The message reads, in part:
“Over the years, your organisation has accumulated significant experience, gained prestige and proven its willingness to engage in constructive, fruitful dialogue with state and civil society institutions to resolve high-priority, significant problems.
First and foremost, I want to note your enormous input into implementing useful initiatives aimed at improving Russia’s demographic situation, strengthening the institution of family and traditional family values, supporting motherhood and childhood, and educating the younger generation. Naturally, issues of women’s personal and professional self-realisation in the modern world are also at the centre of your attention.
I stress that the state will continue supporting active participation by women and women’s organisations in Russia’s public, political, business and cultural life.”
