Dear students, educators, teachers and professors, I wholeheartedly congratulate you on the beginning of new academic year!
Day of Knowledge is a celebration that marks the beginning of a new academic year. On this day, everyone who is or was a student and those who educate the younger generation, guiding them along an endless path of knowledge, relieves fond memories. Today, educational institutions open their doors to welcome all those who seek for discovery and knowledge, personal development and improvement. Of course, this day will be the most exciting and memorable for first graders. After all, the brightest and most wonderful school time is the first major milestone in life.
I would like to express special gratitude to pedagogues of the Donetsk People’s Republic, who, in spite of hostilities, did not leave their homeland. Instead, with courage, determination and love for children, they keep carrying out their professional duty.
I extend my most sincere and warm congratulations! May this year bring new victories, success and achievements.
