Press Announcement: The Global Benefits of Post Russia

8th FNP Forum, The Global Benefits of PostRussia, will take place in October 2023 in two cities:

Context and Vision

The Soviet Union’s collapse in 1991 (stage two of the Russian Empire’s collapse that began in 1917) transformed into the 20th century’s biggest geopolitical asset.

Now, the question is how can we finalize the collapse of the Russian Empire (as the “Russian Federation”) through controlled, non-violent decolonization to achieve the best outcomes for the entire civilized world in the 21st century, and guarantee free, open societies and a new architecture of collective security

There is a simple answer: real win-win partnerships: global powers (NATO, the EU, the United Kingdom, France, the US, Japan, Germany, Italy, Bharat, Turkey, Poland, Israel, the UAE, Taiwan, Qatar, South Korea, Canada, Brazil, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Australia, etc.) and regional “mentor” neighbours with geographical proximity – from Norway to Japan, from Suomi to Kazakhstan, from Estonia to Mongolia, from Lithuania to Azerbaijan, from Poland to Turkey, from Latvia to Ukraine, from Sweden to Sakartvelo) can help captive nations and colonized regions not only to free themselves from Moscow’s imperial occupation, but also provide support for reconstruction and successful state-building among new neighbours (independent states of the post-Russia area).

For centuries, Kremlin propaganda has justified military atrocities, repressions and acts of genocide (and now terrorist acts and the existence of a terrorist state) by stating that decolonization of Moscow’s empire would “somehow” create a “catastrophe”(sic!) in the world.

It’s time to realize these fears are absolutely groundless.

The dismantling of Europe’s empires has become an uncontroversial, even banal story. Both decolonization and de-imperialization brought benefits and advantages to all parties. If we draw upon the experiences of the past, we can minimize our risks now. We have every opportunity to make the process as controlled and non-violent as possible.

Moreover, decolonization of the “Russian Federation” is key to reducing the global nuclear threat. All future states in the post-Russian area, as the leaders of their national liberation movements will confirm in our Forum’s summary memorandum, support complete rejection of nuclear weapons. The new independent states will not need them.

Moreover, Russia’s disintegration will help restrain the increasingly aggressive, unhealthy imperial ambitions of the PRC. Post-Russian independent states in northern and eastern Eurasia will seek cooperation and partnerships primarily with Tokyo, Washington, Seoul, Taipei, Astana, Ottawa, Ulaanbaatar, Canberra, Paris, London, Brussels, Berlin, Rome, Ankara, Warsaw etc. but not authoritarian Beijing.

Another popular horror story of Moscow propaganda is that, without its “imperial eye and firm hand,” chaos and a “war of everyone against everyone” will break out among the new states.

But, as experience shows, Estonia and Latvia, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Moldova — all already freed from Moscow’s occupation — did not start wars among themselves. Where wars happened (Sakartvelo, Ichkeria, Armenia-Azerbaijan), it was Moscow igniting, supporting, creating conflict. Ideas of a “great” ethnic state that includes “all historical lands”, prone to confrontation, aren’t a more optimal path to success than reasonable compromise with neighbours by creating compact, developed, people-centred independent political nations.

Could the infantilism of the “historical lands of our nation” (when the question of the size and borders of newly independent states becomes a painful fetish) become a source of real wars?

If we also consider past experiences Ex-Yugoslavia (successful ones like Slovenia, Montenegro and Macedonia, the difficulty for Croatia and tragedies for Bosnia and Kosovo) and the bitter lessons of creating borders during the Berlin Conference on Africa, of course, – No.

It won’t be “war of everyone against everyone”.

Realpolitik ceases to be a pragmatic tool and becomes a thing in itself when the only purpose of preserving the existing status quo is its preservation. Especially when it’s not only detrimental, but also threatening and creates disasters, it stands in the way of far-reaching actions, decisions, strategies, visions and tactics. Today, realpolitik not only contradicts the values of the free world and liberalism, but is our enemy.

If we do not change how we approach relations with the Russian Federation, the People’s Republic of China and Iran (as well as the less powerful, but equally cruel regimes of Assad, Maduro, Lukashenko and the Taliban), this will lead the world into catastrophe, just like appeasing Hitler and Stalin in the 20th century resulted in the most terrible tragedies in humanity’s history.

