Speech of Vladimir Putin at gala concert in Red Square marking Moscow’s 870th anniversary.

Russian President Vladimir Putin:

Muscovites, visitors to the city, Mr. Prime Minister, Mr. Sobyanin,

I would like to congratulate you all on City Day!

This day is always marked by grand and festive celebration, with people expressing their sincere love for Moscow, its centuries’ old history and its contemporary achievements, their pride for our beautiful capital – a dynamic, and innovative city, ready to face the future and invariably majestic in its ancient beauty.

Moscow is the center of the Russian state. Serving as a gatherer of Russian lands, it grew and gained power slowly but profoundly and confidently. Here in Moscow different cultures and traditions concentrated and intertwined, solidifying the spiritual power of our multi-ethnic people.

History has confirmed the creative and uniting role of Moscow throughout the centuries. Moscow has rightly earned the respect and veneration it receives from the citizens of Russia.

Times and generations change but a warm, I would even say caring attitude to Moscow is a permanent value, as well as an interest in its development and transformation.

It is one of the most modern megacities in the world. It is open to implementing new extraordinary ideas, to investment in advanced research and bold business projects, to initiatives in culture and urban space development.

Moscow is a center of attraction for gifted, hardworking and educated people who can cope with the fast and intense rhythm of the capital. For those who are moving forward, towards success, results and professional growth.

Russian President Vladimir Putin. 870th anniversary of Moscow.

Prompt introduction of advanced technologies, effective development instruments, reliance on the residents’ initiative and intellectual and creative potential have become Moscow’s landmarks.
A large-scale reconstruction is underway here now. It was embarked on in line with the status of one of the world’s largest metropolises. Its priority goal is to enhance the comfort and quality of life of Moscow residents.

Reconstruction is always a difficult and troublesome matter, much like home renovation. It must begin sooner or later, and it is good that Moscow authorities have taken it up so resolutely while heeding residents’ advice.

Friends, the energy of Moscow’s renovation, its infrastructure and social projects have a tremendous significance for our country. The capital has always been at the forefront, it can achieve its ambitious goals. And today, as ever, Muscovites are at their best.

I wish you all the very best and hope that you will continue to boldly move forward. Health and well-being to you!

Greetings on Moscow Day!

Congratulations on Steelworker Day.

Vladimir Putin congratulated workers and veterans of mining and smelting enterprises of Russia on their professional holiday – Steelworker Day.


The message reads, in part:

“Well coordinated and efficient work of all levels of the mining and smelting complex is crucial for the development of our national economy, industry, social sphere and increasing the country’s defense capabilities. This is why your work, which requires deep knowledge, special qualifications and a responsible approach to your work, enjoys well-deserved respect in our society.

It is gratifying to emphasize that the current generation of workers of this mining and smelting complex carefully and genuinely artistically honor the experience and traditions of their predecessors.

Today we face serious, important challenges, the most important of which is the need to attract additional investment in order to modernize our production facilities, extend the range of products we offer with higher value added, and create new, modern work places.

And, of course, we need to fully engage the powerful potential of the industry so we can implement large-scale, in-demand projects that are aimed at developing Russia’s regions.”
