“Dear colleagues, friends, and students, 25 January is a remarkable day for Voronezh. This is the day when our beautiful and glorious city was liberated from the Nazi invaders. The defenders of the city fought for it and shed their blood for it for 212 days. We will never forget this. I wish everyone good health and ask you to talk to young people every day and tell them about the heroic dead of the Soviet people who saved the world from the invaders. My congratulations to you!”
