Kirsan Ilyumzhinov congratulates people of Buryatia on Republic Day

On 30 May, Republic Day was celebrated in Buryatia. First president of Kalmykia, sixth president of FIDE Kirsan Ilyumzhinov congratulated the people of the Republic of Buryatia on this great holiday. The text of congratulatory letter reads as follows:

“The historical, spiritual and cultural ties of the Kalmyks and Buryats go back to the old ages and are so strong that it is no coincidence that the Kalmyks all the victories and achievements of the Buryat brothers perceive as ours, and we are ready to share all their sorrows and failures.
That is why the day of formation of the Republic of Buryatia, which celebrates its 97th anniversary, we Kalmyks perceive as our own holiday. Let me remind you that on 30 May 1923, the Buryat-Mongol Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic was formed by a resolution of the Presidium of the All-Russian Central Executive Committee.


Today, Russian Buryatia impresses everyone with its energy, passion in good deeds and striving for new achievements. Buryatia has become a large industrial region of Russia. In many respects, this is the merit of the current leadership of the republic, and, above all, the head of Buryatia, Alexei Sambuevich Tsydenov. He managed to rally the local society and aim the creative potential at solving important socio-economic problems.

In 2017, the Head of Buryatia approved 30 May as a state holiday of the Republic of Buryatia. Great and vast is our mighty Russia. It is not difficult to get lost in it among a host of peoples and almost a hundred equal subjects of the Russian Federation. But Buryatia is rightly proud of the rich history and achievements of today. Over the past years, a significant success has been achieved in the economy, culture, healthcare, education and in all significant areas of life.
With all my heart, I congratulate Aleksey Sambuevich Tsydenov, the fraternal Buryat people, all the inhabitants and workers of Buryatia on the Republic Day! In our difficult time, we finally realized that our strength lies in unity and cohesion, our support are relatives and friends, and our main goal is securing the wonderful future of our children and grandchildren.
May all your relatives and friends be healthy, may children enjoy their successes, and have the strength to make their lives happy. I wish all residents of the multinational republic health and well-being! Happy holiday! ”
