Sign The Petition To Free Vladimir Kara-Murza

We, the undersigned, stand in solidarity with Vladimir Kara-Murza and call on Russian government, specifically the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, to release Vladimir Kara-Murza and acquit him of all charges.

The charges against Vladimir are politically motivated and a violation of his fundamental human rights. Vladimir has dedicated his life to defending democracy and human rights in Russia, and his imprisonment is a clear attempt to silence him and intimidate others who dare to speak out against the Putin regime. We urge the international community to join us in condemning his arrest and to hold the Russian government accountable for its ongoing human rights abuses.

Vladimir Kara-Murza is a prominent Russian politician and human rights activist who has been in opposition to Vladimir Putin's government for many years. He has faced two poisonings in retaliation for his outspoken criticism of the Putin regime's crimes and corruption. In April 2022, he was arrested for speaking out against the war crimes committed by the Russian army in Ukraine and calling for the establishment of an international tribunal to hold those responsible accountable. He was later charged with high treason for making speeches about political repression and censorship in Russia. The official indictment said that his speeches “created a threat to the security and constitutional order of the Russian Federation and damaged the reputation of the Russian Federation on the international level.” His trial is ongoing, and he faces up to 24 years in prison if convicted.

We would like to end this statement with the words of Vladimir’s wife Evgenia: “I completely share the conviction of Andrei Sakharov, civil rights advocate and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, that publicity is ‘the main weapon in the struggle for human rights’ and this weapon should be used every time human rights are being violated and human dignity and life are endangered.” With these words in mind we are coming together to show our support for Vladimir.
