Mr. Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, Chairman of the G20 Summit, September 
5-6, St. Petersburg: info@xxxxxxxxxxxx

Your initiation of the global peace science at the G20 Summit or at the UN 
General Assembly in the autumn of 2013. This science is a Copernican revolution 
of global consciousness as a transition from military to peaceful evolution 
before the threshold of a single global society in the 21st century.

Your initiative will make Russia and St. Petersburg the center of global 
peacemaking in the 21st century and provide you with the Nobel Peace Prize. 
This will be a historic initiative of Russia for our century. With this 
initiative, you have nothing to lose, only to find the greatest common good for 
Russia and the world. The most favorable time to report it is a week before the 
summit so its participants could comprehend the benefits of this science for 
their countries and for the world. It will focus the attention of world leaders 
on the new intellectual task and would lead them away from the constant 
military extinguishing of permanent fire in local conflicts, such as Syria, 
etc. Your initiative will be supported by the majority of countries: China, 
India, Brazil, Italy, South Africa, Argentina, and so on.

Dear Vladimir Vladimirovich!

We, ordinary people, can see how carefully you keep the memory about the 
fallen, those who worked and lived during the Second World War, and what care 
you are taken about survival to the present days for its participants. My 
father, an officer, was killed on the Western border on the first day of the 
war, June 22, 1941, when I was only two days old. My mother and our family, 
like the rest of Russia, drank a full cup of sorrow of war and postwar years, 
which we feel still in our misery. The first toast in Russian families is: 
"That there was no war." This expresses the peace-loving spirit of our people. 
So I have dedicated my conscious life of social philosopher and scientist to 
solve the problem of global peace, excluding war. This is my lifelong debt 
before the fallen father, as well as my children and grandchildren.

In 2005 I created the Global Harmony Association (GHA), whose mission is: 
"Peace from Harmony," seeking global peace without the force of arms. During 8 
years of GHA, by collective efforts of scientists from dozens of countries was 
created, in its first approximation, in "The ABC of Harmony for World 
Peaceā€¦(2012)" the Global Peace Science from social harmony. It forces out 
military science as a science to kill the near and far neighbors from world 
culture. The beginning of this science was put in Russia, in St. Petersburg, 
representing their spiritual property.

Now we see that modern Russia enjoys the world's poorest reputation of the 
country, trusting on the force of their weapons and giving priority not to 
peace but to development of the armed forces and military science. It is very 
sad that Russia has lost and forgotten perhaps the greatest, peacekeeping, 
dignity of the Soviet Union, which was for many decades the world center of 
peacekeeping, peaceful coexistence and the struggle of the Earth peoples for 
peace, despite its ideological limitations. We see the hope for new peace 
initiatives the world puts on U.S., President Obama, who initiated the "nuclear 
zero", dialogue of civilizations and the like, rather than Russia. The world 
considers you, as its President, who is not capable to seize a peace initiative 
and decisive step towards global peace. (See letter of the American scientist 
and writer Bruce Cook to President Obama, which is published here: 

At the G20 Summit, 5-6 September 2013 in St. Petersburg, you, as its Chairman, 
have an historic opportunity to include in the Summit agenda, maybe in staging 
manner for the future, the creation of Global Peace Science through a 
democratic International Contest of scientists from the more than 400 research 
centers in the world under the G20 aegis. You could convince the G20 leaders in 
need of this science and for disarmament, primarily to provide a "nuclear zero" 
proposed by Obama but without peace basics, and for sustainable economic 
growth, free from pressure in military spending, etc. This will give the G20 
Summit the peace dimension that they were lack. If G20 leaders will ignore this 
historic opportunity now, then it will inevitably be used on the following 
Summits or Sessions of the UN General Assembly.

Discussion and vote on this issue at the Summit will show whether governments 
of major countries of the world want to develop global peace science or do they 
remain committed to the war and military science? In any case, such an 
initiative will fundamentally change the international image of Russia with 
militaristic on peacekeeping one and turn Russia into the center of a global 
peace-building that will revive the former tradition to a new level in the new 
century. If you reinforce your initiative in the creation in Russia, in St. 
Petersburg, the International Institute of Global Peace Science (I'm ready to 
head it and find for it the scientists from many countries of the world), you 
will ensure yourself a Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 and will open before Russian 
the perspective of a leader in global peacemaking at the 21st century.

We believe the people of Russia, deeply peaceful in spirit, survivors of many 
wars, see such a historic mission of the current President of Russia in world 
politics and expect it from you today.

its global and national benefits for each country, primarily for its initiator, 
for Russia, is located on the GHA website here:
