His Excellency Mr Grigory Logvinov
Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary,

Your Excellency,
May Gayaburra Goopi [God] protect you. Today, I woke up to the sad news of the passing of Vitaly
Churkin, the Russian Federation’s permanent representative to the United Nations.
During the early stages of establishing the Yidindji Government, I had written a number of articles
to Vitaly Churkin to bring to attention to the Russian Federation certain actions of the government
of the Commonwealth of Australia on the Yidindji territory.
Your Excellency, Vitaly Churkin is part of the Yidindji story, we will not forget. May the
relationship between the Sovereign Yidindji Government and the Russian Federation long continue.
Please accept our deepest & most sincere condolences and convey them to the Churkin family, the
President Vladimir Putin and the diplomatic corps under your leadership.
In good faith and in peace,

Murrumu of Walubara
Foreign Affairs & Trade Minister

Dear Friends

My family was deeply saddened with a news of death of Mr.Vitaly Churkin.
Your country and his family should be very proud to have a man, politician and diplomat like him.
I watched him while he was talking in UN, on news conferences.
He was the best example how one diplomat should work and how much he loved and fight for his country and for all other small countries who were not strong like now your Russia.
(I came as a refugee from former Yugoslavia and know what that means when you have someone like Mr Churkin to fight for you).
I cried this morning when saw the news on RT.
Be proud of him and his achievements.
I know Russia has many other good diplomats but he was unique.
Our condolences to his family and all Russians
