UPDATE December 22, 2022 -
It is once again possible to send mail to Paul N. Whelan via the Department of State. You only need to use a regular US first class stamp. Please send letters and cards only.
The US Embassy in Moscow have been excellent about delivering the mail to Paul. Believe me, they know who 'PNW' is!
Thank you so much; he will be glad to hear news from you!
(If you are not sure what to write about, it is fine to tell Paul what is going on in your locale, any events and happenings, so that he remains up-to-date on life in America and around the world. He is isolated from most real news. The prison has TV, but only Russian state-sponsored programs are allowed. So your regular home life will be of interest to him! Do stay away from politics and controversy due to the censorship these letters will receive before getting to Paul.)

Paul cannot receive email, and has no access to electronic devices. However we have been able to read some of the many messages to him, and compile them on a regular basis to be sent along with his mail to the prison. For longer messages, please consider writing to the address above.
Thank you! - the Whelan family
