Dear President Zelensky,

You must be feeling just a bit squeezed these days between the threat of Russian invasion and the extortion of the American so-called pResident who is demanding that you assist in internal American election politics. It sounds like a frightening place to be, but may I offer a suggestion on how to get out of the worst of it?

Release the recording of the phone call you undoubtedly made and possess. There are several ways to do it:

1. Brash & Bold method: Call a news conference, announce that you are going to release it, and tell the world the website where they can download their own copy.

2. Sneaky But Safer method: Send a recording of it in a diplomatic bag to your embassies in the UK, the US, Canada, France, Germany, and/or Australia. Any of these countries would be good places.

Then, once your embassies have their copies, have them pass them along to major news outlets in their respective countries. TV and newspapers will jump for the opportunity to run the conversation(s) in their entirety.

Yes, this would be a bit scary. Releasing the recordings would go a long way toward getting rid of the difficult and frankly criminal US president who put you in this situation, but it would weaken Putin at the same time. Western public sentiment is with you. This is your time to strike a blow against the criminal syndicates trying to dominate you. This is your time to stand tall, brave, and strong.

A concerned American citizen who doesn't like what's going on
