The Executive Council of Apimondia, in close consultation with the Local Organizing Committee and the Russian National Union of Beekeepers have decided that this is the most sensible course of action given the realities of COVID-19 and the uncertainty that this pandemic is causing for travel.

We remain committed to a great 47th Apimondia Congress in Ufa in 2022: “Let’s bee in the heart of Eurasia”.

New dates will be announced soon and congress web page will be revised accordingly.

Congress President

Dear friends!

Beekeepers in Russia have carefully passed on the traditions and experience of beekeeping from generation to generation. The Russian National Union of Beekeepers is the largest community of beekeepers and the successor of the Russian Society of Beekeepers with a 128-year history.

The names of Russian beekeeper scientists, such as A. Butlerov, I. Kablukov, N. Vitvitskiy, G. Kozhevnikov, A. Titov and many others who contributed to the development of world beekeeping are well known all over the world.

The main objectives of the Russian National Union of Beekeepers are to preserve bees – guarantors of development and prosperity of flora and fauna; to create conditions for creative approach to beekeeping and for production of high-quality honey by beekeepers – members of the Union. Russian National Union of Beekeepers takes an active part in all relevant events in the world.

The Government of the Republic of Bashkortostan traditionally provides special support to beekeeping. People in Bashkortostan are known for their particular hospitality, exceptional traditions, their love and knowledge in beekeeping and have the highest honey consumption rate in Russia.

It is not coincidence that Bashkortostan has come forward with an initiative to hold the 47th Apimondia Congress in Ufa. I am sure that each participant of the Congress will find something interesting and will have an opportunity to get to know the experience of the best beekeepers of not only Bashkortostan, but also of all Russian regions presented at ApiExpo 2021.

We will be glad to welcome you, dear colleagues!

President of the Russian
National Union of Beekeepers
A. Butov
