The congratulatory speech reads, in particular:
“A great deal has been said and written about this great battle. But the main point remains obvious: in 1941 the country’s fate was determined in the fields near Moscow. This feat, the greatest of national feats, is a timeless achievement and we solemnly remember the unprecedented courage of those who shattered the myth of the invincibility of Hitler’s army and made the first step on the way to the Great Victory.
Special gratitude is due to veterans and those who participated in the fight for Moscow. Your heroism and selflessness will always be seen as evidence of the highest standards of patriotism, virtue and fidelity to duty. I wish you health, long life and all the best.”
