Is it all legal?

It’s an order of magnitude more legal than invading another country.

Is Putin a war criminal?


The truth is sometimes hard to believe. But at least there is a chance when we tell it.

Your president is lying
Ваш президент врёт
We know that you are good people who want to live in peace and see your children grow up happy, healthy and caring for others.

But we also know that there is no free press in Russia and you are being fed lies about the war in Ukraine every day.

Therefore, you may not know that thousands of innocent people, including women and children, are being massacred. Or that Russian troops withdrew from Kyiv, leaving evidence of the executions of many civilians.

Please believe that this war started by Vladimir Putin is illegal and has already been condemned by 141 countries of the world. Your president is lying when he says that Ukraine is a threat to Russia and is full of Nazis.

If you cannot or do not want to believe what we write, then please at least ask yourself the questions that should be lurking in your soul. Why did your president silence the free press? Who benefits from this war?

We are sure that you, like us, do not want people to die, for children to grow up as orphans, for families to be torn apart.

We call on you to be on the side of friendship between peoples.
Мы знаем, что вы хорошие люди, которые хотят жить в мире и видеть, как ваши дети растут счастливыми, здоровыми и заботятся о других.

Но мы также знаем, что в России нет свободной прессы, и вас ежедневно кормят ложью о войне в Украине.

Поэтому вы можете не знать, что тысячи невинных людей, включая женщин и детей, подвергаются резне. Или что российские войска ушли из Киева, оставив свидетельства казней многих гражданских лиц.

Пожалуйста, поверьте, что эта война, начатая Владимиром Путиным, незаконна, и её осудила уже 141 страна мира. Ваш президент врёт, когда говорит, что Украина представляет угрозу для России и полна нацистов.

Если вы не можете или не хотите верить тому, что мы пишем, тогда, пожалуйста, хотя бы задайте себе вопросы, которые должны таиться в вашей душе. Почему ваш президент заставил замолчать свободную прессу? Кому выгодна эта война?

Мы уверены, что вы, как и мы, не хотите, чтобы гибли люди, чтобы дети росли сиротами, чтобы семьи разрывались на части.

Мы призываем вас быть на стороне дружбы между народами.
