THE STORY:

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen!

Please help me! I am desperate and do not know what to do.

I some years am in fear for my life and for the life of my teenage son.

My name is Vladimir Kalinin.

I'm 53 years old, I'm Christian, I have higher education. I live in a city of Novosibirsk, Russia.

I'm a lone father, there are 2 people in our family, my son Alexander, who's 16 years old, and I. I've raised him alone, he doesn't have a mother or other close relatives.

It's not easy writing about this, I thought if I'm doing the right thing for some time, but this situation, in which our small family ended up, does not have any other choice.

My problems start in 2007. During this period, I started in opposition to the ruling regime of corruption, which is now in Russia. Because of this, I've lost my job, health and hopes for the future of my son. All my attempts at finding a job did not have any result. I ended up being an alien in my own country.

In 2013, I turned to US immigration authorities, with a request to grant me a political asylum. I was expecting invitation for an interview almost 2 years, but something unexpected happened, my case was lost in the immigration department. In 2015, I had to leave the United States. I have documents to serve as evidence to everything I wrote.  The failures continue to haunt me to this day.

I don't have a job, or any other sources of income, we have lost our home. Today we live with our acquaintances, but we're going to have to leave at some point. In Russia, there is no state aid for the people, that are in trouble, because of the political position. In Russia today, people like me, every day experiencing the repression and suffering.

I ask you to help us, if you can. I am in despair and fear for me, and my son.

If you can help us get out of this hell, you can still help my son Alexander.

He is an intelligent boy, speaks English and very keen continue their studies. But now we are homeless and now my son has no possibility to study at school. Now we are strangers in the homeland, and we want to leave Russia forever. We want to find a new home in any democratic and safest country.

But in this way a lot of obstacles. In world has many of kindness and we could be useful for society.

I want to continue to work and I can do different work. I can be useful to the society and the state which can shelter the us. My son will be also very grateful; he will be able to complete school education.

Excuse me for this letter to despair.

Thank you!

God bless you!

I am, Sincerely Yours Vladimir Kalinin.

P.S. I wrote more than 60 letters to all the organizations of human rights. I did not get back neither one message that my letter was received. Please I ask you to, if you are reading this letter, but you have no opportunity to help me, just let me know my messages are finding the destination or not.

P.S.

This is a letter I wrote to the head office UNHCR being in a state hopeless situation.

“Hello!
My name is Vladimir Kalinin. I'm 53 years old, I'm Christian, I have higher education. I live in a
city of Novosibirsk, Russia.
I'm a lone father, there are 2 people in our family, my son Alexander, who's 16 years old, and I. I've raised him alone, he doesn't have a mother or other close relatives.
My problems start in 2007. During this period, I started opposing the corrupt ruling regime of in Russia. Because of this, I've lost my job, health and hopes for the future of my son. All my attempts at finding
a job did not have any result. I ended up being an alien in my own country.
I have already written a lot letters, about 60. I wrote to the UNCHR too, in various charity and humanitarian organizations, but I did not received an answer from anyone. My situation today is very bad. I'm with my son, I don't have a home, I do not have the opportunity to work, because I was put into the database, into which were added all those who oppose Putin's criminal regime.
I understand that today there is a humanitarian problem in Syria, and some African countries.

I am sympathetic to a large number of refugees from those countries. But my situation is also very hard, my son and I are forced to survive in terrible circumstances.
Believe me, but living on the street in Africa and living on the street with a child in Siberia, is very different. Not many people know how life works in the Russian hinterland. Daily we are faced with oppressive rule and abuse, but no one tries to help us. There are many humanitarian organizations in the world, which exist to help the people of different nationalities which are in a very difficult life situation.
These organizations and foundations advertise themselves as charities and have huge budgets. But these organizations can't respond to a single letter from a man who found himself in trouble.
I wrote to the UNCHR, sent several emails to different departments, but I only received one answer, which said: "Unfortunately, we cannot help you because we do not have such an opportunity."
I don't for money or food or housing from your organization. I turned for help to the UNCHR because it is the world's largest organization dedicated to the protection of people around the world. I wanted to
get legal help and protection. But everywhere I got either refused, or no one even answered. Today I know that I can ask for salvation only from God!
I'm asking you, if you read this letter and you can't answer, please just let me know that my letter reached its. I sometimes think that my letters are blocked in Russia.
Various charity and humanitarian organizations can save the fate of the people, but they can also ignore the prayer of salvation. But we should not forget that above all, we have God!
God bless you!
Thank you!
Sincerely”
