Seven Russian deputies from St. Petersburg call for the removal of the country’s president, Vladimir Putin. Legislators sent on Friday (9) an official letter to the country’s lower house, in which they describe that hostilities in Ukraine “put the security of Russia and its citizens, as well as the economy at risk”.

Deputies also point out that the war failed to stop NATO – on the contrary, it caused the alliance to expand across Eastern Europe – and suggest that Putin be removed for treason against the nation, according to the article 40 of the Constitution from the country.

A direct letter to Putin was also written by lawmakers. “His rhetoric of intolerance and aggression has plunged Russia back into the Cold War,” the deputies said. “Russia has returned to fear and hatred, threatening the whole world with nuclear weapons”, they describe.

“We ask that you step down from your post, because your views and your management model are completely outdated and impede the development of Russia and our human potential”, declare the deputies directly to Putin.

Despite the demonstrations, the autocratic character of the country’s president will not only prevent any measure to remove him from office, but will also punish the deputies. One of them, Alexei Gorinov, for example, was sentenced in July to seven years in prison for speaking out against the war in Ukraine.

“It is a courageous act”, opines Mikhail Lobanov, of Putin’s opposition. “Unfortunately, I’m sure that in present-day Russia they will have big problems. Of course, today millions of people in our country are dissatisfied, but they are afraid to talk, write and publish about it.”
