Dear Oleg Valentinovich,
I congratulate you and all the employees of Russian Railways on their professional holiday – the Day of the Railroad.
The history of the industry in our country goes back almost two centuries. All this time, its clear and uninterrupted work has served as a support for the development of industry, agriculture, trade and other spheres of the economy. Like a network of blood vessels, covering the entire territory of a great power, the railway provides our economy with the necessary “oxygen”. Contributes to the development of regions, improving the quality of life and well-being of the population.
One of the largest transport companies in the world, Russian Railways, continues the widespread introduction of scientific and technical innovations in combination with the enhancement of the good traditions laid down by previous generations of professionals. The modernization of communication lines carried out in recent years contributes to the dynamic rise of Russia, creates a solid, stable basis for achieving national development goals.
I would especially like to note that in the face of new challenges provoked by the pandemic, railway transport has proved its reliability and efficiency. The deliveries of goods necessary to ensure the vital activity of the regions are not interrupted even for a day.
The coordinating role of Russian Railways in the development of international transport corridors passing through the territory of our country deserves the highest praise.
