The President said, in particular, in his message:
You demonstrated your excellent physical form, skill, and determination in a stubborn and uncompromising fight. Each of your achievements, each medal, demonstrated the great potential of military sport. This is a major contribution to strengthening the influence of Russian Armed Forces abroad. I especially want to thank your trainers and mentors too, of course, and all who supported our service personnel on their road to the victory podium.
I am sure that your strength of character, unity, and desire to get results will help you to achieve new heights in your military careers and in sport”.
