Dear Anton Evgen’evich,

I send my heartfelt congratulations to you, your entire staff, to all of your contributors, and to the readers of the newspaper Blagovest on the 20-th anniversary of the publication of its first issue. I know that your newspaper is read all across our vast Fatherland, and it is an aid to our fellow countrymen in their service to the Church and to Russia, defending our traditional spiritual and cultural values.

I especially appreciate your objective coverage of the service Our House has performed in the past and present.

My son and heir, Grand Duke Georgii Mikhailovich, joins me in congratulating you and also sends his warm greetings.

I assure you of my genuine support and favor.

May the Lord bless and keep you!
