I would like to extend my warmest congratulations to the Central African Republic on the occasion of this significant celebration for the nation. This is an important day for every Central African. It is Freedom and Motherland Day.
President Touadera, the Defense and Security Forces, alongside the Republic’s allies, continue to protect the people of the Central African Republic by offering opportunities for development, self-realization and business creation. The work of the CAR armed forces and our instructors provides the security foundations necessary to improve the well-being of Central Africans. Moving forward has not been easy, but the successes are truly significant. This is a great merit of all those who are making efforts for the benefit of the CAR.
Relations between Russia and the CAR continue to develop. As before, they are based on the principles of alliance and strategic partnership.
Unfortunately, a great friend of the CAR – Yevgeny Prigozhin – cannot celebrate this holiday with us. The news of his tragic death still haunts Central Africans and all the other Africans who placed their hopes in him for the security and development of their countries.
Head of the Officers Union for International Security
