention: According to the Article 2 definition, Genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial, or religious group, as such: (a) Killing members of the group; (b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; (d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; (e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group. Attack on Ukraine’s Civil Population as an Act of Genocide: Since 5 am on February 24, 2022, the armed forces of the Russian Federation, with the complicity of the Republic of Belarus, have been inflicting massive missile attacks and bombing airstrikes against Ukrainian cities and towns, destroying residential buildings and critical civil infrastructure facilities. The destroyed roads and bridges make it impossible to deliver food and medicine to many settlements. Downed power lines deprive Ukrainian people of water and heat for their homes. Petroleum products storage facilities have been destroyed making it impossible to repair the damaged gas lines, water supply, and electricity networks. People are not given the warning to evacuate. The attack against Ukraine has been unprovoked. Ukraine hasn’t given the slightest justification for such aggression. Also, there has been not the slightest indication that the actions of the Russian Federation are in any way selective. On the contrary, civilian transport, residential homes, historical city centers, kindergartens, hospitals, and maternity wards are being shelled. Attacks are being carried out throughout Ukraine. On February 24, 2022, the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov bluntly stated the need to "cleanse" Ukraine from "pro-Nazi-minded" people. Vladimir Zelensky, a Jew by nationality, was elected president of Ukraine in 2019 in free democratic elections. There is no "Nazism" in Ukraine. Such statements of the Russian Federation should be regarded solely as justification of already committed and planned acts of genocide by its top leadership. We demand that the actions of the Russian Federation in Ukraine are recognized as genocide and be stopped.
Visa Waiver Program for Ukraine, Extension of TPS and US Peace Host Program
For over three weeks, we have witnessed the instant devastation and human crisis caused by the unprovoked and imperialistic invasion of Ukraine, more than 3 million people have now fled Ukraine. The definition of a war in our era is a group of young people who do not know each other, who do not hate each other, yet who kill each other, sent by old men who know each other, who hate each other, but who do not kill each other. Old politicians do not understand that the world we live in now is completely different from 30 years ago. Our new generation does not need wars, does not want wars, they want to resolve the socio-economic, political, and environmental problems we have not resolved for them. The millions of displaced Ukrainian refugees, and also Russian citizens fleeing the fascist actions of their ruler, have been welcomed by neighboring countries, but they are getting packed up. The U.S. has shown its financial, economic and especially military support to Ukraine, but now, both the current administration and the legislation must show support and commitment to the refugees. Politicians should not make us feel like if they are taking this crisis as if they were playing videogames in their couches. The United States needs to make plans for those refugees to come to our country now! The White House and members of Congress should understand that constituents from all over the nation are concerned about the direct consequences of their decisions and we demand that they take a decisive action to provide a program for the people fleeing Ukraine and Russia. If they don’t the American people will hold Congress and the current administration accountable for their inaction. Our government needs to do something now to provide relief and accommodate refugees from Ukraine, as well as Russian dissidents, who are the real victims of this war! We must not delay in welcoming them to the United States. President Biden must sign an executive order immediately, to commence a Visa Waiver Program for refugees of Ukraine and dissidents from Russia seeking entry into the United States, so they can apply right and begin traveling immediately to the United States, without the need to apply for asylum, because the refugees from Ukraine cannot be added to the backlog of asylum cases already in the system. The US government must also extend the current temporary protection status for a longer period of time. The American people want to help. We want to be directly involved in the solution. President Biden must start a "Peace Host Program", in which thousands of American individuals and families, are ready to host refugees of both countries, Ukraine and Russia.

