Greetings on 5th International Boxing Day

August 27, 2021

Vladimir Putin greeted the Russian boxing community on the 5th International Boxing Day. The celebrations are held online this year.

The message reads, in part:

“This spectacular and fascinating type of martial arts enjoys well-deserved popularity in Russia. It demands endurance and immaculate training of course, but also fosters strong will, hardens one’s character and teaches us to always move ahead and to win.

I am sure that both professionals and sports fans will enjoy the rich and exciting Boxing Day programme, which will promote physical fitness and a healthy lifestyle.”
