Russians celebrate their national day

06/10/2009 11:17 PM

Dubai: Hundreds of Russians gathered this week to celebrate their country's national day.

An evening reception at Jumeirah Beach Hotel featured traditional Russian dancing and guests dined on authentic fare such as vareniki (stuffed dumplings filled with various ingredients including cheese, mashed potatoes and meat), pelmeni (a type of dumpling with a filling that is wrapped in thin unleavened dough), blini (pancakes) and caviar. Some guests also wore sarafan, the Russian folk costume.

Sergey Krasnogor, Consul General of the Russian Federation in Dubai, said: "This is a very important day for all Russians as it marks the inauguration of our president and the rebirth of our nation."

Russia Day is a holiday of national unity celebrated on June 12 every year as on this day, in 1990, the Russian Parliament formally declared its sovereignty from the Soviet Union. Initially it was named "Day of the Adoption of the Declaration of Sovereignty of the Russian Federation" but it was officially renamed "Russia Day" in 2002.

After the national anthems of the UAE and Russia played, Krasnogor spoke on the issue of the current global economic climate.

He said: "This economic crisis is a test for all nations. No comprehensive solution has been found yet but one conclusion already drawn is joint efforts are more effective and essential for the good of all nations.

"Russia and the UAE share an important strategic relationship based on mutual interests. We are very optimistic that relations between the two countries will continue to strengthen and we are trying to increase cooperation in all fields. It is also very important for security and stability in the Middle East that our relations remain strong."

His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, visited Moscow earlier this year where he met Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.
