The message reads, in part:
”Your professional holiday symbolises the recognition of the nuclear industry's strategic contribution to developing our country, our national economy and scientific potential, as well as to strengthening Russia's defence capability. It is also a tribute to the many generations of researchers, designers, engineers and workers who took the domestic nuclear industry to leading international positions.
It is gratifying to know that, building on the rich traditions of your predecessors, you are focused on achieving results and reaching important and ambitious goals. These goals include ensuring the country’s energy security and the industry’s leadership on the global market, introducing advanced technologies in the space industry and nuclear medicine, and modernising and ensuring the effective operation of the nuclear icebreaker fleet in the Arctic.
I am confident that you will continue to demonstrate professionalism and responsibility, and contribute to the dynamic growth of the Russian nuclear industry.“
