THE SECOND MONARCHY FORUM IN HECHINGEN, GERMANY
On 23 October 2009 in Hechingen, Germany, the Second Monarchy Forum, organised by the German Monarchists Society, starts. Participants from different lands of Germany as well as from France, Austria, and Czech state came to Hechingen.
In the beginning of the Forum greetings from the Russian Imperial Union-Order to the Forum was read by Mr Andreas Haas:
The Russian Imperial Union-Order, the oldest and largest Russian monarchist organisation, established 80 years ago, is very glad to greet the Second Monarchy Forum in Hechingen, Germany.
The German and Russian people have a common history which is full not only of sad pages, but also, and more importantly, of bright examples of cooperation and collaboration. A lot of German specialists served the Russian monarchy from the 17th to the 20th century. Today our countries are experiencing a difficult situation of a systematic crisis of spiritual values, ideology, and economy. To overcome this crisis our people need to tear up by the roots the mistaken ideals of the last several decades and to return to the Tradition which was has proven itself throughout centuries and which was developed under the wise rule of our Emperors.
We sincerely hope that your forum will be one of brilliant possibilities to underline that monarchists can propose real alternatives to republican rule, that Monarchy is the only real future for the history of our countries.
The Russian Imperial Union-Order wishes the forum to work successfully and hopes for further effective collaboration with German monarchists.
With Imperial regards,
George A. Fedoroff,
Commander of the RIU-O
The Forum will work to 25 October 2009.