From de-occupied Ukrainian Crimea in the West to the liberated Japanese Karafuto in the East, from independent Ichkeria, Kalmykia, Ingushetia, Cherkessia etc. in the South and to independent Ingria, Karelia, Komi, Sakha etc. in the North, with independent Bashkortostan, Tatarstan, Chuvashia, Buryatia, Siberia and Ural in the heart of Eurasia, the world will become much safer, freer and more developed after the Russian Empire’s final decolonization.

Discussion Panels

London 12.10.23:
1. Lessons learned from mistakes made during the successful decolonization of other former colonial European empires (British, French, Dutch, Belgian and Portuguese) over the past 70 years, as well as the case of Austria after the Austro-Hungarian Empire and Turkey after the Ottoman Empire as possible references for the ex-metropolis (Moscow)
2. How to ensure and organize the full, 100% and rapid denuclearization of the post-Russian area and all its newly independent states
3. Investment potential of Post-Russia new independent states: The global economy has not encountered an opportunity like this since Deng Xiaoping’s “opening of the People’s Republic of China”

Paris 14.10.23:
1. Examining de-imperialization as an opportunity for the development of diverse cultures and languages and a boon for residents of (ex)metropoles: benchmarks of France and Paris, the United Kingdom and London (+ USA, as a non-ethnic ex-colony, Spain and Latin America, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, etc.)
2. “Roadshow” of the future independent states in post-Russian space: challenges and opportunities for regional alignment (maximizing local and regional benefits of decolonizing the Russian Federation)

3. Real win-win partnership: how create & turn post-Russian spaces into frontiers, not buffers (as a guarantee against revanchism and phantom imperial pains)

Public Debate
Three rounds (one hour each) devoted to:

In London
1. Architects of post-Russian space: Who exactly should they be? Is really “the future of Russia is in the hands of the Russians themselves”?
2. Time “X”: how to accelerate complete decolonization through peaceful secession and independence of the states in post-Russia space. Are referendums necessary and if so, when? The devil is in the details: terms, formation, conditions, key questions.
3. How to pre-emptively prevent alliances among authoritarian and totalitarian states—the MBTP Axis (Moscow-Beijing-Tehran-Pyongyang) and their satellite regimes (Assad, Maduro, Lukashenko, the Taliban) — before they plunge the entire free world into World War III (and
the first nuclear one)?

In Paris
1. War crimes, acts of genocide and terrorism – Is this Putin’s war or Russia’s? Are war crimes simply the consequence of the imperial essence of Moscow (currently the “Russian Federation”) or individuals’
defects that can be quickly eliminated?
2. Multiple statehood for “Russians”/”the Russian people”: an absolute condition for long-term peace and development, a desirable but not a critical option, or a bad decision with many negative consequences?
3. Being “Russian” daily becomes more shameful and toxic: in addition to the return to the national roots of Russified nations (Tatars, Oirats, Buryats, Sakhas, Karels, Circassians, Bashkorts, etc.), there is the prospect for renaissance of former ethnic identities (Merya, Erzya, Smolensk, Novgorod, etc.) and popularization of “new” regional and political national identities (Ingria, Siberia, Urals, Kuban, Pacific Region, etc.).
What are the pros and cons, advantages and disadvantages?

Planned Summary of the 8th Free Nations Post-Russia Forum

An agreement in the form of a declaration (Zero Nuclear Weapons Post-Russian Pact) regarding the automatic, complete, immediate renunciation of all nuclear weapons (and all other weapons of mass
destruction) by all future independent states of post-Russia space.
Complete denuclearization is a basic condition for recognition, legitimization and future partnership in international relations.

More about Free Nations of Post-Russia Forum platform:
Founded in spring 2022, the Free Nations of Post-Russia Forum is international community and public platform that unites leaders of the movements of captive nations and regions of the so-called “Russian
Federation” (which isn’t a real federation) with Frenchs, Lithuanians, British people, Japanese, Poles, Americans, Czechs, Finns, Ukrainians, Georgians, Austrians, Belarusians, Turks, Germans, Kazakhs, Azerbaijanis and others with the aim of promoting peaceful, non-violent decolonization of Russia.
We engage in an anti-colonial national liberation struggle against Moscow’s imperialism.
We have already held FNP Forums at the EU Parliament, in Japan, the US, Sweden, the Czech Republic and Poland.
Our next event, the 9th Free Nations of Post-Russia Forum, will be held in Berlin and Rome in the first half of December 2023.

