[At-Large] Ukraine, .RU, and internet governance

EURALO communique on Ukraine was written by EURALO Board without invitation
of representatives of two Ukrainian ALSes. This is absolutely ruzzist
approach - try to solve the Ukrainian issue without the participation of
Ukrainians. Do other members of At-Large community support such approach?
Who has said "that At-Large unites people from all over the world by common
work to present and protect the end users interests"?

And once again and again - please, refocus your discussion from Ukraine
(our heroes do protect our cyberspace, and we really have a lot of support)
to the protection of "One World. One Internet"
