New Year's address of the governor of the Ulyanovsk region Sergey Morozov
Dear countrymen! The whole year again flew by like a single instant. As if it was yesterday we opened a new kindergarten in Dimitrovgrad, as if a week ago the renewed Il-78 tanker, made at Aviastar, made its first flight, only 26 new buses were handed to our schoolchildren last month ... But this happened a year ago!This year was another milestone in the development of our wind energy cluster - we launched the first wind park of the Finnish company Fortum with 35 MW and started building the second one with 50 MW. It is being mounted now.
This year we have opened a governor's lyceum for thousands of children in the South-Western microdistrict, new kindergartens, gyms.
This year, the Ulyanovsk region has become the venue for the Valentina Leontyeva Film Festival, the forums “Russia is a Sports Power” and “Engineers of the Future”, we helped to adequately host the World Cup. Each of these events is your merit, dear fellow countrymen, your direct participation, your professionalism. Thank you so much for your work, for your sincere love for your small Motherland.
In the passing year, we were again proud of our agricultural workers - they again harvested more than a million tons of grain! Quite recently, we opened a modern cattle-breeding complex with 1200 heads - and these are new jobs, revenues to the local budget, the creation of infrastructure, that is, everything that makes the village transformed, attracting young people. We have developed a set of support programs for them that include financial assistance and powerful social projects, such as “Zemsky Physician”, “Zemsky Paramedic”, and payments to young teachers.
This year we have signed 15 investment agreements, put into operation 8 new-type enterprises with an investment of 10 billion rubles, which have already created 700 jobs. A large joint Russian-Chinese medical project is being implemented in the Industrial Park Platform, and in the near future the Irkut Corporation will start building an aircraft customization center.
Of course, each of the branches of our large farm has something to say, there is something to enter into the new 2019 year. For example, the biggest event of the year was the opening of the federal perinatal center "Mama". Over the entire period of the medical institution, more than two thousand children have already been born here, including 32 twins and triplets. The Dimitrovgrad Nuclear Medical Center will be a good gift for the New Year, not only for Ulyanovsk, but also for all Russians. We place a lot of hopes on it - from the creation of infrastructure to the treatment of the most complicated diseases.
Dear friends! We are entering the year of 2019 with new prospects and with confidence that we are able to solve most of the objectives that time sets before us. I am convinced that together we will definitely realize all the most ambitious plans! Dream it! May what today seems an unattainable fantasy, tomorrow will be the world in which our children will be happy. After all, it is in them that our future, for the sake of who we all live. May in the New Year's Eve the warmest, most beautiful wishes for relatives, friends, and our native land be said in every home, in every family. And may they all come true! Successful creative work to you! Good health! Well-being! I wish you great happiness and love, dear countrymen!
