MOSCOW, October 20 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s President Vladimir Putin congratulated workers and veterans of the road industry with their professional holiday, celebrated on Sunday, the Kremlin reports on its site on the Internet.
“Your work is honourable and responsible, it is always seen.

You continue modernising the road infrastructures in the country’s regions.”
