Dmitry Medvedev expresses his condolences over the demise of Prince Dimitri Romanov

The message to Princess Feodora Romanov reads:

Please accept my heartfelt condolences over the death of Dimitri Romanovich Romanov.

He was an outstanding compatriot, and, as the eldest of the family, rightfully headed the Romanov Family Association.

Dimitri Romanovich witnessed the most important events of the 20th and 21st centuries. During our private meetings, I saw on many occasions that he never distanced himself from Russia and was always willing to help his Motherland.

By heading the charity foundation of the Romanov family, the Prince patronised Russian hospitals and foster homes, searched for cultural heritage objects and brought them back to Russia, helped preserve the historical memory, primarily the memory of the Imperial Royal House of Russia.

 It is owing to him and, certainly, owing to your support, dear Feodora Alekseyevna, that many of our compatriots abroad came to know more about our country, its history and culture.

We will forever keep the memory of Dimitri Romanovich in our hearts.
