Appeal to the worid cynological community
I am turning to you as a citizen of Ukraine, as well as the head of one of the largest international cynological organizations, whose headquarters is located in a country whose territory was treacherously, without declaring war, attacked by Russia. Now Russian bombs are destroying our cities and massively killing civilians and their pets.
We address all international cynological organizations to exclude Russia from membership in your organizations. These decisions should not be taken halfway, based on a policy of double standards, but the toughest. The deduction of fees, corruption schemes, holding a dog show by one organization or another should not become an obstacle for making this decision regarding all cynological organizations in Russia.
The leadership of some international cynological organizations actually supported terrorism, by holding a dog shows, granting and recognizing titles with abbreviations of their head organizations, as well as issuing stud documents, with their registered emblems, in the occupied Ukrainian territories (Crimea) by Russia since 2014. This actions eventually led to a full-scale war in Ukraine. We regard such short-sighted political actions of the leadership of those leading cynological organizations as complicity with terrorists. These activities have nothing to do with cynology, they are based only on the profits of the headquarters of these organizations.
The decision of the FCI dated February 27, 2022 to restrict the activities of its representative in Russia - the RKF, is considered to be not tough enough. The decision of IKU to hold a dog show in the occupied territories (Crimea-Ukraine) is generally unacceptable. The international cynological organizations UCI, ACW and others must also decide their position.
After you make a decision concerning Russia, the position of your organizations will become clear to the whole world. In case if you keep supporting an organization from the aggressor and occupier country, we will also use all means available to us to seek the closure of the activities of your representatives whether it is FCI, IKU or any other international canine organizations in Ukraine as organizations supporting terrorism. We will also convey our position to your other representatives in other countries, and cover it in world media sources.
Only the complete exclusion of Russia from world cynology can confirm your activities as truly democratic organizations that have nothing to do with Russia - the aggressor and occupier country.
Organizations that support terrorists and aggressors have no place in world cynology.
