I would like to thank my dear friend the chairman of Tatar Assossiation of United Kingdom for inviting me to this seminar. It’s very important to hold this kind of seminars, because it gives an opportunity to gather and to disscuss about actual problems in our society.
I have visited the Association several times and it is pleasure to mention that the organisation is developing dynamically. And in the growing of activity of Tatars in UK the main role is playing Mr. Ramil Rifmir uly Minullin and all his friends who help him. Nowadays UK Tatar Association organises Sabantuy and Nowruz events, makes strong relations with Government of UK, Republic of Tatarstan. The Association is a member of European Aliance of Tatars wich means relations to Tatar ogranisations in European countries.
For the future, the Association plans to build a strong organisation with wide activities in culture, language and religions. Behalf of muslim society of Finland and Rupublic of Tatarstan we wish success and best future to Tatars in UK.
