Alexey Miller extends congratulations to veterans on 71st anniversary of Great Victory

Dear veterans, esteemed colleagues,

On behalf of the Gazprom Management Committee and on my own behalf, I would like to heartily congratulate you on Victory Day.

On this great day, we bow before the heroism of millions of people who saved the world from fascism. The war lasted for as long as 1,418 days, and each and every one of them was a trial. But we persevered and emerged victorious.

Never before had our history seen such mass heroism, such valor and self-sacrifice. Today, every Russian family treasures the memory of those who fought on the front lines and worked on the home front; their awards, photographs, and stories about the Great Patriotic War are handed down through generations.

Dear veterans, please accept our heartfelt gratitude for your fortitude and genuine patriotism. We very cordially wish you good health, happiness, well-being, and long life.

Happy Victory Day to you all!
