This confidence fully meets the aspirations of Russia and the citizens of our country, who, I note, love dynamic, spectacular beach football and are proud of the successes of the Russian team. I am sure that acquaintance with the Russian capital will leave the most vivid and fond memories of the tournament participants and fans from all over the world.
