Greetings to participants, organisers and fans of 2021 Russia-Mongolia International Silk Way Rally

June 30, 2021

Vladimir Putin sent a message of greetings to the participants, organisers and fans of the 2021 Russia-Mongolia International Silk WayRally, which started in Omsk and gathered a large number of motor sport professionals and amateurs from Russia and foreign countries.

The message reads, in part:

“You have an exciting and captivating competition programme ahead of you which will include stages of the Fédération Internationale de l'​Automobile (FIA) World Cup and the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) Cross-Country Rallies championship. The teams are to follow a highly challenging route across Russia and Mongolia through steppes and deserts, road-free taiga and mountains. Mutual help, the strength of character and top skills are particularly important under such extreme conditions.

I believe that the current competition will be full of excitement and the flare of fair and beautiful racing, which will leave a lasting mark in the memory of both the competitors and fans. And of course, on the centenary of diplomatic relations between Russia and Mongolia, they will make a considerable contribution to the development of multifaceted constructive cooperation between our nations and peoples.”
