The message reads, in part:
“Over the past years, your highly needed project has gained wide support among public organisations and representatives of volunteer movements, businesses and non-commercial organisations, and has made a significant contribution to addressing such important issues as shaping an accessible environment and creating conditions for creative and professional self-fulfilment for people with disabilities. Abilympics helps active participants improve their skills and find their place in life and work.
I am confident that this year you will also be able to show your strengths, inspire the championship guests with your energy and talent, and gain experience that will help you progress and achieve your goals. And, of course, you will show that Russia is ready to host the 10th Abilympics International Championship in 2021.”
