The message reads, in part:
“Since its inception, the All-Russian Society of People with Disabilities has conducted large-scale and meaningful work aimed at addressing topical matters of rehabilitating people with limited abilities, ensuring their social adaptation and protecting their rights and interests. You work to create worthy living conditions for people with disabilities, ensure their career guidance and provide them with jobs. You help them to engage in creative work, in sport, and are actively involved in improving the relevant legislation. And, of course, I would like to note the society’s substantial contribution to implementing the Accessible Environment state programme. This extremely important work is in high demand and has rightly won your organisation prestige and acclaim.
I am confident that this congress will be highly beneficial, and that its delegates will be able to exchange experience and best practices and set goals for the future.”
