Greetings on 75th anniversary of National Research Centre Kurchatov Institute

April 12, 2018

Vladimir Putin congratulated the staff and veterans of National Research Centre Kurchatov Institute on its 75th anniversary.

The message reads, in part:

“The Institute’s establishment was a significant milestone for our country, setting the main development vector for research and strategic industries for decades to come. You have every right to be proud of the outstanding researchers, academics, engineers, constructors and specialists, and their discoveries and spectacular achievements. The nuclear reactors designed by this institute are used in the manufacturing, shipbuilding, medicine, space and defence sectors, symbolising the power of our country and serving as an example of true teamwork and professional commitment of the Institute’s staff to national undertakings.

It is gratifying that today you are building on the wonderful traditions set by your predecessors. Being at the forefront of scientific research, you work to deliver on objectives that are critical for the future of Russia and all of humanity. The fact that the results of your fundamental pioneering research find their way into real life deserves praise. This approach meets the requirements of our time, and enables our country to succeed and achieve a breakthrough in its development.”
