The message reads, in part:
“The Kemerovo Region’s history is inseparably associated with the hard work of many generations of miners, steelworkers, workers and builders who developed the natural deposits in Western Siberia, erected cities and towns, built mines and plants, transport and energy infrastructure facilities. They built the foundation for Kuzbass strong industrial potential that became the pillar for the national economy and played a huge role in the Great Patriotic War.
These days, the Kemerovo Region is steadily developing and remains one of the industrial leaders in Russia. The region is creating a favourable business as well as investment climate, implementing large-scale social projects and improving its residents’ living standards.
I am certain that the residents’ proactive approach, ambition and driving energy will continue to move them towards new victories for the good of the region as well as the entire country.”
