Russian edition of a Maltese writer’s book presented at President’s Palace

 

          On January 21, 2018, H.E. President of Malta Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca hosted at San Anton Presidential Palace a presentation of the Russian edition of a book by a famous Maltese writer Trevor Zahra called “Challenges”, published by the “Fiction Literature” publishing house. The book was translated into Russian by a Russian compatriot living in Malta linguist Ms. Yana Psaila and was published owing to financial assistance on the part of the Honorary Representative of the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Malta Ms. Anastasia Budykho.

          Addressing the audience, the President of Malta and Ambassador of Russia to Malta Mr. Vladimir Malygin both noted the important contribution of such projects in the sphere of cultural diplomacy into promotion of bilateral ties, and expressed hope that more literature in the Russian and Maltese languages will be translated and published in both countries in the future.

          The presentation was attended by a President Emeritus of Malta, prominent representatives of political, social, business, cultural and scientific circles of Malta, as well as members of the Russian community.
