Your voice is URGENTLY needed to designate Russia as “State Sponsor of Terrorism”

Written by 

Only 14 000 signatures for a  petition calling to designate Russia as “State Sponsor of Terrorism” are needed by May 23, 2014 to reach goal of 100 000.

If this goal is reached,  the petition will be officially considered by the Obama administration.

“In its unannounced war against Ukraine, Russia relies on covert operations which fall squarely within the definition of "international terrorism" under 18 U.S.C. § 2331,” the petition reads.

The petition also says that armed operatives of Russia, acting under disguise, “attempt to influence the policy of Ukrainian government by intimidation or coercion.” They also try to affect the conduct of a government “by assassinations and kidnapping, taking by force government buildings, police posts and military bases of Ukraine.”

The authors of the document note that “this activity is being conducted on large scale and over prolonged time period”, despite condemnation by the USA, G-7, NATO, EU and UN.

In its unannounced war against Ukraine, Russia relies on covert operations which fall squarely within the definition of "international terrorism" under 18 U.S.C. § 2331.

“Accordingly, Russia must be officially designated as "State sponsor of terrorism," the document reads.

The petition was registered on the website on April 23, 2014.

You can sign the petition here.
