Russian President Vladimir Putin noted the efficiency and great potential for the development of the country’s mining and metallurgical complex in his congratulations on the 65th anniversary of metallurgy. The message was published on the Kremlin website.

„I would like to note that qualified specialists have always worked in the domestic mining and metallurgical complex, who know their job perfectly, understand the full responsibility of the tasks they face. And today, despite the difficult situation caused by illegitimate sanctions of a number of Western countries, the industry demonstrates efficiency and great potential for development,” the text of the telegram says.

Putin also noted the importance of entering new markets, building production and supply chains, maintaining workforces and improving the well-being of miners and metallurgists.

“I am sure that, relying on strong professional traditions, you will successfully cope with these challenges and implement your plans,” the president added.
