Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • Russian president Putin is personally responsible for an authoritarian regime in Russia, criminal system of kleptocratic feudalism, suppression of political and civic opposition and independent media;
  • Putin enabled theft of Russian assets in collaboration with corrupt officials and oligarchs, which destroyed Russian economy, health care and education systems, resulting in tragic events - such as mass deaths during a fire in Kemerovo;
  • Putin orchestrated cruel aggression against Georgia and Ukraine and supported Assad regime in Syria - resulting in deaths of tens of thousands of people, causing unforgettable traumas to Georgians, Ukrainians, Crimean Tatars and Syrians;
  • Putin sabotaged western democratic systems via interference in US presidential election and parliamentary elections in Europe;
  • Putin challenged safety and security of Europe with destruction of Flight MH17 in 2014 and use of chemical weapons against United Kingdom in 2018;
  • Putin's regime used Western financial systems for money laundering of illegally obtained assets.
We, the undersigned, Citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to - Investigate and deport individuals collaborating with Russian secret services, including diplomats, Rossotrudnichestvo agents and Russia Today channel;
- Investigate the actions of certain organizations of Russian diaspora such as "Immortal Regiment" to ensure they are in compliance with Canadian law and Canada's national security interests;
- Expand Magnitsky Law to ensure that corrupt Russian officials could not hide their illegally obtained assets in Canada and cannot use Canada as a shelter for their family members;
- Review visa policies for family members of corrupt Russian officials and businessmen that fall under Magnitsky Law.
