Dear Russian Embassy,
I write to express my disgust and outrage at what your Country is doing in
Syria and in particular in Aleppo at the moment.
I am numb from reading articles and viewing footage watching innocent
civilians being made suffer because of your government’s greed and lust for
Your government is responsible for turning Aleppo into hell on earth. Your
government is engaging in WAR CRIMES.
I ask that your government stop bombing and using gases on these innocent
people. I ask that your government talk to America and find a way forward
that is not destructive of innocent life.
PLEASE STOP THE BLOODSHED.
Lisa O’ Reilly
Dear Honorable Ambassador Maxim A. Peshkov,
I am writing to you to express my utter disgust at the outrageous, indiscriminate mass murder of the civilian population in Syria and particularly in the city of Aleppo, that Russian government is carrying out.
I want you to know that the righteous citizens of this World are not going to stand by and watch the Russian barbarity idly. We will stand against it in any way we can – no act too small, no voice too insignificant.
The medieval primitives and thugs that you call your leaders are cowardly bombing hospitals, schools and households across Syria, killing innocent children, women and men.
Please read that last part once again and reflect on it for a while.
Concerned Outraged Citizen,
As a concerned Irish citizen, I wish to protest at the continuing Syrian and Russian bombing of the city of Aleppo which, according to newspaper reports, has in recent weeks led to the deaths of around 320 civilians, including 100 children. Does this obliteration of an ancient civilised city and the mass murder of its citizens (including its innocent children) not strike a chord of humanity in the hearts of ordinary Russian people? Do they not also wish their government to use its huge influence with the Syrian government to end this horror today? Please pass this message – DECLARE A CEASEFIRE SO THAT INNOCENT CIVILIANS CAN BE SAVED AND RESTART TALKS AIMED AT ENDING THE WAR – to President Putin.
Dear Ambassador Peshkov,
Why is it that your country believes that innocent Syrians deserve to die? Why is it that your country kills innocent Syrian civilians on a regular basis and has done so since September 2015? Why is it that Russia props up and supports a murderous, defunct, illegitimate Assad regime in Syria? Why is it that the Russia air-force uses such abhorrent tactics in Syria as cluster bombing and double tap strikes to inflict maximum fatalities and carnage? Why does Russia play with Syrian lives as part of your country’s global geopolitical game of chess? Finally, why did this Syrian child deserve to die like this?:
I eagerly await Russian answers, but if you don’t mind I would like to make some suggestions to Russia; stop its involvement in the Syrian war immediately, withdraw all Russian war personnel and weaponry immediately, play its part in bringing lasting peace to the country, and reflect upon its abhorrent murderous actions.
Kieran Cunningham – A saddened and angry Irish citizen
Vladimir Putin is guilty of war crimes against civilians living in Syria,. He may believe he has a legal right to be present there but he has no right to kill innocent people.
I sincerely hope he is brought to a court of Justice to answer for this evil he commits.
Mr Putin and government, I beg you to stop your campaign of destruction in Syria. All human beings have a right to live in peace in their own homes, to bring up their children without fear and deprivation, to have enough to eat and drink and to sleep safely at night. Stop and consider your actions. Whatever your motives, not one person in Syria or anywhere else deserves to suffer or die because of them. Talk to other leaders, find a way of peace that does not involve this mindless destruction, deprivation and killing. You are human beings too, try to find it in your heart to treat your fellow humans as you would want to be treated.
Stop now ! Do something positive and constructive instead. Please don’t ignore my message.
To the Russian Ambassador to Ireland Mr. Peshkov
(in copy President Michael D. Higgins & Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade Charles Flanagan)
as an Irishman, I find it highly offensive to have an embassy of the Russian Federation in this country. Russia’s ongoing cowardly slaughter of civilians in Aleppo and elsewhere in Syria is deplorable and a stain on all humanity.
Russia’s abuse of international diplomacy to further it’s own selfish ends is a disgrace and you, as a diplomat, are in integral part of those perverse and cynical machinations. When you presented your credentials to our President, did you not give him certain undertakings? Are you living up to those undertakings now as you massacre Syrian children in their beds?
It is Ireland’s shame not to have expelled you before now. Allowing you to have a presence here facilitates the pretence that you are capable of behaving like a civilised nation when in reality you behave as medieval thugs.
I hope our country soon finds the courage and sense to expel you.
The blizzard of lies issuing from the Russian state about it’s activities in Syria (and Ukraine)
just shows how lacking in any moral sense it’s government is.
Do you think we are such fools as to believe a word that emanates from Russian sources.
Not since Hitler has a state and it’s leader used terror on such a scale against a civil population.
Your people suffered Stalingrad and know that barbarism doesn’t win in the long term.
For you, it seems, your job is to continue lying on behalf of your State.
I feel sorry for you.
