Greetings to participants of VTB Kremlin Cup international tennis tournament

Vladimir Putin sent a message of greetings to participants, organisers and guests of the VTB Kremlin
Cup international tennis tournament.

The message reads, in part:

“The Kremlin Cup is rightly
considered to be a tournament with a rich history filled with unforgettable
events, celebrities among its participants and their triumphs. And of course,
many beginning tennis players made a name for themselves here in Moscow, and these traditional competitions laid their path to success and became an important stage in building their professional careers.

I want to take this opportunity to congratulate athletes
and all tennis fans on a remarkable date – the 100th anniversary of the Russian Tennis Federation, which made and continues to make a huge
contribution to the development and promotion of this wonderful sport in our
country, and to the enhancement of international humanitarian cooperation.”
