Welcome address of the President of JSC Transneft

On behalf of Transneft’s team I welcome the organizers, participants and spectators of the Spasskaya Tower 2017 International Military Music Festival.

This year the Festival is celebrating its 10th anniversary. These have been years of remarkable accomplishment. The Spasskaya Tower has acquired a prominent status on the national and international levels alike. Its program has been growing more and more diverse, attracting a greater audience and discovering new formats of interacting with the spectators.

The Spasskaya Tower’s contribution into the fostering of intercultural dialogue deserves high acknowledgement. Symbolically, this dialogue is spoken in the language of military music, a convincing evidence that there is a plethora of opportunities and ways to bring cultures into contact, yet the result depends on good will and dedicated effort.

I cordially wish inspiration and success to all the participants, together with my wishes of unforgettable impressions to the guests of this spectacular event unfolding beneath the Kremlin walls.

President of JSC Transneft
Nikolay Tokarev
