We urge the President and the Government of the Russian Federation, Russian National Committee of the International Council of Museum (ICOM) and all representatives of public authorities to protect our rights pursuant to the Constitution of the Russian Federation, to prosecute those responsible for the seizure of the non-governmental Museum named after Nicholas Roerich of the International Centre of the Roerichs and for the violation of rights and freedoms of the staff of our non-governmental organization.
