Dear Madam:

Thank you for mailing the newsletter concerning Russian Falun Gong practitioners to me.

Even though the members of our "Centre" are not Falun Gong practitioners, we would like to express our deep respect for practitioners, who follow the principles of "Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance".

We were overwhelmed with indignation after learning about the crackdown on Falun Gong in China. We would like to express our moral support for practitioners who insist on maintaining their beliefs under unjust suppression.

I hope we can keep in touch in the future.

Director of the Centre
