Thanks everyone for the calm comments.

I think over the past week we have learned that we are not (yet) at
a point where the project would issue such a statement, therefore
I'm not going to drag this out further and am going to close this
topic by withdrawing my proposal.

Regarding Philip's comments about typos: I'm sorry, it's hard
to notice without a spell checker. I now enabled spell checking
in vim. In the same note, I want to apologize for the "the" in
the subject, it's my understanding we should refer to "Ukraine"
and not "the Ukraine", and the text did so, but I missed fixing
this in the subject.

Regarding the Russian law: It's a scare-mongering tactic, don't
give in to it. There is no rule of law in Russia anyway, it's just
a scam.
