Free Nations League – it is a union of the Bashkir, Buryat, Ingrian, Cossack, Kalmyk, Tatar and Erzya national movements, openly declaring the goal of creating new national states and secession from Russia.

The activists timed the open letter to coincide with the annual Captive Nations Week, which has been held in the United States since 1959. The representative of Buryatia Rajana Dugar-DePonte, the Tatar Irshat Khabi and the representative of the Finno-Ugric people Erzya Vitaly Romashkin staged a rally in Washington with the flags of their peoples.

“As a Buryat, it pains me to realize that the Kremlin is using Buryat guys to achieve their criminal goals – capture new territories and expand the borders of the empire. War – this is all that Moscow is able to offer the guys from the Buryat villages. Die like cannon fodder in another Russian war of conquest. I do not wish such a future for Buryatia and my people”, – said Rajana Dugar-DePonte.

She believes that the peoples of Russia have become in fact hostages of the Moscow regime, who have no choice but war or prison.

“We do not see the future of our peoples as part of Russia and do not want to be responsible for the war crimes of the Kremlin& #8221;, – Romashkin added.

On July 20, the Free Nations League will hold a press conference with representatives of the national movements that make up the League. Buryats, Tatars, Bashkirs, Ingrians, Cossacks, Kalmyks and Erzyans will take part in it. Activists also plan to hold rallies in American cities to assert their right to self-determination.

“Today we are in the same position as Ukraine, Estonia, Lithuania or Latvia 40 years ago. We will push for decolonization”, – said Irshat Khabi.

In Russia, there is a criminal article for public calls for the implementation of actions aimed at violating the territorial integrity of the state. It provides for up to five years in prison. And another article for violating the territorial integrity of Russia, which provides for up to ten years in prison.

In 1992, the Far East demanded independence, Siberia demanded independence in 1993. In 1992, the Sverdlovsk and Chelyabinsk regions also wanted to leave Russia, which were transformed into the Ural Republic. By order of President Boris Yeltsin, the referendum on the republic's status never took place. Karelia, Dagestan, Tatarstan and Chechnya (Ichkeria) demanded recognition of sovereignty at various times.
