On behalf of Transneft I welcome the participants and guests of the Spasskaya Tower International Military Music Festival.
It is held in a challenging environment. All international activities have seen a dramatic decline since the COVID-19 outbreak. The last eighteen months have been really hard for projects in the field of culture.
The organizers of the Spasskaya Tower deserve our highest appreciation for their effort in this situation. They did their best to make the Festival happen last year, though reduced to a shorter TV and Internet video release.
Today, we have a good reason to hope that life is returning to normal, as efficient public health solutions and updated mechanisms of international cooperation come into effect.
Once again, Red Square is ready to receive music bands from different countries. The Spasskaya Tower Military Music Festival is successfully broadcasting its global message of how important mutual understanding and willingness to hear each other are for all nations in today’s world.
I wish the organizers, participants and spectators of the Spasskaya Tower good health, inspiration, optimism and very best impressions.
President of JSC Transneft
