The message reads, in part:
“The history of this iconic design bureau is inseparable from the prominent achievements and working victories of several generations of talented researchers, designers, engineers, pilots, military specialists and workers devoted to their Motherland.
Of course, during this anniversary we pay tribute to Pavel Sukhoi and his associates, who stood at the forefront of the creation of jet and supersonic aviation in our country.
Today this company is considered a leader in the Russian military and civil aviation industry. Today’s personnel uphold the traditions of their predecessors and make a great contribution to the development of the industry, to strengthening the country's defence potential and to adding new aircraft of various types to the SU family.
I am certain that you will continue working scrupulously and achieving the set goals for the benefit of Russia and its people.”
