On 8 September 2022 a farewell reception was held to mark the termination of Ambassador Vladimir Chizhov’s mission as Russian Permanent Representative to the European Union.

Speaking to representatives of European Union institutions, the Brussels diplomatic corps, business associations, NGOs and media, Vladimir Chizhov briefly outlined the twists and turns in Russia – EU relations in recent years and took stock of his seventeen years’ tenure as Permanent Representative to the EU. He called on partners to adopt a responsible attitude towards the future of Europe, noting the readiness of Russia, an integral part thereof, to work for the benefit of all the peoples of the continent in a constructive and mutually respectful manner.

The guests also had the opportunity to see a mini-exhibition dedicated to 32 Russia – EU Summits.
