Help us Free Mark Fogel: American teacher trapped in Russia

April 25

I am writing to you as a deeply concerned citizen about the plight of Mr. Marc Fogel, an American teacher who has been detained in Russia since August 2021. Mr. Fogel, who was working at the Anglo-American School of Moscow, was sentenced to 14 years in prison on charges of cannabis smuggling, which he maintains was for medical purposes prescribed in the United States. The case of Mr. Fogel is distressing and highlights the urgent need for diplomatic intervention. His situation is reminiscent of other high-profile detentions, and I believe it is imperative that our government takes decisive action to secure his release and ensure his safe return to the United States. I urge you to consider all diplomatic channels and avenues of negotiation to assist Mr. Fogel, who has already spent a significant amount of time in detention under harsh conditions. It is my hope that through your leadership and the concerted efforts of our elected officials, Mr. Fogel’s case will be resolved swiftly and justly. I extend this plea to our esteemed Arizona congressmen, who have the power to influence and advocate for Mr. Fogel’s cause. It is in times like these that we must come together to support our fellow Americans in need, regardless of the geopolitical complexities that may arise. Thank you for your attention to this critical matter. I trust in your commitment to the welfare of all American citizens and look forward to your prompt action regarding Mr. Fogel’s case.
