Dear Honorable Mr. Yadmaa Ariunbold, Mr. Paul Lemay,
We are writing on behalf of the Russian Canadian Democratic Alliance and activists to express our sincere and deepest gratitude to the Mongolian Government, and to the People of Mongolia for extending hospitality to the citizens of the Russian Federation.
In the darkest hours of Russian history when for seven horrible months, the government of Russia is waging an unprovoked war with Ukraine, an independent, sovereign country, you agreed to help the citizens of the Russian Federation who refused to support the regime and commit war crimes by joining the military forces attending the conflict zone. The military draft has disproportionately targeted ethnic minorities. By accepting those fleeing from Russia, you are not only saving the lives of the Indigenous Peoples of the Russian Federation but also preventing further genocide of Ukrainian citizens.
The People of Mongolia have demonstrated the highest kindness, generosity and commitment to human rights and freedom. There are not enough words to express our gratitude to the government and the People of Mongolia for this noble act.
