White House Petition Against Russian Magnitsky Act

As of December 24, three days after the "We The People" petition was created, there are over 35,000 signatures.  The White House has deemed that 25,000 or more signatures on a petition will prompt a Presidential response.


Identify Russian law-makers jeopardizing lives of Russian orphans responsible under "Magnitsky Act".

We, the undersigned,
- acknowledge the adoption of "Sergei Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act of 2012" as a profoundly pro-Russian step which will help Russian citizens bring individuals involved in corruption and violation of human rights to justice;
- are outraged with the actions of Russian law-makers, who breached all imaginable boundaries of humanity, responsibility, or common sense and chose to jeopardize lives and well-being of thousands of Russian orphans, some of whom, the ill and the disabled ones, now might not have a chance of survival if the ban on international adoption is to be put in place;
- urge this Administration to identify those involved in adopting such legislature responsible under "Magnitsky Act" and thus included to the relevant list.
