Congratulations of High Commissioner on the day of the Russian Press

Dear journalists, editors, employees of printing enterprises and publishing houses!

I congratulate you on the professional holiday — the Day of the Russian Press!

Three centuries ago, Peter the Great, establishing the first Russian newspaper Vedomosti, understood: the word will help to reform and strengthen the Russian State. This role of the press is still actual today: newspapers, news agencies and Internet portals are not just mass-media. This is one of the leading institutions of civil society, one of the important links between society and power.

The profession of a journalist is in demand in our society. They listen to you, expect full and objective information from you. A clear civic position, non-indifference to what is happening, openness to the new, the desire to "get to the core" has always remained your distinctive characteristics.

You carry important and necessary information, which allows to navigate in modern conditions. By your labor you uphold the most important human right — the right to freedom of speech. The press is the spokesman of public sentiments, a camertone of civil society and an intermediary between the State and citizens.

The work of journalists is complex and responsible, because you have one of the most powerful tools is the word in your hands. Bringing objective, comprehensive and operative information to the public, you do not forget about your high social mission — to help people find answers to the most pressing and actual issues of our time, to protect their rights and freedoms.

I wish you inspiration, successful implementation of new projects and bright creative works. Stay always interesting and in demand. Wish you great circulations, high ratings and new achievements!

Happiness and prosperity to you and your loved ones!
