Today, we pay tribute to all who bear the proud title of Defender of the Fatherland: from gray-haired veterans bedecked with awards and medals to young people who have only recently put on military uniform.
Defender of the Fatherland Day is a symbol of courage, valor, honor, and loyalty to duty, which reflects the unbreakable bond of time and generations, the continuity of traditions, and will of the people of Russia to defend our homeland. It unites those who stand guard over its territorial integrity and national interests, and those who strengthen the glory and power of our country through peaceful labor and military service.
Dear men, please accept our heartfelt congratulations from Vnukovo International Airport! We wish you determination and fortitude, strength and wisdom, self-confidence and success in achieving your goals. May there be prosperity in every home, happiness in every family, and peace and stability in our native land!
