We are Russian* people living abroad. We don’t support the war; we don’t support our government and we unite all Russians around this simple idea – no to war.
Since the start of the war, we’ve been standing with Ukrainians at their protests. However, we shall not just support, but also stand as our own community and speak to the government of Russia. So we did, and started to organise protests in front of Russian Embassy. We urge people, who originate from Russia. for self-organization, for using their voice to stand against propaganda and to express their definitive disagreement with the war, to support the ones arrested in Russia for peaceful protest against the war.
We connect with Russian activists from other cities, share experience and organize actions together. We use the new White-Blue-White flag to see each other. The new flag is similar to the current Russian flag, but without the red stripe, a symbol of war and blood.
In Russia of the Future, there is no place for autocracy, militarism, the cult of violence and blood. We are opening a new page in the history of Russia —without the cult of war. We have an immense opportunity to become a strong society, the opinions of which our historic homeland will have to respect.
We want the war to stop, and the guilty ones to be charged.
*There are two words in Russian language – for citizen or Russia, and for an ethnical Russian. In English, it’s just Russian. We are not talking about ethnical Russians, but anybody who originates from Russia.
