Russian Ambassador to Bangladesh Alexander Mantytskiy has congratulated the friendly Bangladeshi peoples and the entire Bengali diaspora around the world, on the occasion of the 53rd Independence Day of Bangladesh
“This date symbolises the selfless struggle of your nation for freedom and determination of your own fate,” he said in a message.
“Back in 1971, the Soviet Union supported the Bangladeshi struggle for independence and was at the forefront to recognise the new sovereign state. Over the past 52 years, your country has made significant progress, having overcome the devastating consequences of the war to turn into a self-reliant state with rapidly developing economy and tremendous potential.”
Hopefully, he said the joint efforts by Russia and Bangladesh in promoting bilateral trade, economic and energy cooperation will further benefit our peoples.
“I am confident that in the coming years, Bangladesh will see new remarkable achievements and ensure welfare and prosperity for all its citizens,” Alexander Mantytskiy said in a press statement on Sunday.
