To the participants, organizers and guests of the 2022 Spasskaya Tower International Military Music Festival
I welcome you to the opening of the fifteenth anniversary run of the Spasskaya Tower International Military Music Festival.
Over the past years, your grand artistic forum has rightfully gained immense popularity. As a matter of good tradition, the Spasskaya Tower Festival brings together military musicians, famous performers, choral, choreographic, and folklore groups from Russia and all over the world on Red Square and other concert venues in Moscow. It introduces the audience to the national symbols and solemn military ceremonies of the participating states. And of course, I would like to emphasize that the extensive charitable program of the Festival is aimed at supporting the families of military personnel involved in the special military operation.
I am sure that the Spasskaya Tower Festival will be carried on at the highest level, arouse a vast public interest and contribute to the strengthening of friendship and mutual understanding between people.
I sincerely wish you success and a cheerful mood.
President of the Russian Federation
