The message reads, in part:
“The establishment of the republic was an important milestone in the history of national and state construction in Russia and helped the socioeconomic development of the region, as well as the preservation of the language and the original cultural and spiritual legacy of the peoples living there.
Over the years, cities and villages were built in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), a processing industry, fuel and energy enterprises and forestry complexes have been established and are successfully operating today. Mineral deposits have been discovered and are being developed, and the transport infrastructure is being upgraded. People living in the republic have great respect for the unique traditions and customs of many generations of their ancestors and protect the pristine beauty of the harsh northern nature.
I am confident that you will continue to strive towards great results in the interests of your home republic and the whole of Russia, and also to make a significant contribution towards addressing national tasks.”
