Kirsan Ilyumzhinov congratulates his young readers on Student's Day

As we know, the history of the Day of the Holy Martyr Tatyana as a Student’s Day began in the 18th century, when Empress Elizabeth signed the “Decree on the establishment of a university and two gymnasiums in Moscow” on January 25, 1755. Currently, this holiday is celebrated not only by believers, but also by students every year on January 25.

Sometimes it seems to me that being a student is not easy today. Maybe the pandemic is to blame with its distance learning, maybe there are other reasons. But what is important, in my opinion, is this: in our difficult time, as always, Russia needs good doctors, talented teachers, qualified geologists and engineers. Study, comprehend the basics and essence of the chosen professions, build the foundation of your life. Nobody will do it for you! I am proud of Kalmykia’s students and the tenacity with which they storm the summits of science! 


I sincerely congratulate all students on the holiday of young dreams, new knowledge and interesting hobbies! I wish every day to be full of new goals, aspirations, great ideas, funny stories and personal victories. May your student years be happy, may knowledge and tireless enthusiasm lead to a beloved and prestigious profession! And be sure to play chess! And life will get better, you'll see!
