(SAINT PETERSBURG, RUSSIA) -- Let's me from Russia wish to readers of your newspaper well-being and hapiness. I'm 43 years old and I live in Saint-Petersburg - the former capital of Russia. I'm not married and work as a designer.
I want to know what your readers think about Russia and Russian people. And from myself and from many inhabitans of Saint Petersburg I want to say: "Let's communicate direct". May be you want to interchange by ideas, suggestions; to be friends; to come to us during vacation; to exchange by stamps, coins, phone cards, badges; to find joint business; to meet for friendship and marriage; to get instant information about life in Russian (politicians and events...).
I'd like to receive an answer from readers of your newspaper who is interested in. I'll be glad to meet with single woman who needs approval. Also I'd like to know what your readers think about the following: what intelligentsia of Russia, Sain-Petersburg must do in order to build such democratic state as yours? The matter is the people and the government have nothing in common. Corruption, theft, murders of opponents, total deception of people...
I, as an inhabitant of Russia, can difficult understand why not helping to common people of Russia in building democracy. We ask you to help in restoration democratic administration in Saint-Petersburg. Say how to live in the city where rights of people are violated. Residents of the city live in the beggary but the money which administration of city get from abroad disappear in unknown direction. We, residents of Saint-Petersburg, want you to help us to build the structure of people administration such as in your beautiful country.
And about my hobby. I'd like to gather collection of fire medals and fire metallic badges of different countries. May be somebody among readers of your newspaper have something and want to help me in collecting. I'll send in exchange the collection material from Russia. May be somebody have friends among firemans or can come to the Fire Department (Fire Museum or special shop) in order to inquire about fire medals and fire metallic badges. Fire metallic badges and medals you can send me with your wishes to my address:
