Appeal of the Anti-War Committee to members of United Russia

The Anti-War Committee appeals to members of the United Russia Party to stop assisting the regime of war criminals, thieves and murderers.

Since February 24, 2022, Russia’s political leadership has been committing war crimes, crimes that are already being investigated by international criminal courts. The perpetrators will be brought to justice.

By attacking a peaceful state, Vladimir Putin has made all those in government in Russia complicit in this crime. The United Russia party certainly bears much of the responsibility for the Kremlin’s actions.

It is the members of the United Russia party who carry out Putin’s criminal orders through local authorities, who accept and approve the Kremlin’s orders and legitimize them locally. The United Russia party is instrumental in Putin’s actions and supports his criminal regime, which is why we believe that its members should be held personally responsible for the actions of the Kremlin, along with Putin’s closest entourage.

Like the NSDAP members, members of United Russia, whose names are available to the Anti-War Committee and the international community, will be subject to lustration, financial and legal restrictions, and in some cases criminal prosecution. The only way to avoid this is to openly and publicly declare their opposition to the criminal regime.

The Russian Anti-War Committee calls upon United Russia members to make the only possible choice a human being can make and leave the party. This is the only way to prevent subsequent punishment for the crimes of the regime.

Those party members who want to break away from the party of thieves and murderers, can publicly declare this by sending their application to the bot @AgainstwarBot in Telegram.
