Congratulations of the IPC President Andrew Parsons on the 25th Anniversary of the Russian Paralympic Commiitee:
On behalf of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) please allow me to extend my sincere congratulations on the occasion of 25th anniversary of the Russian Paralympic Committee.
For a quarter of a century of its activity, the Russian Paralympic Committee has become a strong sports organization that has made a significant contribution to the development of the Paralympic Movement worldwide. Starting from scratch, you have achieved excellent results while the performances of Russian Para athletes have helped changed towards disability in your country and created new opportunities.
You are celebrating your 25th anniversary in 2021, the year of the rearranged Paralympic Games in Tokyo, an event that could be the most important in our history due to the disproportionate impact COVID-19 has had on persons with disabilities around the globe. We are confident the Games will be a great success.
I wish the Russian Paralympic Committee a happy 25th anniversary and wish your further success and prosperity in the coming 25 years.
