MOSCOW, October 6 (Itar-Tass) - Russian organisers of the Olympic Torch Relay will do their best to hold the event throughout the country along the highest standards and will make it unique, chairman of the 2014 Sochi Organising Committee Dmitry Chernyshenko said at a ceremony of welcoming the main symbol of the Winter Games, which arrived Sunday from Greece to Moscow’s Vnukovo airport.

“Today is a historic day,” Chernyshenko said. “We hope the Russian stage of the relay will be unique. We’ll do everything possible to hold it at the highest level. We’ll make the flame light the hearts of millions of Russians.”

On Sunday, an Aeroflot jet delivered the Olympic flame for the 2014 Winter Games from Greece to Moscow’s Vnukovo airport.

The ceremony of lighting the main symbol of the Sochi Games took place in Greece September 29.

Moscow City will host the first stage of the Olympic Flame Relay that will last through to October 9.

The Olympic flame will be taken to all the 83 constituent regions of Russia, into orbit and to the floor of Lake Baikal. The relay will finish February 7 in Sochi when the 22nd Winter Olympic Games begin.
