In July, Rossotrudnichestvo with the support of the Foundation for Social and Cultural Initiatives (FSCI), holds special events dedicated to the Day of Family, Love and Faithfulness. Commemorative medals for love and fidelity are awarded to the best couples of our compatriots abroad, whose marriage union is an example of love, strength, well-being and family harmony. Since 2014, by the decision of the holiday Organizing Committee, it has become possible to award this medal to foreign state citizens.
Complex events within the framework of the holiday celebration are accompanied by thematic exhibitions, concerts and lectures. The thematic events’ main goal is to promote traditional family values among the foreign public and our compatriots, to preserve and popularize the family as the main institution for the individual’s formation and socialization, spiritual and moral foundations and the continuity of generations around the world.
As part of the celebration, the Agency's foreign offices are stepping up their cooperation with the Russian Orthodox Church (ROC) in the post-Soviet countries, the canonical territories of the ROC, the Slavonic world and with the representatives of other faiths in foreign countries.
