Dear Mr. Pakhomov,
Dear Embassador,

It has come to our attention that during your recent speech regarding the preparations for the Winter Olympics 2014 you have clearly stated that it would be in the city's best interest to simply exterminate the stray animal population of abandonned dogs and cats..

We also understand that there has been  prize money issued for every dead stray animal, of 800 roebels.

We strongly disagree with this primitive, cruel and barbaric method of dealing with the stray animal population and would like to urge you to rethink your position in this matter.

The money that you are offering for each killed animal should be spent on sterilization clinics for animals and/or homeless shelters for the innocent dogs and cats left on the streets by indifferent Russian citizens. Neutering can be done by many organizations, for example 4 PAWS. They are very succesfull in Eastern Europe, also in the Ukrain, where the mentality is comparable with that in Russia.

Do NOT let this massacre take place! This city and the entire nation will portrait itself as medieval, heartless, cruel and evil.

There is an ENTIRE year to deal with a 'stray animals' problem (which is NO problem at all to western people) in a decent, civilized way,  which everybody will respect. It will probably even save the community money.

Killing abandonned pets is the first step to killing people, this has been proven too often already.

Please be careful with stimulating a murderous attitude, because that is what this would be.

We encourage you to reconsider your decision and to become engaged in HUMANE plans, neutering and/or adoptionprograms through no-kill shelters, with the help of organizations like 4 Paws, who are specialized in this. They will be happy to assist you! 

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely:
