Greetings to participants and guests of the 12th Russian National Summer Rural Games in Kursk

August 3, 2018

Vladimir Putin sent a message of greetings to the participants and guests of the 12th Russian National Summer Rural Games in Kursk, dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Kursk, one of the biggest and most crucial battles of the Great Patriotic War.

The message reads, in part:

“It is pleasing that the Games are gaining popularity with each new year, opening the door for young talent, inspiring thousands of rural residents to take up sport and active leisure, and contributing to solving current social problems in rural areas in general. The brilliant and captivating competitions are always a significant event in the athletic life of the nation and the host region. And it is certainly a true holiday for all those attending.

I am confident that the tournaments will let the participants showcase their skills, expand their social circles and find like-minded people, and also will leave them with the most pleasant, unforgettable memories.”
