« It has been twenty years now since the legal regulation of surrogate motherhood was enshrined legislatively by the adoption of the Russian Family Code. Since then, thousands of «artifically conceived» children carried by surrogates have been born. Those childen would never have been born without your help. Thousands or Russian families experienced the joy of parenthood thanks to you! » he said in the greetings text.

About 30 countries, including Russia, celebrate this day on other dates, according to their national traditions.
