My name is Eduard Mikhailovich Kazakin.
I’m 51 years old. I was born in Donetsk, Ukraine.
I’m writing this letter on behalf of all my family including my spouse Nina, my son Michael, his spouse Oksana and their two daughters Anna (7 years) and Victoria (2 years), our daughter Olga and her husband Andrew, and their children Artem (6 years) and Lillia
All of us were born and raised in Donetsk.
We studied and grew up in Donetsk. Studied,
worked, raised our kids and grandkids. Probably
you already know Donetsk became one
of the centers of military activities. It became
dangerous for your life to stay there. We became
witnesses how industrial and cultural
areas of the city are being destroyed and how
peaceful citizen of the city die. We all are
hoping for the end of this
unannounced brother killing
war. But even now it is
obvious that to restore the
region it will take years and
may be even decades.
In this situation we can
see only one solution for
ourselves, our kids and
grandkids: repatriation to the historical motherland,
to the country of Israel.
On behalf of all the members of our family,
let me express sincere thankfulness to you and
your assistants for the given organizational
and financial support for our family during the time of preparation and directly with repatriation:
we were given nice housing in the suburbs
of Kiev, organized food during our stay
in Kiev, organized transportation to the railway
station in Kiev, consulate appointment, we
were given a financial help, moral (sic) help and
As a result, our son Michael with his family
is in Israel in the Karmiel city from August 3rd.
My daughter and her family successfully went
through the consulate appointments and received
a right to repatriate. We should leave
on September 21, 2014.
Let me show my gratitude one more time
for the attention from every area for every
member of our family in such a difficult period
of life for us. I wish you and your team health,
peaceful heavens and happiness.
With all respect,
