Congratulations to academician Andrei Kaprina with the Victory day!

Dear friends, comrades, colleagues and, of course, our dear veterans – the Defenders of the Fatherland! I heartily congratulate You with Victory day!

75 years ago ended the Great Patriotic war. Not a war that spared no one family -- a War that claimed the lives of more than 26 million of our fellow citizens... the War, which brought untold hardship, suffering, sorrow, sacrifice and loss.

Many of our great teachers, our senior colleagues - the staff of the Moscow research oncological Institute named after Gertsen from the first day of the outbreak of hostilities was called to war, and many went to the front as volunteers.

They were in the thick of the war, they dug trenches, fought on all fronts of the Soviet Army, carried the wounded off the field ill, day and night operated under the roar of bullets and shells, saving the soldiers and commanders to bring them back in line.

Our Institute has its immortal regiment! Here are just some of their names! Georgi Avdeev, Agnes Bazhenova Vera Gorodilova, Yuri Gritsman, Kira Daniel-Bek Ekaterina Kiseleva. It with the 2nd Belorussian front reached Berlin, and painted on the walls of the Reichstag!

The Institute deployed a military hospital.

For his exemplary work for treatment of wounded soldiers,

for military merit, for their selfless work caring for seriously-wounded soldiers for their valor, helping to carry the wounded from the battlefield, for the excellent surgical activity in combat - all of our elders were awarded orders and medals, high state awards!

The bright memory of him!

We – your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren will always be proud of You! You showed us how to love and defend your Homeland!

Thanks to the power of the spirit, courage, indomitable Will and Faith of our fathers and grandfathers dealt a crushing blow to the enemy, having obtained the long-awaited Victory!

Today the whole world and our country inNov is on the verge of a new war, the war with the enemy is invisible, inaudible and cunning.

Follow Your heroic example of courage and perseverance, patience and commitment, there can be no doubt that we will prevail in this battle, we will defeat this enemy! We do not disgrace You, our great teachers, and Victory will be surely ours!

Our dear veterans!
