The message reads, in part:
“You are rightfully proud of the names and feats of outstanding commanders and military leaders, soldiers and officers, all those who for many centuries faithfully and loyally served the Motherland and won immortal glory in major battles for its freedom and independence.
Today the current generation of the Ground Forces is honourably continuing these military and patriotic traditions. The honour and courage of soldiers and commanders, their loyalty to their duty and the Motherland have been clearly displayed during the special military operation.
I am confident that the Ground Forces personnel will continue demonstrating their high level of training and reliably protecting the sovereignty and national interests of Russia.”
