Welcome address

Dear friends,

Vladimir ChizhovI am glad to welcome you on the pages of the website of the Russian Permanent Mission to the European Union.

Our Mission always does its best to keep you informed of the major events both in the Russia-EU relations and in the foreign policy of our country in whole providing you with information at first hand. Press-conferences for Russian and foreign media held on the premises of the Permanent Mission became a good tradition. During these meetings me and other government officials highlight the most interesting and significant issues. Video press-conferences Brussels-Moscow are organized on a regular basis. I also give interviews and comments to print and web editions, radio and television, deliver speeches during various conferences and discussions.

Nevertheless, the organization of such events takes time. We live in the age of information technology with pace of life speeding up constantly and as a consequence certain information quickly becomes outdated. Moreover, the Russia-EU cooperation deepens permanently, the quantity of joint meetings and events keeps growing with number of interested persons increasing.

This site has been created to keep you up to date, to give precise and full information at a right moment. I hope it will become a useful source of authentic and latest data as well as means allowing to clarify arising questions and misunderstandings by interactive communication.

Sincerely yours,

Vladimir Chizhov,
Ambassador Extraordinary
and Plenipotentiary,
Permanent Representative
of the Russian Federation to the EU
