On September 6, 2022, the European Commission approved a proposal to suspend visa facilitation with Russia
For many Russians, who were vehemently opposed to Putin's policies and were planning to use tourist visas to emigrate in order to apply for refugee status, the road to freedom was thus made more difficult.
Among the victims were representatives of oppressed groups (LGBTQ+), for whom being in Russia poses not only a moral but also a physical threat. Leaving Russia is the only way for them to preserve their lives, health, honor and dignity. 
We ask for an easier visa regime or a special visa (like the "Nansen visa" in 1920) so that these people can leave.
Save us!!!


This demand is important because a law against the regime should not kill the hope of those who seek freedom.

Thank you for your support, Kirill Timoshenko from Москва
