The annual festival of Slavic people held
at the Monument of Friendship situated at the
border of three states - Russia, Ukraine and Byelorussia
- gathers a great number of people. During the
last decade this festival has reached even greater
range. Not only the representatives of neighbouring
districts and regions, but also VIP-guests from
the capitals come to this Monument.
On the 27th of June , 2004, the Presidents of
three Slavic States - Vladimir Putin, Leonid Kuchma
and Alexander Lukashenko - assembled at the Monument.
Yu.S.Gorodnichy - the General director of JSC
"Dyatkovo Crystal" - together with the
Governor of Bryansk region gave the Presidents
a hearty welcome.
Vladimir Putin has presented A.G.Lukashenko and
L.M.Kuchma with the vases with festival symbols
on them as a souvenir from Russia.
The Governor of Bryansk region presented V.V.Putin
with the vase on behalf of our region and workers
of Dyatkovo crystal factory. VIP-guests gave a
fair hearing to excursus into history of the Maltsovs'
Republic. Moreover, they were much interested
observing the displays of exhibition.
The President of Russia V.V.Putin wished our factory
good luck and success. Yu.S.Gorodnichy called
the President's attention to the unique crystal
iconostasis of Dyatkovo temple "Unsieged
Kupina" and invited the Head of Russia to
visit this memorial temple and our town. Vladimir
Putin accepted his offer, having promised to include
it into his intensive timetable.
