George Vassiliou
Former President of the Republic of Cyprus
Natalia Kardash is one of the most dynamic and creative people I have ever met. She arrived in Cyprus twenty years ago and very soon after her arrival she managed to become associated with both the Cypriot and Russian communities. Natalia ran the first Russian language newspaper in Cyprus, VESTNIK KIPRA, which in a very short period of time became an indispensable paper for the Russian community in Cyprus. At the same time the paper became a 'must have' for those Russian citizens who were interested in Cyprus and wanted to understand the economic and other opportunities offered by the Republic of Cyprus, both its current residents and also for those persons who were interested in taking residency on the island.

Her activities were not however limited to the publishing of the newspaper and included other interesting magazines presenting Cypriot businessmen to a Russian audience under the title of Successful Business Magazine.

I could go on referring to her many activities and initiatives, the purpose of which was very simple: to strengthen Cyprus-Russian relations, to improve the image of Cyprus and promote the island among the local Russian community and abroad, in Russia and other countries.

I would like to thank Natalia Kardash and her team for organizing on a yearly basis the Cyprus-Russian Festival. It attracts thousands of visitors and proves that it has been established as a traditional celebration in the hearts of Russians and Cypriots. This is the Festival which is celebrated by the firm bonds of friendship between our two peoples.

Cyprus and Russia have a long history of cooperation in all fields. A collaboration with deep historical, political, cultural and religious roots. The Government and the people of Cyprus highly appreciate this special relationship that we wish to upgrade more and work of such people like Natalia Kardash who contribute a lot to the strengthening of our bilateral relations.
