Ravil Mingazov was born in Russia in 1967. He became a ballet dancer with several dance troupes. Conscripted into the Russian Army at the age of 19, he first served in the Army ballet troupe. After his conscription ended in 1988, he served voluntarily until 1996 and later returned to the military in the food supply section, where he took over a program that was in bad shape and transformed it into a model program, “the best in all the Army's.” In recognition of his achievement, he said that the General gave him a watch.

Your gift will help No More Guantánamos build a nationwide grassroots coalition and provide them with technical support and resources with which to educate their communities about the men imprisoned at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba; Bagram, Afghanistan; and secret offshore prisons around the world.  We help local chapters to engage their communities in a constructive dialogue about the issues and obstacles involved in closing Guantánamo Bay prison with justice.
