The head of state addressed the participants of the All-Russian Women's Forum organized at the Russia exhibition.

“Hundreds of women are on the contact line today: these are doctors and nurses, military personnel of various specialties... Thank you for your service, for your perseverance and courage, for your mercy, responsiveness and generosity,” the president said.

During his address to the Federal Assembly, Vladimir Putin noted that the true, real elite of Russia is everyone who serves the country: workers and warriors, reliable, proven, who have proven their devotion by deed.
