Sullivan Congratulates Russia on Russia Day
June 13, 2020 (EIRNS)—On Russia Day, commemorating the founding the Russian Federation, U.S. Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan issued a congratulatory video statement on the embassy’s twitter account.
“On this the 30th Russia Day we reaffirm our wish to work with the people of Russia to create a more peaceful, prosperous world for all our citizens,” Sullivan said. “On this holiday the United States recalls the democratic aspirations the Russian Federation embraced three decades ago and salutes the Russian people who continue to work toward achieving the universal freedoms enshrined in your Constitution.”
“Our countries have come together at important moments to confront critical challenges as the global community marks the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II. The U.S. honors the shared sacrifice of all those who sought to defeat Nazism and fascism, including the millions of Russian soldiers and citizens who endured enormous suffering and loss of life,”
Highlighting the cooperation of the two nations in bringing an end to Nazi aggression in Europe, Sullivan expressed his hope that “we can strive to do the same now as we collaborate to overcome current global challenges, including the COVID-19 pandemic so that the citizens of all countries may share a healthy, secure and democratic future.”
