Rector Konstantin Markelov Sends His Greetings on Defender of the Fatherland Day
Dear male veterans, staff members, students and Ph.D. candidates of Astrakhan State University! Please accept my sincere congratulations on the day of February, 23!
Today we honour those who are committed to their homes and are strong in spirit, who defend our State heroically and selflessly, who use their knowledge and talents for the sake of prosperity of Russia. These qualities are undoubtedly important both in combat conditions and in everyday life. May they defend the interests of our country not on the battlefield but only at the peaceful negotiating table.
I would like to address my special congratulations to the veterans of our university who participated in local conflicts and fought for peace in the world. You serve an example of moral rectitude, devotion and selfless love for the Motherland. I believe that the new generations will be worth of your feat.
Dear men! May you keep corresponding to this distinguished title, be capable of taking up responsibility, be true to your duty and word. I wish you good health, peaceful skies, cozy homes and new frontiers on your professional path!
