The anniversary is time to sum up the results and to set tasks for the future, Victor Zubkov told in his speech. The main result of today is preservation of economic stability in the region. On the majority of industrial parameters in Karelia the pre-crisis level is restored. Growth of production is observed. It promotes improvement of the situation in social sphere of the republic. Incomes of the population, average wages in real terms grow. I take a chance to congratulate all the citizens of the republic on the anniversary, to wish good luck, happiness, health and preservation of good traditions started by Peter the Great!

Head of the Republic Sergey Katanandov has once again congratulated all the citizens of Karelia on the anniversary:

It is a great honor for us to celebrate the anniversary in the presence of guests so eminent, numerous delegations from friendly regions, Sergey Katanandov said. Our anniversary is included in the number of federal holidays and is celebrated in pursuance of the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation. The anniversary itself, construction and reconstruction of all objects, became possible, first of all, thanks to support of the state. I regard it as a sign of respect for the republic, a sign of support of all northerners who live and work in very difficult conditions, as a stimulus of further development of Karelia
