The telegramme of President of the Russian Federation
The President of the Russian Federation
Moscow, 1905 Goda Street, 10 A, to the President of Russian Committee of Deaf Sports V.N. Rukhledev, Participants of XXI Summer Deaflympics =
I welcome you on the threshold of opening of XXI Taipei Summer Deaflympics and I wish successful starts.
Throughout several decades these large international competitions collect the strongest athletes from many countries of the world. Their noble mission is to open huge spiritual and physical potential of people with the limited possibilities, to help them, despite of circumstances, to show the abilities and strength of mind.
Our athletes always adequately protected honour of the country on Deaflympics. Thanks to skill, persistence and personal courage they achieved the good results. I am assured that you will increase these victorious traditions, will justify hopes of Russians which support you and trust in your forces.
Good luck to you and all the kindest.
