Human Rights First has been working hard to disrupt the supply chain from Syria’s largest source of weaponry, Russian state arms dealer Rosoboronexport. We collected thousands of petition signatures and took to Twitter to urge the Department of Defense to cancel a U.S. contract with Rosoboronexport. We’ve also rallied a bipartisan group of 17 U.S. Senators to support this charge.
Our message is clear: We will not stand for Rosoboronexport’s enabling of Syrian atrocities, and neither should our government.
