MOSCOW, March 6. /TASS/. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin greeted the first woman in space - cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova on her birthday on Sunday, the Kremlin said.
Tereshkova turns 79.
"You quite correctly are considered to be a bright, extraordinary personality, a true legend of the Russian and world aerospace," the greeting reads.
