In July, Rossotrudnichestvo, supported by the Social and Cultural Initiatives Fund (SCIF), organizes celebrations to mark the Day of Family, Love and Loyalty. Commemorative Medals for love and loyalty are awarded to the best families of our compatriots living abroad, whose marriages serve as examples of love, strength, devotion and family harmony. Since 2014, the Organizing Committee of the celebration has made it possible to award foreign citizens with this medals.
Comprehensive events held on the Day of Family, Love and Loyalty are accompanied by thematic exhibitions, concerts and lectures. The main objectives of these events consist in promoting traditional family values within foreign communities and among our fellow citizens, preserving and inculcating family as the primary institution for individuals’ formation and socialization, spiritual and moral foundations and continuity of generations around the world.
In the course of these celebrations, the foreign representative offices of Rossotrudnichestvo get a chance to further their relations with the parishes of the Russian Orthodox Church in various post-Soviet countries, the canonical territory of the Russian Orthodox Church, in the Slavic world, as well as with representatives of other religions in foreign countries.
