President Raul Khadzhimba congratulated the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin on the Russia Day.
The congratulatory telegram states, in particular:
Thanks to your outstanding work as a statesman, dear Vladimir Vladimirovich, the greatness of the Russian state was reborn. The people of Russia are united, confident in the future and proud of the past and the present of their state.
This day is also celebrated by the citizens of Russia in foreign states. It is also significant for those states that have the honour of being partners and allies of Russia. We highly value the relations of cooperation and strategic partnership that actively develop between our states.
I hope that cooperation between our states will continue to grow stronger and that we will continue to have regular contacts and interact at all levels.
