MOSCOW, December 27 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulated employees of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations (EMERCOM) on the professional holiday on Thursday.
“For more than 20 years a modern, flexible and efficient system of response to emergency situations and the elimination of the aftermaths of the natural disasters has been operating successfully in our country. For this period of time emergency workers saved hundreds of thousands of people,” the Russian president said in a congratulatory telegram. “Coming for help to people in different Russian regions and the world, emergency workers have always worked urgently, accurately and harmoniously. The sincere gratitude, a high public authority and respect is an award for your difficult work, the highest qualification, valour and selflessness,” the congratulatory telegram runs.
“Today the search for adequate responses to ecological, man-made and social threats of the twenty-first century mainly depends from the Ministry of Emergency Situations,” the president said. “Therefore, it is important to introduce advanced information technologies and state-of-the-art equipment, build up cooperation with foreign partners. To develop the special infrastructure and the warning systems, improve the courses for training and advanced training of rescuers. The enlightenment activities, the cultivation of a careful attitude to the nature, a sweeping propaganda of literacy in life safety should be given close attention,” Putin said in the congratulatory telegram.
“I am convinced that the knowledge, experience and skills to achieve the results in the most difficult conditions will help you to perform your tasks worthily in the future,” Putin underlined.
