Russian propaganda is desperately trying to create a smokescreen, twisting facts and calling outright terror against Syrian civilians – the “war on terror”. Russian war criminals are hailed as heroes in Russia, although the civilized world has repeatedly expressed concern and dismay at the disproportionate share of peaceful targets hit by the Russian air strikes in Syria. In fact, Putin just used terrorist threat of ISIS to bomb rebels position and civilians who can support rebels troops.

For over 9 months, the international volunteer community InformNapalm has been painstakingly collecting bits of information on war criminals – pilots and navigators of the Russian air grouping in Syria. They killed hundreds of civilians, including women and children, destroyed infrastructure, causing a humanitarian catastrophe and driving tens of thousands of Syrian citizens to flee the country. Every pilot who pressed the bomb release or missile launch button, everyone who fulfilled criminal orders, must be identified and brought before the International Criminal Court.
We are calling on all those who care about the situation in Syrian and Ukraine to study this information and spread it through social networks and the media. We believe that a war criminal encouraged by his anonymity under such impersonal umbrella terms as “green men”, “Russian airforce” or “Russian officers” would be assured of his impunity. However, we hope that our publications will make officers of the Russian airforce reconsider the personal consequences and refuse to carry out criminal orders. Refuse to take the blood of innocent people on the conscience. Perhaps this publication will be another contribution, which would help save lives and prevent further bloodshed, and keep some servicemen from making the same mistakes.
