Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • The President of the Russian Federation, V. Putin, has unleashed wars of military aggression against Georgia, Ukraine and exacerbated the violent conflict in Syria and the brutal suppression of the people of Chechnya;
  • In 2008, Putin unleashed military aggression against Georgia resulting in the continuing occupation of Abkhazia and South Ossetia;
  • Putin abetted the cruel bombing of civilians in Syria, including use of chemical weapons, causing hundreds of thousands deaths, massive destruction and millions of refugees;
  • In 2014, Putin invaded and illegally annexed Crimea, covertly invaded Ukraine's Donbas region - which caused more than 10,000 deaths, more than 20,000 injuries, millions of displaced people and tremendous destruction;
  • Putin has covertly sponsored assassinations and terrorism activities to destabilize Ukraine;
  • Armed groups under Putin's covert command shot down MH-17, over eastern Ukraine, which resulted in 298 civilian deaths;
  • Putin regime has killed Russian dissidents, journalists, human rights advocates some even living abroad, and severely repressed Crimean Tatars and Ukrainians, killing a number of them and imprisoning many.
We, the undersigned, Citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to declare Putin a War Criminal and refer him to the International Criminal Tribunal in The Hague for crimes of aggression, war crimes, crimes against humanity and for sponsoring terrorism.
