This is a decisive moment for Western policy toward Russia. Do we allow a Russian military victory in Georgia which will reinforce Russian militarism and further weaken its democratic forces (the Russian media is already a propaganda machine for the state), or do we take the proper action that will reinforce democracy and international law.
Georgian Community and Friends of Georgia in San Francisco appeal to you to:
* Demand the immediate withdrawal of Russian troops from Georgia
* To take the diplomatic lead and dispatch US envoys to the EU, Russia and Georgia to coordinate international action
* To demand an immediate ceasefire and the end of civilian targeting by Russian planes
* The establishment of a new international peacekeeping regime in South Ossetia to replace the failed Joint Control Commission controlled by Russia.
If Russia fails to cooperate and continues bombing of Georgia and occupation of the parts of its territory, the international community must take the appropriate action including measures to ensure the diplomatic isolation of Russia. This is a decisive moment for Western powers and the we hope that both the USA and EU clearly recognize the danger to political stability in Europe that Russian military aggression present.
