Dear citizens, dear veterans, I extend my sincere greetings on the 74th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War!
May 9 is the day when we express our gratitude to all who brought us peace and freedom, who fought on the front lines and on the home front, and those who helped our land recover in the difficult post-war years. The Great Victory will always stay in our hearts as a symbol of national pride, military glory and the valour of our people.
74 years ago, at the cost of their own lives, the liberators defended our Homeland and humanity from fascism. Their strength and courage gave us the right to life and freedom. The memory of the heroism of all those who selflessly fought for the fate of future generations and contributed to our common Victory will stay in our hearts and souls forever.
I sincerely wish you good health, well-being, happiness, peaceful skies and an inexhaustible faith in the bright future of our young Republic!
