Andre Bulatov reached out, looking for help with his situation. I am doing the same. I want to help him tell his story and I ask that others out there will do the same and help share this. I am reaching out for help in writing this article. What I am presenting is what was told to me through letters from Andre Bulatov and Mikhail Bulatov. Not all the details are currently available, but we will look at what Andre had to say about his situation. His first messages reflected his pain and fear for the lives of himself and his loved ones. Some details provided seem to find support in a leaked Wikileaks cable. Troubles increased for them after 9/11 with the changes in immigration in the United States.
Andre migrated to the United States with his mother in 1995 when he was 11 years old seeking asylum. He and his family have been fighting to get a green card and citizenship since then. They face more violence, corruption and death in Kazakhstan. Andre states that he and his family does not care about all they lost in Kazakhstan as long as they can stay in the United States.
