Pedagogues and medics, workers of culture and law-enforcement bodies and representatives of Ufa industrial enterprises gathered on Tuesday, October 6, in Ufa Culture Palace to take part in the solemn meeting, devoted to the forthcoming Republic Day. President of Bashkortostan Murtaza Rakhimov congratulated all comers with the main state holiday of the Republic. He mentioned in his short speech that for 19 years since the adoption of the Declaration about state sovereignty RB this holiday has become not just an official festival but really the all-national one.

“The most important political solutions had been made that time in 1990 under very difficult and really critical situation” – Murtaza Rakhimov said – “We’ve provided the rise of Bashkortostan’s state and legal status, thus getting a chance to solve many urgent problems self-dependently. That’s why we’ve managed not just to protect the economic and cultural potential RB from total destruction but stabilized the situation. Republic of Bashkortostan was one of the first Russian regions, stepping on the path of annual growth of production and social and spiritual development”.

As Murtaza Rakhimov underscored, the main thing they’ve managed to do is protection of our most important treasure – international and inter-religious agreement, i.e. the stability of our society.

Talking about the city of Ufa President RB said that it became the deserved capital of Bashkortostan, as one of the supporting regions in Russian Federation.

“The meaning of Ufa as the largest Eurasian center of economics, science, education and culture, has sharply risen” – the head of the Republic said – “Now our capital makes weighty endowment to development not just of our Republic but of the whole of Russia”.

It is worth saying that after the first half of the year Ufa holds leading positions among 11 Russian cities with one millionth population: the third place by the amount of monthly salaries and the second by the retail trade turnover and volume of public services and Ufa stands on the first place by the index of physical volume of investments and by the lowest level of unprofitable enterprises. “We have rather high level of birth rate and low index of death rate and it means Ufa citizens work good and live well” – Murtaza Rakhimov mentioned with satisfaction.

Traditionally many citizens of Ufa were rewarded with state awards this day (11 people). October 6 will become the annual family festival for 15 workers of budget sphere too because they received the keys from new flats from Ufa Mayor Paul Kachkaev – teachers and artists, doctors and policemen. In total complexity 80 people will become owners of social flats on the eve of the Republic Day.
