Selecting “a Russia of Pushkin” over “a Russia of Putin”


From, based by Baryshnikov, outstanding Russian author Boris Akunin, and economist Sergey Guriev (all expats):

The “Russian Federation,” which has been taken over by a dictator, has unleashed a legal conflict.

This can be a blow to all of us who belong to the Russian tradition and who converse Russian. The very phrase “Russian” has turn into, on this planet’s eyes, poisonous.

However a thousand instances worse is what is occurring to our shut kin, the Ukrainian individuals. Earlier than our eyes a real humanitarian disaster is unfolding. Many tons of of 1000’s of Ukrainians have misplaced every little thing: their properties, their livelihoods, their property.

And the variety of refugees will develop, the state of affairs will solely worsen. Most of us are removed from the place that is occurring, many very far. We now have no energy to finish this nightmare. However we can not, we don’t wish to, we shouldn’t have the appropriate to do nothing. The least that we are able to do is to assist people who find themselves fleeing the Russian—no, the Putin—military.

Let all of us within the Russian world assist Ukrainian refugees.

The dictator is waging conflict not solely on Ukraine, but in addition on his personal nation, denying it its future, stamping out and destroying all that’s dwelling, changing it in all places with dying. However the true Russia, is larger, stronger, and longer lasting than Putin’s “RFia.” It lives and can stay dwelling.

Allow us to show this to ourselves and to the entire world. Please, contribute to assist Ukrainian refugees.

Russians of all international locations, unite towards the conflict!

The “There’s a Russia of dictatorship, and there’s a Russia of tradition, a Russia of Putin and a Russia of Pushkin” quote is from Baryshnikov in a Self-importance Truthful article. I discovered of the undertaking by way of a video by Andrey Makarevich, a outstanding anti-war Russian singer.

You may contribute right here; the funds will undergo the UK-based Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC). I requested DEC whether or not they have a US-tax-deductible affiliate, however they informed me no; I even have a question in to TrueRussia. TrueRussia’s attraction has apparently raised over $1M at this level.
