Promotion of Russian literature in the European Union

The petition was blocked due to violation of our terms of use.
Petitions that violate the Terms of Use of openPetition will be terminated and are no longer publicly available.

Reason for blocking

Offensive, derogatory and discriminatory petitions will be terminated and blocked. This includes, but is not limited to, insults, degradation and discrimination based on gender, age, appearance, origin, social status, religion, disability, marital status or sexual orientation.

You can not demand a general ban of Russian literature. It is necessary to specify which group of authors (e.g. Kremlin propagandists) you want to ban, because else your petition could be interpreted as an attempt to erease a whole cultural identity. We want to add, that not every Russian writer is a supporter of the ongoing war and by demanding a ban of all Russian authors you would also ban critical voices, because there is no differentiation.

The initiator of the petition was made aware of the violation of the terms of use by the openPetition editorial team and had five days to revise the petition. This did not happen. The petition was therefore blocked.

Help us to strengthen citizen participation. We want to support your petition to get the attention it deserves while remaining an independent platform.
