State of the Chairman of the WDS 2016 Organizing Committee

18.05.2016

Dear Colleagues and friends!

On the 11th of May, 2016 I was elected as The Chairman of the WDS 2016 Organizing Committee.
On the 12th of May, 2016 there have been published several letters on my behalf addressed to the RKF Board and the Russian Hunting Dog Federation (RHDF). I express my deep concerns towards the inappropriate behavior of particular individuals aiming to use my name to their own advantage. I assert that I have no relation to such correspondence and other publications in the mass media. I also inform you that all the information and statements on my behalf will be published only on the official website of the Russian Kynological Federation.
I am hoping that RKF will join forces to consolidate and strengthen RKF organization and will hold the World Dog Show 2016 on a highest level, defending and promoting the interests of our great country.

Yours, respectfully,
The Chairman of the WDS 2016 Organizing Committee.
Honorary President of the Olympic Committee of Russian Federation.
Councellor to the Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation.
Member of the Council of the Russian Federation.

Leonid Tyagachev
