    Important Information

    This fund is non-diversified and can take larger positions in fewer
    issues, increasing its potential risk. Investing in foreign securities
    presents certain risks, such as currency fluctuations, political and
    economic changes, and market risks. Any fund that focuses in a
    particular segment of the market or region of the world will generally
    be more volatile than a fund that invests more broadly.

    The shares of most closed-end funds, including the Fund, are not
    continuously offered.
    Once issued, shares of closed-end funds are
    bought and sold in the open market through a stock exchange.
    of closed-end funds frequently trade at a discount to net asset value.
    The price of a fund’s shares is determined by a number of factors,
    several of which are beyond the control of the fund.
    Therefore, a
    fund cannot predict whether its shares will trade at, below, or above
    net asset value.

    Investments in funds involve risk. Additional risks of the Fund are
    associated with international investing, such as currency fluctuations,
    political and economic changes, market risks, government regulations and
    differences in liquidity, which may increase the volatility of your
    Foreign security markets generally exhibit greater
    price volatility and are less liquid than the US market.
    the Fund focuses its investments in certain geographical regions,
    thereby increasing its vulnerability to developments in those regions
    and potentially subjecting the Fund’s shares to greater price volatility.

    Some funds have more risk than others. These include funds,
    such as the Fund, that allow exposure to or otherwise concentrate
    investments in certain sectors, geographic regions, security types,
    market capitalization, or foreign securities (e.g., political or
    economic instability, which can be accentuated in emerging market

    The European Union, the United States and other countries have
    imposed sanctions on Russia in response to Russian military and other
    actions in recent years.
    These sanctions have adversely affected
    Russian individuals, issuers and the Russian economy.
    Russia, in
    turn, has imposed sanctions targeting Western individuals, businesses
    and products.
    The various sanctions have adversely affected, and
    may continue to adversely affect, not only the Russian economy, but also
    the economies of many countries in Europe, including countries in
    Central and Eastern Europe.
    The continuation of current sanctions
    or the imposition of additional sanctions may materially adversely
    affect the value of the Funds’ portfolios.

    Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

    This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a
    solicitation to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in
    any state or jurisdiction in which such offer or solicitation or sale
    would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the laws
    of such state or jurisdiction.
