The representatives of NGOs from different countries hereby call on the delegates of the countries participating in the 87th session of the General Assembly of INTERPOL to prevent the election of a representative of the Russian Federation Oleksandr Prokopchuk to the post of President of INTERPOL and to take all necessary measures to prevent the use of this reputable organization, in violation of Art. 3 Constitution of INTERPOL, for prosecuting people within the framework of fabricated and politically motivated cases. It is important that the engagement of INTERPOL with Russia and other authoritarian regimes need to be ceased immediately. If the situation does not change now, it can become a serious challenge to humanity, which will entail a significant number of victims.