White house to commit to Ukraine no fly zone
How can we sit back, relax and see these demons kill innocent children of Ukraine? WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF SOMEONE KILLS YOUR CHILD? HOW CAN WE LIVE IN THE WORLD, WHERE ONE MEAT BAG - PUTIN, SLAUGHTERS CHILDREN AND WE ARE SITTING AND WATCHING IT? FOR DONATIONS CLICK HERE - TINY HOUSING REFUGEE CAMPS I do not understand the world. First, we supply Ukraine with lethal weapons and when time comes, where president Zelenskiy is asking for real help, we stay back and say - “it is not our war” or “if we close air space in Ukraine, it will mean war with Russia”. Why are there so many DOUBLE STANDARDS? THE UNITED STATES AND OTHER COUNTRIES DECLARED WAR WITH RUSSIA THE MINUTE UKRAINIAN SOLDIER SHOT THE WEAPON GEARED TOWARDS RUSSIANS, SUPPLIED BY THESE COUNTRIES. What kind of excuse are we coming up with now to avoid direct conflict with Russia. What kind of people are we??? Do we have hearts and brains? How we can sit there and see Putin laughing in our faces, lying to us. How can we allow these demons to use illegal weapons? Putin clearly doesn't care about any of these threats. 90% of Russia does not have running water, heating and other necessities. They can survive in any condition. Economic sanctions will not hurt average Russians. Only Russians can destroy Putin, but they are all brainwashed zombies. They love and support Putin. Russian news channels are doing everything to glorify Putin. Anybody who says anything about Putin publically gets assassinated without any witnesses. Just to name few - Boris Nemtsov, Vladislav Listyev and former billionaire Mikhail Khodorkovsky who lost everything and spent many years in jail before escaping to Germany for saying "who is putin" at one of the VIP events. Putin is 21st century HITLER. He is a DEVIL in human flesh. THERE NO ROOM FOR STUPID DIPLOMACY WITH DEMONS!!!! Russia is world's enemy #1. Because of Russia, evolution stops. We must move forward, not backward by watching Russia slaughter innocent people. HOW CAN WE LET THIS GO FOR SO LONG?????? What is wrong with us? What is wrong with Biden and the EU? This is ridiculous and we must at least help save Ukraine! Without our direct participation in this conflict, innocent people, mothers, fathers, and children of Ukraine will die!!! How in the world Biden is saying no?????
Impose Humanitarian No Fly Zone Over Ukraine
We are asking the U.S. and NATO leaders to impose a limited No Fly Zone over the areas of Ukraine where humanitarian aid needs to be delivered, and vulnerable citizens need to be evacuated. Putin’s army is not adhering to the ceasefire agreements, so the only way to protect the residents as they attempt to evacuate is to employ a No Fly Zone. We understand that the US and NATO leaders are concerned that a No Fly Zone will be considered an act of war by Russia. This is why we are only petitioning for a limited No Fly Zone for a humanitarian corridor, in areas where people no longer have access to food, water, or power. They need to be evacuated now, or they will die. Many foreign policy experts are also calling for a limited No Fly Zone as a humanitarian operation. Please join us, and sign this petition. Thousands of lives depend on the swift bold measures of our leaders. Foreign Policy Experts Advocate 'Limited No-Fly Zone' As Humanitarian Outcry Grows
Mr. President: Fire Victoria Nuland!
January 2022 -- The world is now racing toward a "Cuban Missile Crisis in reverse," where Russia is faced with the existential threat of nuclear weapons and NATO forces positioned along her border. The person most responsible for this dangerous state of affairs is Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland. It was Nuland who masterminded the violent coup d'etat against an elected government in Ukraine in 2014. She proclaimed in a December 13, 2013 speech to the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation Conference that "We’ve invested over $5 billion to assist Ukraine", and we now know that the money was "invested" in building up an apparatus for Regime Change. In Nuland's famous intercepted phone call to US Ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt, she detailed her plan to install a puppet regime in that country, a plan which was carried out to the letter. The consequences were severe. The putsch re-awakened the Cold War which the world had hoped had died with the Warsaw Pact in 1991. It also re-awakened and empowered the Banderist movement which had collaborated with the Nazis in World War II. News coverage only a few weeks ago called attention to a pro-Nazi march in the Ukrainian capitol of Kyiv, and an annual neo-Nazi rock concert, also held in Kyiv, was attended by Ukraine's Prime Minister two years ago. The rest of the world is worried about these developments, which is why the United Nations has passed a resolution on “Combating Glorification of Nazism". The U.S. and Ukraine were the only nations who voted to oppose this resolution, in a moment of shame for our nation. Mr. President, before this situation spirals further out of control, you must demonstrate to the rest of the world that we have come to our senses. Fire Victoria Nuland, and reverse our nation's pro-Nazi vote at the U.N.
