NALCHIK, September 18. /TASS/. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin greeted on Sunday a 100 year-old voter in the North Caucasus Aslizhan Sizhazheva on her birthday on Sunday. Besides greetings and presents, the woman received a ballot box to vote at the parliamentary elections, TASS reported from the scene.
The president’s greeting telegram was voiced by Nalchik’s Mayor Arsen Alakayev.
"You belong to the legendary generation of winners and builders, who have passed with honors all the hardships of the war times, who restored the country, who made the base we are using now. Your life, the love for Motherland, the involvement in its fate are great examples for the youth, for all of us. I wish you good health, pep and all the best," Putin said in the greeting.
The long-liver thanked the president and wished to him "success in the work, which takes from Putin much time and effort."
