The Overseas Vietnamese Association in Russia has granted 84,000 USD in support of coast guards, fisheries surveillance officials and fishermen who are safeguarding national sovereignty in the East Sea.
The sum has raised its donation so far to 110,000 USD.

Speaking in Hanoi on June 24, Deputy Foreign Minister and head of the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs Nguyen Thanh Son expressed his hope that the Vietnamese communities abroad will stay supportive of law enforcement officials and fishermen at home, both materially and spiritually.

Tran Xuan Kien, a representative from the Vietnam Coast Guard, expressed thanks to the Vietnamese in Russia, describing this as a great encouragement for his fellows to brave every danger at sea to safeguard Vietnam’s sea and island sovereignty.-VNA
