Vladimir Putin has sent his greetings to participants in the constituent congress of a voluntary all-Russia society called Sportivnaya Rossiya, or Sporting Russia.
The president's message reads, in part: "Our country has always been famous for its high achievements in professional sports as well as for its traditions of mass physical culture. I am happy to state that these wonderful traditions are being revived.
"The non-political public organization that is being founded today is faced with the extremely important tasks of taking care of all-round development of sports, propagating a healthy lifestyle and values of physical culture, and helping people get stronger and healthier regardless of their age, social status, and physical training level."
