UFA, 12 February 2015. /Bashinform News Agency, Iliya Spiridonov/. On February 12, in Ufa, the Head of Bashkortostan Rustem Khamitov presented state awards of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Bashkortostan. Titles, certificates of honour, medals and marks of distinction were awarded to 48 leading workers of industry, public health, transport, social services, housing and communal services, culture and art of the republic.
The Head of Bashkortostan particularly thanked those awardees who had worked in Crimea helping local people to overcome difficulties.
“I want to thank you because you have performed a very important, necessary and important work. You have restored 37-38 objects. Many people living in Crimea felt our care. They realized that the words "Bashkir builders" were synonymous with good quality work. Of course, it’s inspiring,” the Head of the Republic said.
“While we have such people in the republic everything will be fine in Bashkortostan. We will develop in the right direction, constantly improving the lives of our people,” the Head of Bashkortostan said.
Full transcript of the speech and prize list is published on the official website of the Head of the Republic.
