The message reads, in part:
“Your museum opened in 1942 and since then has put together a unique collection of items that narrate the establishment and progress of medical care in our country and the glorious heroic pages of its history. The museum carefully preserves photographs, documents and personal effects of famous scientists, doctors, leaders and managers of Russian military medicine.
It is gratifying that the current staff continues the enlightened traditions of its predecessors, conducts important research and educational activities and works to expand the museum’s collections. I should specially note significant patriotic initiatives and active participation in the Roads of Memory national campaign.”
