The message reads, in part:
“Over the past years, the concern has grown into a major, steadily developing structure with serious scientific, production, personnel and creative potential. Due in large part to its talented scientists, designers, engineers and skilled experts, the corporation is rightfully considered one of the flagships of the Russian defence industry, holding leading positions in creating air and space defence equipment, and manufacturing high-quality and high-technology civilian products.
It is important that today, amid unprecedented external pressure, Almaz-Antey not only preserves, but also builds up its technological and production capacities, successfully fulfils the state defence order, and makes an important contribution to the import substitution programme.
I am certain that you will continue to solve the tasks at hand, as well as nurture and multiply the wonderful traditions of your predecessors. Thank you for your selfless work and dedication.”
