Russian Minister of Justice Delivers Vladimir Putin’s Greetings to SPILF Participants, Organizers, and Guests
Russian Minister of Justice Konstantin Chuychenko read out Russian President Vladimir Putin’s greetings to the participants, organizers, and guests of the 11th St. Petersburg International Legal Forum (SPILF).
In his greetings, Putin noted that the SPILF has strengthened its positions in recent years and become a respected platform for professional, expert discussions on a wide range of legal issues. He also drew special attention to the importance of the Forum’s main theme – ‘Sovereignty in Law’, stressing that the use of illegitimate sanctions, ignoring the principles of equality of countries, non-interference in their internal affairs, and breaking treaties on strategic stability cause serious damage to the international legal system and destroy its very essence.
“Russia has consistently advocated for building a mutually beneficial partnership in the political sphere and matters concerning security, the economy, science, culture, and sports. We firmly believe that the rule of law and respect for the sovereignty of states are precisely what creates a solid foundation for the fairer and more democratic multipolar world order that is taking shape,” Putin said in his welcome address.
Putin expressed confidence that the Forum would be constructive, and the ideas and proposals put forward by its participants would help to solve pressing problems in the development and improvement of international law.
The SPILF is taking place in St. Petersburg on 11–13 May.
