On October 2, 2020, Secretary General of the Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly Andrei Belyaninov sent a congratulatory letter to the Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of Republic India in the Russian Federation Venkatesh Varma on the great national holiday of India - Gandhi Jayanti – the birthday of the great Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi and the International Day of Nonviolence.

The message reads:

- The father of the Indian State, a true patriot of his homeland, became a man of peace. Mahatma Gandhi's philosophy of nonviolence is an immutable life - affirming law for all progressive humanity. Thanks to such ideas and canons, peace and harmony will prevail on the Earth.

The Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly, respecting the beliefs and worldview of the Indian public and political figure, is guided in its activities by universal norms of humanity and nonviolence, a moral duty to our ancestors and future generations - a culture of world values that preserves the common, basic foundations for all peoples, such as God, love, friendship, religious respect, social unity, family, morality, ethics, world peace, good, justice, freedom, and universal prosperity.

On behalf of the Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly, I wish the world's largest democracy - the Republic of India - and its peoples eternal peace, unfading prosperity and boundless happiness!
