Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • The Russian Federation attacked Ukraine in 2014 and launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022 in violation of international law;
  • On April 27, 2022 the Government of Canada unanimously declared that the Russian Federation is committing acts of genocide against the Ukrainian people;
  • There is extensive evidence that the Russian Federation continues to perpetrate horrific acts of violence against Ukrainians, (including but not limited to rape, torture, and murder) in order to force Ukraine to surrender their sovereign territory;
  • The conduct of the Russian Federation against Ukraine meets the definition of terrorism set out in section 83.01(1) of the Criminal Code of Canada; and
  • Reasonable grounds exist to believe that the Russian Federation is a state supporter of terrorism.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to add the Russian Federation to the List of Foreign State Supporters of Terrorism.
