The letter stated: "There are various branches of foreign religious and charitable organizations within the territory of Russia whose activities do not formally violate the provisions of Russian legislation but quite often promote the growth of tension in society."

The letter grouped Jehovah's Witnesses with the Unification Church, the Church of Scientology, "various eastern faiths," and Satanism, referring to them collectively as "branches that frequently carry out activities that damage the moral, mental, and physical health of their members."
