How You Can Help Max Solopov and Alexei Gaskarov

In our previous post, we relayed the international call made by the Campaign for the Release of the Khimki Hostages to put pressure on the Russian authorities to release Maxim Solopov and Alexei Gaskarov, who were arrested on July 29 for their alleged involvement in a demonstration outside the Khimki town administration building. Although there is no evidence that they were involved in this “unsanctioned” demonstration, they have been in police custody since then.

One way you can help them is to send letters to Russian law enforcement officials. At the following addresses, you will find sample letters addressed to the Russian prosecutor general, the prosecutor of the Moscow Region, and the Interior Minister.

In English, to the Prosecutor General (Yuri Chayka):

The contents of the sample letters are identical. You should feel free to edit the letters before sending them and adding your own thoughts and arguments. This is particularly advisable in the case of the Interior Ministry, whose site claims that they do not give official replies to copies of electronic appeals sent previously.

You can send the letters via the Web:

Russian Prosecutor General’s Office:

You should press the left button under the text of the rules (Согласен)  and the window for sending a letter will open.
