This letter was sent to VNIIK on October 14, 2018, and was published by them this week. It is an open letter addressing the plight of the endangered Budenny horses at First Cavalry Army Stud. While many of the elements of the letter were reproduced in this year's annual bulletin, I thought I would share the original source since it is apparently garnering some attention in Russian social media. Please share.
