I have no words.
I hope you're doing well.
I don't mean to alarm you or frigthen you, but I am seeking asylum in Russia. There is no reason to be frightened of the thought of asylum. Asylum is a legal right. There is no reason to fear the Russians. Many Russians are gentle people and are a lot like Americans in many ways.
If you can spare any money, I would greatly appreciate it. Don't worry--I'm not running off to get on some plane as the result of some spy game or something silly like that. I've thought about this for five years. I'm trying to make an informed decision. That's why I need some money. I need to speak with an attorney, get good rest, be in a comfortable environment where I can control the noise level, choose the media I've exposed to, and so forth.
I know people have different views about money. Some of you might think I'm being crass by asking for money. But lack of money makes people vulnerable and then they are easily victimized..in this country and in other countries. So, money matters. Without money, people's health suffers and they even die...just because they're not rich.
If you can help me, please wire money into my Wells Fargo account. If you can't afford to, that's fine.
Here is the routing number: 051400549. And the account number is 5928598340.
I have also asked the Russian Embassy, via written letter delivered today, to work out an asylum treaty that would provide various conditions regarding my health and I have humbly requested them to request compensation from various entities as they see fit.
All the best. Peace