BİZ KURİL ADALARININ JAPONYA’YA GERİ VERİLMESİNİ TALEP EDİYORUZ! BAĞIMSIZ TATARİSTAN HÜKÜMETİNİN JAPONYA BAŞBAKANINA AÇIK MEKTUBU Sayın Fumiyo Kişida beyefendi! Biz, Bağımsız Tataristan Hükümeti olarak, Sizi ve Sizin Hükümetinizi kalpten selamlamaktan mutluluk duyuyoruz! Biz, kadim Tatar milletinin temsilcileri olarak, Moskova’nın sömürge rejiminden kaçarak, vatanımızın dışında Tataristan’ın bağımsızlığına ulaşmasını amaçlayan bir Hükümet kurduk. Bizim ülkemiz 470 sene önce silah gücüyle ve sinsi bir şekilde Moskovya tarafından ilhak edildi. Adaletsizlik, saldırganlık, yalan ve ikiyüzlülük asırlar boyunca bu imparatorluğun yöneticilerine hastır. Sizin ülkenizin bir parçasını da bu insanlık dışı imparatorluk ilhak etmiştir. Medya üzerinden öğrendiğimize göre 22 Nisan 2022 tarihinde Japonya Hükümeti resmi olarak ilk defa Güney Kuril adalarını yasadışı bir şekilde işgal edilmiş ülkenizin «kuzey toprakları» olarak ilan etmiş. Şüphesiz ki, Japonlar için tarihi adaleti sağlamak v

Открытое письмо президенту Турции Реджепу Эрдогану! Предлагаем татарам ближнего и дальнего зарубежья создать региональные отделения ВТОЦ!

Открытое письмо президенту Турции Реджепу Эрдогану!  Предлагаем татарам ближнего и дальнего зарубежья создать региональные отделения ВТОЦ!    Вы, уважаемый Реджеп Эрдоган ведёте активную деятельность по расширению сферы турецкого влияния, для единства тюркских народов. Действительно, за последние годы Турция активно продвигает идею тюркского единства, с такими странами как - Азербайджан, Казахстан, Узбекистан, Киргизия, Туркменистан и мы очень благодарны вашим действиям. Но, в то же время Вы не замечаете, когда грубо нарушается национальные права тюрков, а именно в Поволжских республиках: Башкортостане, Татарстане и Чувашии.  Напоминаем Вам, за 20 лет Путин своими делами доказал, что не зря занимает свой пост, за все эти годы он пахал, как раб на галерах. И он доволен своими результатами - уничтожены сотни политические партии, общественно-политические движения, благотворительные фонды и СМИ... 2 марта 2021 года Российский правозащитник Лев Пономарев объявил об окончательной ликвидации

День Памяти татарского народа! Беларусы солидарны с татарами!

День Памяти татарского народа! Беларусы солидарны с татарами! Смена поколений для каждого народа сказывается зеркалом движущейся истории, каждый народ проходит испытания: бывают дни радости и дни скорби. И мы должны помнить и чтить память наших предков.  У каждого народа есть свои исторические национальные герои, которые своим героизмом, своими подвигами, рискуя своими жизнями, отстаивали интересы своего народа, родного края и государства. Их героизм и борьба должны быть примером для нас и для будущих поколений, воспитывая крепость и стойкость духа, в защите национальных прав и свобод своего народа. Вспомним некоторых патриотов своего народа, которые оставили след в истории человечества: украинцев - Тарас Шевченко, беларусов - Константин Калиновский (Кастусь Калиновский), индусов – Махатма Ганди, палестинцев – Ясир Арафат, латиноамериканцев – Че Гевара, англичан – Маргарет Тэтчер, французов – Жанна Д’Арк, Южной Африки – Нельсон Мандела, афроамериканцев – Мартин Лютер Кинг, чеченцев - Б
