To the attention of President Vladimir Putin,
Please accept the greetings of an imprisoned cleric,
I am a cleric who has been in prison for eight years. I have never been granted a single day of furlough, prohibited from receiving any medical treatment and have been barred from having any proper legal representation; and at present, due to my ever worsening ailments, I am near death. I am guilty of nothing other than offering the love of the divine and I have committed no crime other than defending the freedom of though and speech.
