The message reads, in part:
“First and foremost, I would like to thank you for the large-scale, very necessary work that you do, for your commitment and dedication, and for your genuine desire to be of use to your Fatherland and your people. I am certain that you will remain forever committed to the great ideas and volunteering traditions of the Victory Volunteers movement.
I am pleased to see this truly nation-wide project thrive and unite ever more people, both in Russia and beyond, around its noble mission. By following the call of your hearts and souls, you greatly contribute to achieving much-needed socially important goals. You support veterans, look after memorials and military burial sites, strive to instill in younger generations respect for the heroic military chapters of Russian history and conduct large-scale civil patriotic rallies.
Importantly, the Victory Volunteers are never satisfied and are steadily expanding their creative and constructive potential as well as their area of responsibility.”
