Article 33 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation guarantees the citizens of Russia the right to apply personally, as well as to send collective appeals to the authorities. In order for your letter to be accepted and considered, it is worth fulfilling the simple requirements for drawing up an appeal.
Think through any questions or requests you have with the Secretary of Defense. Seek help from a lawyer if your letter is a complaint or petition, or if you are unsure of the correct procedure for contacting an official. If you are writing a standard letter, search the Internet for rules for writing such a letter. Find out the full name of the Minister of Defense and the address to which you will send the letter (find all the necessary information on the Internet or ask to provide it with the authorities).
Learn the basic rules for writing a letter to the secretary of defense. Avoid florid phrases and words with a pronounced expressive connotation, and try to formulate short and clear sentences. Do not paint the letter on several sheets, reduce it to the minimum possible volume and at the same time make sure that the meaning of your appeal is clear, and the letter cannot be perceived in two ways. Do not write veiled phrases, express your thoughts clearly and competently. If you are not sure about the absence of spelling and punctuation errors, be sure to return your letter to a specialist for review.
Divide the text into paragraphs, do not use exclamation marks, the most important parts of the letter can be underlined, italicized or bold. Do not change the color of the text and background. Changing the font and its size is also unacceptable when writing a letter.
Type the text of the letter on the computer and print it. Make sure all words are clearly typed and not smudged. Do not forget to indicate the date of writing the letter, put your signature and decipher it.
Please send a certified notice letter to confirm that the Secretary of Defense has received it. If necessary, enclose a self-addressed envelope in the letter to receive a response to your appeal.
