Dear workers and veterans of fire services, I extend my good wishes to you on the Fire Service Day
Courage and dedication, the ability to take action swiftly, make quick decisions and effectively implement them in order to save lives and health of citizens, their property, objects of social infrastructure and national economy, are the most important qualities that characterize people who have devoted themselves to one of the most dangerous and demanding professions.
It is especially challenging for the firefighters of the Donetsk People’s Republic to work in conditions of the ongoing armed conflict. Thanks to your high professionalism and personal courage, every day you overcome all difficulties and challenges with honour and dignity. Your courage and commitment have earned deep respect and sincere recognition of the people of Donbass.
I wish good health, peace and well-being to you and your loved ones. May the majority of your work will be of a preventive nature rather than operational, and its effectiveness will be a reliable foundation for the security and prosperity of the Donetsk People’s Republic and all its inhabitants.
