‘The town twinning movement grew out of a desire of people in many countries to avoid the conflicts of the first half of the 20th Century by bringing together people from cities in different countries. Our link with Pskov was born out of a desire to help the people of Pskov through a difficult period in its history as Russia moved to a new model of government. Perth is a city at the heart of Scotland, both geographically and historically, and our people have always looked out on the world for ideas and inspiration very often unaware that people in other countries often looked to Scotland for the same reasons.” Liz Grant, Provost of Perth and Kinross

“Ever since 1992 the cities of Pskov and Perth have enjoyed a partnership and friendship based on mutual support and respect. We are delighted that this friendship continues to grow, and that more and more people are becoming involved with the twinning, bringing new ideas. Our heartfelt thanks to all of our friends in Perth for our longstanding partnership. We wish you all health, prosperity and happiness. May our friendship continue for many years to come!” Ivan Tsetsersky, Mayor of Pskov

“The cooperation between Pskov and Perth is a brilliant example of the true sense of twinning. It is as efficient and prolific now as it was during all these years. Moreover, we see that year after year joint activities expand, more cultural projects are being implemented. Indeed, over 25 years of people-to-people friendly ties is a great achievement. We consider it our priority to support this partnership, and we are grateful to all those enthusiastic people who help promote links between two ancient and rich cultures.” Andrey Pritsepov, Consul General of the Russian Federation in Edinburgh
