“The Civic Chamber of the Russian Federation, being the legal representative of the civil society of our state, understands very clearly why Russia initiated the creation of the Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly. Today, the role of civil society is significantly increasing around the world. Russian civil society, with its historical tradition of serving the state and public interests, is becoming a fulcrum in this world. It is the state that, more than any other, attentively treats creative international initiatives and supports them. The most important mission of Russian civil society is to promote this value of serving public and state interests in the Eurasian civil society that is what the Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly does successfully”, - said Iosif Diskin.
