Dear workers and veterans of the metallurgical industry, I sincerely congratulate you on your professional holiday!
Metallurgy is one of the critical branches of the economy of the Donetsk People’s Republic. Many cities were created around metallurgical enterprises. The work of metallurgists is complicated and honourable and is especially respected by Donbass residents.
In the context of the military-political confrontation and socio-economic blockade, you managed to preserve the industrial infrastructure, resolve a number of critical tasks to resume production, establish a new logistics network, ensure the supply of raw materials and search for new market outlets. Through your work, you make a significant contribution to the development of the national economy of our young Republic and therefore contribute to raising the level and improving the quality of life of its citizens.
I express my sincere gratitude for your honest and dedicated work for the benefit of the Motherland. May every day bring new professional achievements and production victories. I wish you good health, peace and prosperity, happiness and well-being to you and your loved ones!
