That the Parliament celebrates the visit of traditional Cossack martial artists from Azoz in Russia to Paisley as part of a cultural exchange organised by the Paisley denizen and traditional Scottish wrestler, Zane Grey, and the Russian Sambo Master, Vadim Kolganov; recognises the work undertaken that enabled traditional Scottish martial artists to take part in the Cossack Martial Games; acknowledges the outward looking and inclusive nature of this cultural expedition, and welcomes close links between those involved and their wider communities.
