Congratulations on the Defender of the Fatherland Day!

Dear students, faculty and staff members!

I sincerely congratulate you on the Defender of the Fatherland Day! 23 February is a special day in the history of our country. The peoples of Russia know well what peace is and how difficult it is sometimes to keep it. On such a day, when we remember the merits of our ancestors – those who represent an example of courage, dedication and honor, – we also rethink our place in history, by small victories strive to confirm daily the loyalty and devotion to our Fatherland and sincere love for our country.

I am sure that every one of you is an honorable defender of your family, friends, team, takes care of your neighbor and is always willing to help those who are in need. Doing that is the foundation of those cultural values that constitute the moral and aesthetic ideals of the people of Russia.

Gubkin University continues the glorious tradition of educating true defenders. Students receive strategically important knowledge during their training at the Military Training Center and acquire valuable moral and ethical qualities through participation in socially significant University projects.

I sincerely congratulate you on this Day, and wish you good health, family well-being, and success in professional endeavors!

Viktor Martynov
Rector of Gubkin University
