Dear Cornelius,
Thank you for your personal invitation.
This is to confirm I will be able to travel to Berlin contribute to discussions as well as to interpret English<>Russian for Bashkir Wikimedians' representative (and possibly others willing to use my services) during the 2020 Summit, as was explained to me in the phonecall by Zufar Salikhov of UG BAK.
I understand that my participation might also contribute for an easier integration of Mr. Khabil Sakhabiev (UG TAT) into international discussions & sharing them with young Wikimedians back at home via Selet WikiSchool. This will also give me a chance to meet colleagues before I go into my heavy work season at home. I previously expressed my intention to skip Wikimania 2020, instead interpreting it for others into Russian live from home.
I filled the form as an extra Wikimedia Russia rep. in group 4. I requested overnight flights to/from Berlin as follows:
to: SU 1197 + SU 2684 arriving 9:00 
from: SU 6640 + SU 6595 departing 18:20

Dear Farkhad,


From April 3 to 5, 2020, the Wikimedia Summit will take place in Berlin. The main purpose of this year’s Wikimedia Summit will be to start a new phase of the ongoing Movement Strategy Process: 


During these three days, we aim to transition from discussing the recommendations towards implementing them. At the Summit, we want to initiate this transition together in a collaborative manner, discuss the prioritization of the recommendations, and create a shared responsibility on who is going to implement which part of the proposed changes.


The Wikimedia Summit 2020 will bring together around 140 affiliates as well as the Wikimedia Foundation. To meaningfully contribute to these conversations and enrich the perspectives on how to implement the proposed recommendations, I would like to invite you to attend. It will be our pleasure to welcome you free of cost to this event. 


This invitation is based on your expertise of the movement, your unique contributions to it, and your rich perspective. We are hoping that by then, participants will be familiar with the content and context of movement strategy so we can best use our limited time together and dive deep into conversations around implementation. 


Please let us know by Wednesday, January 29, if you would be able to attend. If so, please register via our form [1], and use “Group 4” as the participant group.


Best regards
