The congratulation states, in particular:
“Dear Vladimir Vladimirovich!
Please accept my sincere congratulations on the occasion of the national holiday – the Russia Day.
This day is truly a starting point of the new Russian statehood that went through a difficult and heroic period of its formation and development. The people of Russia are rightfully proud of their Homeland and look into the future with confidence.
It is a joy to remark that Abkhazian-Russian relations are based on the friendship of the Abkhazian and Russian people. These relations develop successfully in the spirit of allied cooperation. We will continue to make every effort to strengthen comprehensive cooperation between our states for the sake of the prosperity of our citizens.
On this wonderful day, please allow me to wish you, dear Vladimir Vladimirovich, strong health and further successes in your responsible state activity and to all people of Russia – peace, well-being and prosperity”.
