Dear friends! I am happy to welcome the visitors of our website and would like to use this opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We will remember 2011, which is almost over, as a period of changes in the world happening at an increasing speed, coinciding with more turbulence in international relations. The world economy was being negatively influenced by crisis symptoms which affected almost everyone. At the same time I would like to note that bilateral relations, political and cultural ties, trade and economic cooperation between our countries are becoming more sustainable. The remarkable pace of the development of political contacts that has been achieved in 2011, their high level is proof of it. Still, there is a lot to be done. I am sure that the Russian-British relations have a bright future.I hope that the New Year will fulfill your expectations and bring you success and prosperity. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
