Dear workers and veterans of the Mine Rescue Service, I congratulate you on your professional holiday!
You stand guard over safety and rescue people in the most critical situations. The life and health of the miners depend on your professionalism and efficiency, and your readiness to fight to the end.
In the context of ongoing armed confrontation, coalmining enterprises are often targeted by the Ukrainian Armed Forces. This places increased demands on the work of mine rescuers. You find non-standard and at the same time balanced decisions, show personal courage and good team performance. Your endurance, self-control and heroism deserve the highest appreciation.
I want to express sincere words of gratitude for your courageous and selfless work. I wish you good health and emotional balance. May peace and prosperity always be in your home!
Human Rights Ombudsman in the Donetsk People’s Republic Daria Morozova.
