Letter 1

John! I am in Moscow!
I cannot get registration and the sanction in anti-immigration committee. I have been informed that according to the law for Citizens of Russia who leave our country with visa without residence permit, if I go to your country I am obliged to have cash as confirmation that I possess monetary resources. I can't receive sanction to get registration at the airport. I am obliged to show them at least 500 euro. If I have at least 500 euro I will receive registration and the sanction of anti-immigration committee. The law obliges me to have money as confirmation, that in your country I will have money resources for existence and livelihoods during that time which I will spend there. I should show 500 euro. If I will show money, I will receive confirmation that I possess monetary resources and I will get the official sanction to leave my country with the visa.
Nobody informed me that I should have cash. These rules entered recently and I couldn't know about it. Many people faced with such problem. The customs officer told me that it is American sanctions against Russia. Payment systems Visa and Master Card blocked payments from russian credits cards and many Russian tourists in the different countries couldn't receive money for livelihood and for a meal.
Therefore they demand that all leaving Russia should have cash.
Otherwise they have no right to let me go to your country. Please, as soon as possible send me 500 euro. I will show this money and I will receive the sanction. This money are necessary for me only to show at anti-immigration committee. I will give you this money right at the airport. I should not pay anything. I simply should show money and then I can leave customs house. Please, send me money as soon as possible because I have no money. Please, use system of Money Gram because here, at the airport, there is a agent Money Gram and I can receive your money. All you need is my name and the city - Moscow, Russia!
Please do not forget to write to me Reference Number when you send your help.
John, my nerves on a limit. I got the formal notice, according to which I should have money to leave my country according to the law.
I cannot write much because I use the Internet - cafe. Here only three computers and so many people. I should spend night in Moscow in a waiting room. It is much more terrible than I thought. Tomorrow I again will use Internet - cafe to receive your letter. I cannot be in Moscow for a long time, because I have no money for a meal and a for the night lodging.
I only have slightly of meal that I took at home for my trip in a train.
I should receive the sanction of anti-immigration committee as soon as possible because I cannot be in Moscow for a long time.
I am nervous very much. With love.
Olga Zhilyaeva
