The message reads, in part:
“Your annual festival brings together participants from military colleges, cadet corps and the legendary Suvorov and Nakhimov military schools from across Russia. These establishments take pride in their high educational standards, dedicated military and patriotic training and the creative development of young people. The 10th festival is evidence of all of this. We appreciate the festival organisers’ serious and highly important contribution, as well as their sincere concern for our children and their efforts to instil in our young people unfading spiritual and moral values and respect for Russia’s historical and cultural traditions.”
The 10th Young Talents of Russia National Cadet Festival takes place in Moscow on October 24–25, 2017.
