Greetings to employees of Leo Tolstoy Museum-Estate Yasnaya Polyana

June 10, 2021

Vladimir Putin sent greetings to the staff of the Leo Tolstoy Museum-Estate Yasnaya Polyana on its 100th anniversary.

The message reads, in part:

“At this time of celebration, I would like to deeply thank the museum’s active and retired employees and, of course, the many members of the family of the great Russian writer for their painstaking research and educational work aiming to preserve and popularise Leo Tolstoy’s rich creative legacy. Their constructive and truly selfless work, sincere dedication and commitment to their cause turned the museum into a major world-famous cultural centre and a traditional venue for literary and music festivals, as well as academic and educational forums.

And, of course, Yasnaya Polyana is rightfully renowned for its magnificent garden and park ensemble, remarkably beautiful and inspiring nature, as well as the warm and hospitable welcome that its staff always show their guests.”
