MOSCOW, December 31. /TASS/. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin called on Russians to team up for the country’s successful development and changes for the better, and emphasized the importance of supporting those, who need help. The president said this in his New Year’s address, which was broadcast in a number of Russia’s regions celebrating 2019 first.
“We are looking forward to the beginning of New Year’s Day with excitement and hope, we see enthusiastic eyes of the little ones, feel how parents and grandparents are glad if the whole family is together at this moment and their hearts are warmed with sensitivity and attention and we understand that this is New Year’s magic and our spiritual generosity creates it,” Putin said in his address made several days ago and broadcast several minutes before midnight in Kamchatka, in the Russian Far East.
“It is in demand both on holidays and on weekdays, when we support those who need help, those who are lonely or sick, because there’s really no other people’s trouble, and mercy always returns with kindness and gives joy of sharing,” the president said.
Putin noted that on New Year’s eve everyone usually makes wishes that “the relatives are healthy, that consent reigns in the house, children bring joy, life is peaceful and dreams, even the most cherished ones, surely come true” and also hopes for good luck. “Nevertheless, we know for sure that the best for ourselves, for our family and native country can be only achieved through our own efforts and joint coordinated work,” the president stressed.
“We have to solve many pressing tasks in economy, science and technology, healthcare, education and culture, and most importantly, step by step we will strive to improve the well-being and quality of life so that all citizens of Russia and all of us feel changes for the better in the coming year,” Putin said.
“We can do this only together,” he said, noting: “We have never had and will never have any assistants, and that’s why it’s important for us to be a united, single and strong team.” “And let friendship and good hopes that unite everyone now accompany us in the future and help in work and achieving common goals,” Putin said.
The president congratulated Russians on New Year’s Day and called to wish happiness to those, who are near and “open their hearts towards each other.” “That’s because when millions of people have such bright feelings, the world is filled with love and trust,” he said, wishing the country’s citizens happiness and well-being, and success and prosperity to Russia.
