Crushed Asians (and Africans)

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev sent his greetings to the organisers of, and participants in,  the 'Women Leaders of Economy and Politics summit', which opened on November 18 in St. Petersburg.

“You represent  non-governmental, academic, business organisations from many countries. And by your impressive achievements prove the important role played by women in today’s world, in economics, politics and culture,” he writes in his message,  published on the Kremlin website.  The President of the Russian Federation  pressed on, candidly, with:

“today we need to do everything possible to improve the social activities of women, open up their creative and intellectual potential. It’s one of the conditions for a stable and efficient development of any state.  ...I hope that your forum will serve further to strengthen the women’ s movement, deepening international economic and humanitarian contacts,”

President Medvedev  wished the Summit fruitful and interesting work.

Gee, thanks.
