The speech of the President of the Republic of Abkhazia Raul Khadzhimba at the reception, dedicated to the Day of Russia.

Dear Semen Viacheslavovich!
Dear friends!

Today Russian nation and all friends of Russian Federation are celebrating an important state celebration – Day of Russia.

It is 25 years since the day of adoption of the Declaration on the state sovereignty of RSFSR. A long way of strengthening and development of Russian statehood, consolidation of the country, rallying of the multinational people of Russia has been passed.

Russian Federation today is a strong and economically developed state that plays a significant role in international politics and acts as a valuable ally and responsible partner for a lot of states, including Abkhazia.

Today I would like to recall the words of the First President of the Republic of Abkhazia Vladislav Grigorievich Ardzynba: “Abkhazia is a natural ally of Russia”.

Our nations and states are tied not only by friendly and allied relations. 

We are also bound with thousands of social and cultural ties, united by personal and professional ties.

We are united by knowledge of great Russian language – an asset of the whole mankind.

We are bound by sincere and kind attitude towards each other, respect to our shared history and our tendency to happy, stable and flourishing future of our friendly peoples.

Today I have addressed a congratulatory letter to the President of Russian Federation Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, a Leader, a man, who did everything so that the people of Russia and friends of Russia would feel pride for their Great country and confidence in the future.

Abkhaz-Russian relations based on broad treaty and legal base are dynamically developing.

The provisions of Abkhaz-Russian Agreement on alliance and strategic partnership are systematically implemented; the activities on activation of different directions of our cooperation are conducted.

Our task is to comply with the high standards of intergovernmental interaction, be more professional and effective as a partner of Russia.

We have to wisely and efficiently use generous financial assistance of Russian Federation, directing it at economic development, creation of the real sector of economy, necessary infrastructure projects and institutional changes – so that Abkhazia would gain firm foothold.

This kind of Abkhazia – with productive, not dotational economy, with understandable clear-cut rules of game, secure and attractive for investment, with modernized resorts, with respect to cultural differences, open to mutually beneficial cooperation – can act as a full-scale, trustworthy and effective partner of Russian Federation in a difficult Caucasus region.

I am sure that we, together with the Great Russia, will build flourishing Abkhazia.

Allow me to congratulate everyone present with this wonderful holiday- the Day of Russia. I wish brother nations of Russia and Abkhazia peace, kindness and prosperity.
