Appeal of the residents of Mesker-Yurt to the Commission on tortures
of the Council of Europe
Dear Members of the Commission,
We, inhabitants of the village Mesker-Yurt, where Russian soldiers
having been carrying out retaliatory operation since May 21, appeal to
you for help. We know that thanks to your persistency the Commission was
allowed on May 26 to visit the village Alkhan-Kala several times having
been turned into the slaughter-house. The criminals of Russian army are
afraid of publicity. Today, the best friend of Russia S.Milosevich is
under trial of international Court in Hague. S.Milosevich was welcomed
and decorated with a medal by the deputies of State Duma of the Russian
Federation when the genocide in Kosovo reached the acme. The deputies
took their stands in front of him, unlike the others who later met the
President of the United States B.Clinton, idly sitting in the armchairs.
Dear Mr. Haik Zdenek*, Poland many times has experienced the reprisal of
the chauvinist policy of Russia. The number of victims amounts hundreds
of thousand of the tortured and shot people. Under the imperial call of
the sun of the Russian poetry A.Pushkin the Russians shot the Warsaw
revolt in the 30s of the 19-th century. When at the end of World War II
the Sovinformbureau reported about the Red Army hurrying to help the
anti-fascist Resistance Movement in Poland, this army of Russian
fascists based near Warsaw inactively watched the retreating German army
carrying out retaliatory operations. Today the Poles say that Germany
several times apologized for the crimes committed by the followers of
anti-humanist ideology. The things are different with Russia. Russia has
never apologized, and will never do it. The last visit of Putin in
Poland was a demonstration of the above-said. The Chechens are not
wondered at this. The Russians do not intend to abandon the ideology of
We appeal to you to visit Mesker-Yurt. We hope that thanks to your
authority and possibilities the world will be informed on the crimes
committed by the Russian troops against humanity in Mesker-Yurt and in
Chechnya. We are in the hope that international Community will make the
Russian military criminals answer for their atrocities in Chechnya.
Representatives of the village Mesker-Yurt
