The message reads, in part:
“You are justly proud of your beautiful ancient land, the home of skilled masters and fearless warriors. You cherish your inimitable culture, language and customs and remain firmly committed to the noble ideals of patriotism and faithful service to the Motherland, which your fathers and grandfathers entrusted to you. Today, during the ongoing special military operation, heroic Chechen men are fighting valiantly and heroically, side by side with their comrades in arms, to defend Russia.
I would like to note that over the past years the republic has been working consistently to attain the highly important goals of the region’s socioeconomic development, support businesses and improve the quality of people’s lives.
I am convinced that diligence, concern for your native land and a sincere desire to contribute to its prosperity, mutual respect and accord will continue to help you fulfil the chartered plans in the interests of Chechnya and the whole of Russia.”
