The constituent right of the Chechen people to freedom
on the occasion of the 12th anniversary since
the murder of President Dzokhar Dudayev
Russia is committing genocide against an independent
state – the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria. In the year 1994, Russian started
a colonial war; there were approximately 250 thousand of peaceful citizens
killed. Chechnya suffered USD 300 billion of material damage. President
Dzokhar Dudayev was killed perfidiously on 21 April 1996.
Thus the Russian army, which consists of 100 thousands
of soldiers, and its handymen – henchmen by Moscow – distinguished
themselves in this land of martyrs.
Chechnya has become for the Kremlin not only a
challenging firing ground for soldiers and ideological technologies. Under
the conditions when the Russian economics survives only by raw production
industry, when its citizens are lack of the essential social and medical
support, its politics are trying to find a way out of this crisis by
searching for enemies and conducting "a war bringing a little winning".
However, they can not break down the Chechens.
To be able to justify their emasculation and
aggression, the propaganda by the Kremlin spreads the myth about a powerful
enemy, the war with which costs a lot. They call the Chechens as terrorists
and the mass media of Russia announce for the whole world that Russia fights
The war conducted against the Chechen Republic of
Ichkeria, under the veil of the fight against terrorism, for President Putin
has become a platform to the president's chair, while for other henchmen by
Special Services - to the places of the State Duma and the Government.
The heads of the largest states and international
organisations continue supporting the ruling circle of Russia in the fight
against the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria and its people committing genocide
by ignoring the protest of the world community.
We are requiring:
1. To give independence to the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria.
2. To pull the Russian army out of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria and to
cover damages incurred;
3. For Russia to observe the provisions of the peace treaty signed between
Presidents Yelcin and Maschadov on 12 May 1997;
4. To provide a legal estimation of the genocide being committed by Russia
in the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria on the basis of the norms of
5. To establish an election system on the basis of democratic principles.
We invite states and all people of good will to provide
the support in every moral and material way possible.
We invite the Chechen people for closer mutual
understanding and solidarity. Value your dignity and ancient traditions.
Don’t surrender to deception and provocation.
During the fight for freedom, which has been lasting
for hundreds of years, the Chechen people has demonstrated their love and
faithfulness for its homeland for the whole world by becoming an example for
the people of the world in the fight for their freedom.
We identify ourselves together with the Chechen people
and take a huge compassion for it.
We ask for the help by the God.
On 21-04-2008 at 12.00 we invite you near Russian
embassy to take part in the meeting on the occasion of commission of murder
of president D.Dudajev.
