On May 9 in the Victory Day the President of Bashkortostan Rustem Khamitov has visited solemn actions in different parts of Ufa – on the Lenin’s Square and in Yakutov’s and Matrosov’s parks.

In the park by Ivan Yakutov the President of Bashkortostan was talking  to veterans:

“Dear veterans” – he said to the heroes – “I want to congratulate all of you with the Victory Day – the great holiday, the main holiday of our life. I see that you are strong people. You have strong characters, good moods and you have that optimism, which younger people are often deprived of. I want you to preserve this optimism for many years ahead.

But the main thing that you must have strong health and that your relatives, kids, grandchildren and even grand-grandchildren would make you happy because while the connection between generations is present, our country, our motherland will live. We shall always stand near you and you may count upon us. Please, let me congratulate you with the Victory Day once again. We respect you! We love you! I wish you good luck, strong health and all the best! Great thanks to all of you!”
