Putin’s propaganda is still being broadcasted in Switzerland, spreading hate speech and calls for violence. We petition the Swiss Government and Swiss broadcasting companies to stop those harmful broadcasts.
On the 24th of February the Russian armed forces began a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. A bloody catastrophe broke out in the very heart of Europe, a catastrophe that has already taken tens of thousands of lives, a catastrophe that has left more than a million people homeless, caused enormous damage to the Ukrainian economy, slowing down the economic growth globally and threatening future starvation in some regions. In many ways, this apocalypse was made possible thanks to Vladimir Putin's devilishly sophisticated and professional propaganda machine, which, skillfully manipulating facts and fiction, managed to feed Russians so much hate and animosity towards Ukrainians that a substantial part of the former unconditionally support the invasion! Remarkably, that Putin's propaganda machine is particularly hard to counter due to the enormous flow of fakes that it produces without break.
This is why we are so concerned by the fact that, after two months of aggression in Ukraine, Putin's propaganda channels continue to mislead freely the Swiss population, spread hatred and call for violence. This is a fragment of an address from the 15th of April 2022, which was broadcast on one of the channels:
«Everybody must realize that mobilization and a world war await us - a world war for survival, for the destruction of all our enemies. Our national ideology is war. And our only duty, the only duty of our government, is to explain and deliver to the entire Russian people this heroic image of our future."
It is forbidden by law to incite hate and animosity, as well as to spread calls for violence, which is why we demand Swisscom, UPC/ Sunrise and Salt to remove the Russian propaganda channels immediately from their packages:

What are you, whiny childern? Censorship is exactly what propagates all problems 10x. Sweeping them under the rug because it is ugly to stare it in the eye is the worst thing to do. Face the ugly with courage and condemn it accordingly!
