October 8, 2018

Vladimir Putin sent greetings to the participants, guests and organisers of a special event celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Nation’s Health League national public organisation.

The message reads, in part:

“In these 15 years, the League has grown into a large and respected public organisation that has united likeminded people in many regions of Russia around its noble goals. It continues to work tirelessly to promote advancements in medical science and the values of physical fitness and an active lifestyle.

The programmes that you implement are very important for increasing longevity, improving the country’s demographics and tackling important environmental challenges.

You have my deep and sincere appreciation for all your truly selfless work and commitment to a common cause.“

The Nation’s Health League was established in 2003. Its current president is heart surgeon Leo Bokeria. With branches in 65 regions of the country, the League works to advance Russian healthcare, promote sports and fitness, protect the environment, advocate a healthy lifestyle and cultivate the best in today’s youth.
