The message reads, in part:
“Over the years, the movement has united tens of thousands of volunteers around its noble objectives. These dedicated people share a sincere love for our Motherland. They are wholeheartedly engaged in significant and much needed work and search for the remains of the fallen service personnel in various Russian regions, including Donbass. They help the families of these people learn about the fate of their loved ones, bring back the names of fallen heroes from oblivion and look after military memorials and burial sites.
I would like to note that your diverse and truly selfless efforts and your proactive involvement in such large-scale projects as No Statute of Limitations and #WeStandWithDonbass have tremendous significance for the state and society and for the patriotic education of the younger generation. Of course, members of the movement who are now defending Russia at the frontline, shoulder to shoulder with their comrades-in-arms, deserve the most profound respect.”
