Welcoming speech of the Mayor of Lemesos, Mr Andreas Christou, at the second Cypriot - Russian Festival, in co-operation with the Russian Embassy, at the sea front, on the 2nd and 3rd of June 2007
It is with great pleasure that Lemesos Municipality has accepted the proposal of the Embassy of Russia for co-organizing the second Cypriot - Russian Festival, titled "Cyprus - Russia: Traditions of mutual trust".
On behalf of Lemesos Municipality I express my sincere congratulations and wishes to all who have worked for the organization of this event, which aims to our common cultural and cross - family relations.
Our Municipality applause the organization of such events, which contribute to the information of its citizens about the Russian culture and from these events to get to know the Russian traditions and the customs of the Russian people.
With these thoughts I wish every success to the festival.
