March 6, 2016

Vladimir Putin congratulated pilot-cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova, the world’s first woman in space and a Hero of the Soviet Union, on her birthday.

The message reads, in part:

“You are rightly considered an outstanding, extraordinary personality, a true legend of the national and world cosmonautics. Your strong character, profound knowledge and a proactive stance in life and civic activities have always helped you achieve your goals and fully realise your rich professional and creative potential.”
