President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Good afternoon. I want to greet you all and offer my warmest congratulations on Russian Students’ Day, congratulating all Russian students through you, and all postgraduates and faculty at your universities, especially at Moscow State University, of course, which is hosting our today’s meeting.
I hope very much that your student years will be a happy and successful time, that you will complete your study programmes and will work with interest and pleasure for the good of our country, for Russia’s benefit. Happy holiday! I wish you all the very best.
