Embassy of Portugal in Russia

Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Message from the Ambassador

Welcome to the website of the Embassy of Portugal in Moscow which aims at establishing a permanent channel of communication with our visitors.

The year of 2015 marks the 41st anniversary since the resumption of diplomatic relations between Portugal and Russia, an event that took place shortly after the Revolution of April 25, 1974 in Portugal. However, the diplomatic relations between the two countries are much older, dating back to the 18th century.

TIMG 1520 2oday, Portugal and Russia are two friendly states seeking mutual benefits in an increasingly complex world. Having this in mind, we continue developing a broad cooperation in all areas, from politics to economy as well as education, culture, science and social exchanges.

For my part, I will always be available, together with my team at the Embassy, to promote closer ties between our countries, including through business and cultural promotion.

A special word of appreciation to the Portuguese community who honors the image of Portugal in Russia, as well as the numerous Russian friends that we have in this country.

I wish you all every success.

Mário Godinho de Matos

Ambassador of Portugal
