In the form of an international conference on the peaceful decolonization of the post-Russian space. This was reported by the Organizing Committee of the Forum.

It is planned that the conference participants will agree on decisions on the peaceful dismantling of the Russian Federation; determine the borders of future independent states; create a mechanism for the division of assets-debts of the current Russian Federation; and, also, they will work out the basic parameters of the structure of the post-Russian space, especially in the first few years of transition.

The result of this work is expected to be the adoption of the Memorandum on the termination of the existence of the Russian Federation and the Declaration of Independence of the Confederation of Siberia. 

Here are some interesting  reflections of the  Ukrainian publicist Taras Shamaida about the enslaved peoples and about the future of Russian colonies.

1. Any peace with Russia is just a pause before a new Russian attack. And even the military defeat of Moscow or long-term international sanctions do not mean the elimination of the Russian threat.

Russia cannot be occupied, just as the anti-Hitler coalition occupied Germany. But it is also impossible to denazify, demilitarize and democratize from outside.

The only way to liberate the subjects of the Russian Federation from slavery, and the world from the Russian threat, is the collapse of the prison of nations. And the only engine of such a collapse can only be national and regional movements within the Russian Federation.

2. We must first overcome the artificial obstacles in our own heads. Overcome provincial thinking (“this is an unbearable task”), isolationism (“what difference does it make what is behind the curb”) and despondency (“these peoples do not want freedom”).

Today “everything is silent in all languages”. Enslaved peoples experience brutal assimilation. Moscow is doing its best to mold them into one people and use them as cannon fodder.

But national movements have the property of gaining extraordinary strength in a matter of years, and yesterday's obedient slaves are aware of themselves as representatives of a people striving for freedom. It is enough to compare, for example, the strength of the Ukrainian movement for independence in 1914 and, say, in 1919. Or in 1986 and 1991.

3. Transferring the hatred of Ukrainians from Russians to Buryats, Chechens and other enslaved peoples is part of the Russian strategy. A disproportionately large part of the representatives of these peoples in the Russian troops in Ukraine is for Moscow a means of their physical extermination, as well as sowing enmity between them and the Ukrainians. Both facilitate the assimilation of these peoples and complicate the collapse of the empire.

Fairly demanding punishment for everyone who came to Ukraine with weapons, it is important to realize that all of them, regardless of ethnic origin, are Russian criminals, and not representatives of their peoples.

The belonging of many murderers to the enslaved peoples of the Russian Federation does not make the cause of the liberation of these peoples and the collapse of the empire less important. Just as the crimes committed by Ukrainians as part of the Soviet troops in Czechoslovakia or Afghanistan did not make the collapse of the USSR and the independence of Ukraine less important.

4. Representatives of enslaved peoples fighting for their rights created the League of Free Nations. They held two forums of free peoples and adopted  the "Declaration on the Decolonization of Russia" , in which they promulgated a plan for further action.

5. Even at the public level, the cooperation of Ukrainians with the national movements of the peoples of the Russian Federation is of great importance for both sides.

The fact that it was in Kiev  that the inauguration of Inyazor  (chief elder) of the Erzya people Syres Bolyaen took place and that Mr. Syres rose to the defense of Ukraine with weapons in his hands, lays a strong foundation for relations between Ukraine and the future Erzya state. By the way, Inyazor's recent appeal to the inhabitants of the Republic of Mordovia was viewed by more than 2 million people on Facebook alone in a week.

6. Much more can be done at the state level. Back in 2019, the Verkhovna Rada, at the initiative of the then chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, Hann Gopko, adopted an appeal to the world community to  condemn violations of the rights of indigenous peoples of the Russian Federation .

Recently, Oleksiy Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, spoke about the need to decolonize Russia and provide the peoples enslaved by Moscow with the opportunity to exercise  the right of self-determination .

It is important that the state policy on this issue should not be limited to statements, but should be of a systemic nature. Ukraine has every opportunity to contribute to the development of national movements by a variety of means - from information support to the formation of national armed units. And some of these steps are already being taken.

7. Ukraine should not only support national movements in the Russian Federation, but also convince Europe and the world of this.

The West must overcome the fear of the collapse of the Russian Empire. The threat to Europe and the world is the continued existence of the Russian Federation, and not its disintegration. Europe and America should not slow down the collapse of the Russian Federation, as they did from the USSR in 1991, but, on the contrary, make this process as manageable and peaceful as possible. And in the fight against the Putin regime, put, first of all, on national and regional movements, and not on the mythical "good Russians."

8. The decolonization of Russia is a key condition for peace and security in Ukraine, and not only in Ukraine. Therefore, the full support of this process is the task of every responsible Ukrainian. This is not about any artificial dismemberment, but about giving freedom to enslaved peoples. And for people living in the open spaces occupied by Moscow, there is an opportunity to break forever with Russian identity and realize their belonging to these free countries and peoples.

9. The prison of nations will collapse. And everyone will benefit from this. And the peoples of Russia who will become free. And the Russians themselves, who will finally be able to take care of their own lives, and not wars of conquest, will condemn Russian imperialism and war criminals and, through repentance, will emerge from international isolation.
