Governor's address
Mr. Alexander Zhilkin
GOVERNOR OF ASTRAKHAN REGION

Dear friends,
Astrakhan, a nationally and confessionally diverse region, has been for centuries known for its unique atmosphere of stability and harmony. The people of Astrakhan are genetically peace-loving and tolerant towards all religions. One of the secrets of this phenomenon owes to the fact that we live on the shores of the Caspian. The unique sea-lake is a driving force for the peoples of the region to stay united. Our ever-growing endeavour to bolster friendly relations with the Caspian states serves a true confirmation for this.

Astrakhan’s stalwart consolidating mission has been clearly seen through its efforts to hold the IV Caspian Summit in September last year, attended by all 5 Caspian Heads of States. The Summit once again showcased the vast integration potential of multilateral relations between Russia, Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan.

Nowadays we suggest setting up a professional platform for broad information exchange in Astrakhan – Caspian Media Forum. I’m convinced that the mass media community, encompassing professionals from all the Caspian States, will unite around general issues, allowing for a new communication network in the Caspian region and will, beyond any doubt, serve to strengthen privileged cooperation between the countries and nations thus safeguarding the unity of our common interests.

Region

A hospitable region with centuries-old traditions and enormous history, boasting unique culture and stalwart dynamics for its present-day growth. National richness and variety of the region is vividly reflected in peacefully coexisting ceremonial architectural erections and unique architectonic colours. Located at the intersection of major transport routes such as “North-South” and “West-East” the region has become a magnet for holding large-scale Russian and international events.
