Dear workers and veterans of the mining industry, I wholeheartedly congratulate you on your professional holiday!
The work of a miner is complicated and honourable. This profession cultivates some special character traits – readiness to overcome challenges, determination, responsibility, reliability, cohesion and mutual support. These features characterize Donbass people and helped them not only to survive in the fight for national-cultural identity and preservation of historical memory, but also to follow the path of state-building and socio-economic development.
I express my sincere gratitude for your significant contribution to the foundation of the Donetsk People’s Republic, honest and dedicated work for the benefit of the Motherland, and also for the special spirit that makes our region a place of embodiment and improvement of the best human qualities.
I wish you good luck, joyful victories and achievements, well-being and prosperity. Good health, happiness and many blessings to you and your loved ones. May our beloved Donbass be thriving and prosperous forever!
