According to the petition, Switzerland must help stop the Russian war machine that has been bringing death and destruction to Ukraine for almost two months and forcing millions of Ukrainians to flee.
Just as Switzerland takes care of receiving refugees from Ukraine, it should also grant Russian conscientious objectors and opponents of the war in Russia the right to seek asylum in Switzerland. The Swiss authorities should announce this measure publicly and worldwide.
Signatories from Greens and SP
A total of 6557 people have signed the petition. The first signatories include Green President Balthasar Glättli, the two co-presidents of SP Switzerland, Mattea Meyer and Cédric Wermuth, the politician and sociologist Jean Ziegler and Vania Alleva, president of the Unia trade union.
