Russian Compatriots in Malta held their IV Assembly

On April 14, 2019 Ambassador of Russia to Malta Mr. Vladimir Malygin and staff members of the Embassy took part in the IV Open Assembly of Russian Compatriots in Malta. Those gathered discussed the results achieved by the Assembly’s Coordinating Committee and elected its new board members, including Ms. Natalia Camilleri as the Committee’s Chairman.

In his address, Ambassador Malygin underlined that over the years of its existence the Committee has accumulated considerable experience in organizing a number of important social and cultural events. They include the annual Maslenitsa (pancake week) celebrations, New Year events for children and memorial events dedicated to the Victory Day, which include the Immortal Regiment march and St.George’s Ribbon event. He also gave a high assessment of the Committee’s contribution to strengthening the community’s unity, preserving compatriots’ spiritual links with the Motherland and passing on traditional cultural values to the younger generation.

During the meeting, the compatriots’ organisations which were instrumental in putting together the 2019 edition of the Maslenitsa traditional folklore festival received letters of appreciation from the Ambassador.
