In today’s world what we should not be hearing is a story about another American being held hostage by the Russian government… AGAIN.
But that’s exactly what is going on. This is the story of how an American is being held against his will, in a foreign country, by the Russian government on made up charges. Eric Thomas Creamer from Millfield Ohio graduated from Athens High school in 2005, and went on to Ohio University and graduated in 2010. In school he studied English and Russian. After this he moved to Russia and was employed by MITP as an English teacher…
Simple enough, but also he took on work as a translator, and at some point he translated some documents that appear to have been from the Russian ministry of defense (unknown to him) as part of his job at the time. Soon after translating some documents in 2017 Mr. Creamer was headed home one night. Just prior to getting home he was abducted by the FSB (security police or modern KGB). For hours he was held in custody, was tortured psychologically for hours, had a gun put up to his head demanding answers on why he was…. A spy.
The FSB was convinced that Mr. Creamer was a spy working for the CIA…. Yes we have seen this in the past with many Americans. Finding NO proof of anything, after many hours the FSB informed Mr. Creamer that they had “FOUND” .94 grams of methedrone at 3rd Tverskaya-Yamskaya Street, Moscow… The problem is that that the methedrone was not his, and he did not live at 3rd Tverskaya-Yamskaya Street. Creamer was held till he signed a back page of a form (he was not allowed to see the rest of the form) that stated he was being released. He was told there were no charges pending but he was told to “leave the country, NOW”.
Mr. Creamer did what he was told and got out of the country the next week. Moving ahead, in 2021 after being all over Europe, he went to Georgia for a vacation (he speaks Russian). His girlfriend and himself decided to take a trip to Armenia for the day. As soon as they crossed the border, Mr. Creamer found out that he was barred from leaving Armenia. Armenia is a member of Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO). The CSTO is run by Russia and he found out that Russia had put out a warrant for Creamer on the trumped-up fake charges.
Creamer has been trying to leave Armenia for the last 2 years without any luck. The Armenians don’t want him, the Russians don’t want him, and the US embassy will not help him… He has been begging for help from the US embassy for over 2 years without any response other than a member of the staff “Chris” telling him to get a lawyer. In fact he has found out that no lawyer would touch this case as due to the fact that it’s now political. Mr Creamer has been to the local police, everyone knows him and no one cares, not Armenia, not Russia… not even the Americans.
This is a sad situation where the Russians AGAIN are stating that an American is a spy without any proof, and to cover this up they say “ok not a spy, here is some drugs”. Just like Paul Whelan, Sarah Krivanek, and formally Brittney Griner Russia continues to target Americans without proof for political reasons.
Mr Creamer is asking the Armenian government VIA ambassador Makunts to release him (seek his release) so he can go home to Ohio to be with his 11 year old son and elderly mother that he has not seen in years. Although Armenia is a great country with a lot to offer it is not home. He has committed no crime there and Armenia wants to be seen as moving to the west having a new relationship with the USA, NATO, and EU. Having this public would probably hinder some of that movement west. He is simply asking the government of Armenia to allow him to leave the country just like every other American they hope to have visiting in the coming years without an issue.
The USA has made it a point to help the Armenian people, I can imagine that this is only an oversight by your country that can easily be fixed.
Mr. Creamer is asking his senate members Sherrod Brown (subcommittee on international trade to Armenia) and JD Vance for help, along with his house rep. Troy Balderson (12thdistrict) (Government Oversight & Reform aid to Armenia) for help with this issue. He is formally in writing requesting an official congressional inquiry on how Armenia is receiving NATO and US funding and still holding an American against his will on the orders of the Russian government.
On September 26, 2023 the US gave Armenia 11.5 million for humanitarian aid… it’s strange that a country getting aid from the USA would continue to hold a citizen hostage on behalf of the Russian government As with Ms. Griner, and Mr. Whelan, you can expect a social media, legal, and media campaign to start to have Mr. Creamer freed to leave Armenia soon. He has exhausted all options and wishes not to be forced to do that, but as stated it’s been over 2 years. And although the people and country of Armenia are lovely its time for him to come home.
Please help release Mr. Creamer, this is an unneeded, political issue that can be fixed just by simply allowing him to get on an aircraft back to the USA to people that love and miss him.
UPDATE: Prior to posting this I reached out to relevant members of congress, and the Armenia embassy in the USA requesting that they look into this issue. The Arminian embassy did take my information (military attaché). They did not get back to me for more information in a reasonable amount of time…
