The telegram reads, in part:
“I note with satisfaction that over its many years of existence, the movement of student construction brigades has made a worthy contribution to the building of Russia’s economic capacity and has addressed key national challenges. Therefore, it is important that these traditions are continued and enriched with new labour victories and achievements. This is evidenced by the active and efficient participation of young people in the construction of the Power of Siberia main gas pipeline. This major infrastructure project is strategically important for Russia and the development of Siberia and the Far East and serves to foster international cooperation.
I believe that you will have a productive work shift, gain practical experience and that you will test your durability and that of your character. And, of course, you will definitely meet new friends and like-minded people.”
The Chayanda oil, gas and condensate field, discovered in 1983, is one of the largest in eastern Russia. It is the main field for the development of the Yakutia gas production center and a resource base for the Power of Siberia gas pipeline and gas supply to the settlements of Yakutia and other regions of the Far East.