Petition to The Walt Disney Company, Bob Iger
Pull out of Russia
Ever since the start of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine there has clearly been a humanitarian crisis. Russia has been accused of war crimes and therefore US companies started pulling out. This company was one of them. As you probably know The Walt Disney Company owns The Walt Disney Company Europe, Middle East and Africa which in return owns The Walt Disney Company CIS that is headquartered in Moscow Russia. It is responsible for all of the streaming content like Disney+, and the Disney Channel among other content and product licensing such as any activities for Disney Cruise line and National Geographic, along with productions in Russia. I am calling on The Walt Disney Company to do the right thing by discontinuing service of Russia indefinitely and moving the headquarters of The Walt Disney Company CIS elsewhere.
Petition to Charles G. Koch
Koch Industries leave the Russian Market
Koch Industries is still on the updated Yale Sonnenfeld list of companies that have not left or diminished business with the Russian Federation. In fact, they are still listed in the worst rated category of "Digging In" meaning they are "Defying Demands for Exit or Reduction of Activities" and thus received a grade of F by Yale. Koch Industries has released a public statement backing up their stance. In no way do they claim their work to be essential, and make no case beyond their continued profiting. Koch industries not only misrepresents us as customers and our feelings towards geopolitics but are looking to make more revenue off of expanding business within Russia as so many other companies leave. It is time for us to hold Koch Industries responsible by letting them know we will no longer purchase their products. As global citizens this is just another reason to avoid Koch and their constant enabling of corruption. We should do everything we can to boycott their products. Here you will find a list of all of their companies and subsidiaries: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koch_Industries
Earth and Space Science Community Anti-War Statement
Statement From Members of the Earth and Space Science International Community We are Earth and space scientists, science communicators, and educators dedicated to the discovery of and solutions to societal challenges. We issue this joint statement to call on world governments and global leaders to do everything possible to expedite the end to the brutal Russian assault on Ukraine. We welcome other professional scientific communities to join our appeal. 1. The Earth and Space Community is an ecosystem of researchers working together and supporting each other. At this moment, our colleagues in Ukraine are being shelled with missiles and many have been forced to escape with their families from the war zone. We salute "Science for Ukraine" grassroots efforts and urge world governments to support Ukrainian students and science professionals. 2. We recognize that many of our Russian colleagues do not condone the actions of the Russian government and military, yet their ability to do research will soon be significantly curtailed. Many of them are also risking their freedom and life to protest the war. We call on world governments to support those who want to escape Russia and bring their talents to the democratic world. 3. We are well aware of the existential risks posed by anthropogenic climate change due to our reliance on fossil fuels. As we have just witnessed, it also threatens world security by complicating a decisive joint response by world governments to deprive Russia of its primary source of war funding. We urge world governments to intensify their efforts of transitioning to renewable energy for building a more democratic and resilient world. 4. As Russia is now indiscriminately targeting Ukrainian civilians in its war of attrition – a brutal strategy it did not hesitate to follow in the past – we cannot afford to wait for another red line to be crossed. We believe that implementing and sustaining sanctions on Russia's oil and gas revenues is a necessary action requiring immediate implementation. We believe that the heroic sacrifice of the Ukrainian people in defending their democratic values will inspire most of the democratic world to endure temporary increases in the cost of oil and gas domestically. 5. We recognize the unique threat that accompanies conflict among nuclear states, and we emphasize that the consequences of even a regional-scale nuclear war could cause a global “nuclear winter” that would kill all plant life and thus eliminate our food supply and destroy human civilization as we know it. We call on world governments to reduce the possibility of destructive nuclear war and its consequential catastrophic nuclear winter. We call forward as a science community, together and resolute, the accountability of our governments to submit and execute these considerations. The time to act is now!
