Our dear veterans, participants in the Great Patriotic War, both on the frontline and on the home front, children of the wartime!
Dear colleagues and friends

With profound gratitude towards the generation of our forefathers and fathers, I wholeheartedly congratulate everyone on the 75th anniversary of the Victory!

The Victory Day is a great holiday, which brings together all the generations of our country. Every family has their own soldiers and heroes. And the memory of them is cherished and held sacred. We remember acts of valor of our heroic warriors who defended liberty and independence of our Motherland. We remember how many of them died in the war and did not come back home! We are proud of their courage and fortitude, perseverance, dedicated service to their country, faith in the victory! Today, they march along with us in the monolithic Immortal Regiment, with their impressive faces in black-and-white photos and lists of fronts and awards.

An invaluable contribution to the Victory was made by the staff of our company. It was in special design bureaus for convicts of the Stalins time that S.P. Korolev was working on the development of Pe-2 and Tu-2 bombers and innovative jet engines for aircraft, and V.P. Glushko was in charge of work to develop engines for aircraft, including rocket engines. The personnel manager at OKB-1, and later, for many years, the deputy general director of NPO Energia for personnel G.M. Paukov went through the Japanese and Great Patriotic Wars as a senior instructor of torpedo men on a submarine in the Pacific fleet. The designer of spacecraft, cosmonaut K.P. Feoktistov went on reconnaissance missions when he was just a 16-year old teenager.

Some of the rank-and-file employees of the company travelled the roads of war, fought on the frontline, hammered the enemy on land, in the water, and in the air! Many people fought for the Victory by working day and night on the shop floor making superior zenith and tank guns and artillery systems.

We will never forget that out of the five prestigious awards, the first Order of Lenin was given to RSC Energia during war in 1944 for guns designed by Grabin, which would come to be called the Weapons of Victory.

Fewer and fewer of those who fought on the fronts of the Great Patriotic War, survived the Siege of Leningrad, and did their utmost working on the home front remain amongst us. Very few of the Great Patriotic War participants still remain at Energia: 13 people at the Corporation and 13 at ZEM manufacturing plant. Only 7 survivors of the Siege: 6 people at the Corporation and 1 at the plant. There are 16 former prisoners of fascist concentration camps, 12 former workers at ZEM and 4 corporate employees. Among our staff there are somewhat higher numbers of workers on the home front, who had to start their working careers when they were still mere children. There are 92 of them at the Corporation and 161 at ZEM. Our deepest gratitude to you, heroes of war!

Dear veterans, you have to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Victory under the difficult conditions of self-isolation, but are there any circumstances in the world that could break your will and enthusiasm for life? Keep your chin up, do not lose your optimism, be in good health! I wish you love and care of your dear and near ones, peaceful skies, happiness, and prosperity! Let your generation of victors remain an example for the future generations! Congratulations on the Victory Day!

General director of RSC Energia N.N. Sevastianov
