March 6, 2021

Vladimir Putin sent birthday greetings to Valentina Tereshkova, pilot-cosmonaut and Hero of the Soviet Union.

The message reads, in part:

“Your life and professional career deserve the deepest respect. You are the world’s first woman to have conquered space who wrote heroic and unforgettable pages in our nation’s history.

It is gratifying that through the years your knowledge, experience and earnest desire to be involved in the future of our Fatherland have been essential for important public and legislative activities.”
