Welcoming remarks by Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the UN Mr. Vassily Nebenzia at the concert of the «UN Music Chamber Society» on the occasion of the UN Russian Language Day
Please accept my cordial congratulations on the Day of the Russian Language – one of the 6 official languages of the United Nations!
On 6 June, birthday of an outstanding Russian poet Alexander Pushkin, the entire world praises the beauty and abundance of the Russian language.
Russian is the language of a great culture that brings together people and communities across the globe and, of course, at the United Nations.
This day also means a lot in terms of promoting multilingualism at the UN platform.
We would like to thank the “UN Music Chamber Society” for organizing a concert on the occasion of the UN Russian Language Day.
Musicians from all over the world will take part in this online event and perform pieces written by Russian composers.
All of this underscores the international recognition of our culture, which rests upon the “great and mighty” Russian language as one of its key pillars.
Our wishes of creative success go to all participants of this event.
We also hope the concert will bring wonderful experience to the audience. Enjoy!
