The message reads, in part:
“It is gratifying that your forum is strengthening its traditions and attracting ever more energetic and caring people from many cities and towns of Russia every year.
I would like to note that the movement of “silver” volunteers is a remarkable and inspiring example for our young people. You selflessly help those who need your care and attention and share your rich professional and life experience with the rising generation. Your responsible attitude to significant public and social issues, your sincere feeling of engagement in the life of our Fatherland deserve our deepest gratitude.”
