To the Russian government, we say: we call on Russia to fully abide by its obligations under international humanitarian law. Safe access to humanitarian corridors should be offered to the internally displaced persons and passage be allowed for those civilians who want to leave. Russia must cease its military action and withdraw its forces from the entire territory of Ukraine. TSCF calls for the next leaders of Russia to democratize and destalinize their country.
To the Russian people – as distinct of their government – we say: increase your civic participation even though you must expect a government backlash. Claim for peace, democracy and a fair share of wealth inside your own country. Support democracy, as you are the only ones who are able to make it progress in your own country – it is your responsibility.
