On 24th of August, 2019 in Sukhumi, two public international organizations signed a significant agreement: the Public organization “League of Friends of Abkhazia” and the International Association “Friends of Crimea”. Jan Charnogursky, Chairman of the coordinating Council of Friends of Crimea and Astamur Logua, Head of the League of Friends of Abkhazia, signed the indenture.
The signing of the agreement was attended by: Permanent Representative of the Republic of Crimea to the President of the Russian Federation Georgy Muradov, Director of business and cultural center of the Republic of Crimea Yaroslav Ivanchenko, Chairman of the coordination Council Jan Charnogursky and the member of the coordination Council Ge Zhili.
It is mentioned in the agreement, the International Association “Friends of Crimea” and “League of Friends of Abkhazia” will promote the expansion of trade, economic, cultural and humanitarian relations between Abkhazia and Crimea.
Commenting on the agreement, the permanent representative of the Republic of Crimea under the President of the Russian Federation Georgy Muradov emphasized that the goals of the two organizations are simple: to promote trade, economic, cultural and humanitarian cooperation, helping our people to strengthen relations in all areas and spheres of activity.
"Secondly, a very important goal is to convey to the world truthful and objective information about the development of our countries. The lack of information contributes to the fact that various unfriendly circles of Russia and Abkhazia continue their information and political aggression against us. Therefore, by strengthening the cooperation of our friends from different countries, we are strengthening the position of our countries in the world," Mr. Muradov said.
Further, the Chairman of the coordination Council Jan Charnogursky noted that despite the political and economic pressure, primarily from Western countries, the Republic of Crimea, as well as the Republic of Abkhazia, are successfully developing. The former Prime Minister of Slovakia attributes this positive trend to the fact that both republics are on the path of restoring historical justice.
