Wish Crimean Political Prisoner Sasha Kolchenko Happy Birthday!


It is Oleksandr Kolchenko’s BIRTHDAY on Nov 26.  It is bleak spending your birthday in Russian captivity facing a monstrous sentence on trumped up charges.  Please send him birthday greetings (and sign the petition demanding his release!). 

The following birthday wishes would be fine. 

С днём рождения!  Желаю Вам крепкого здоровья, мужества и счастья.  Надеюсь на скорое освобождение.   

(Happy Birthday!  Wishing you health, courage and happiness, and that you will soon be released.)

Oleksandr Kolchenko 

344082, г. Ростов-на-Дону, ая 2710,      

Кольченко Александру Александровичу (1989 г.р.)

LETTERS to all three men are much needed!  Messages in Russian are most likely to get through, though short messages in simple English may also.  Even if they do not, they will still help by demonstrating to the prison administration in Gennady Afanasyev’s case, and to the Russian authorities, that the men are not forgotten and that Russia’s treatment of them is under scrutiny.

Gennady Afanasyev

Афанасьеву, Геннадию Сергеевичу (1990 г.)

Сенцову Олегу Геннадьевичу (1976 г.р.)

The addresses can be copy-pasted) – the numbers in brackets are each man’s year of birth, which is required for getting letters through:
