The telegram reads, in part:
“Your forum has brought to Moscow delegates from 80 different nations. Such wide representation serves as evidence that our countrymen abroad and the entire Russian Diaspora are striving to unite and provide effective support to solving the problems that stand before Russia today. This involves making the Russian language more popular, encouraging an interest in Russian history and culture, and helping Russia maintain its high standing in the world. The Russian World Foundation plays an important role in these matters.
I am certain that the work of this Assembly will give further impetus to bringing you even closer together.”
