Greetings to women on International Women’s Day from the Head of the Federal Agency for Fisheries

Dear women, mothers, grandmothers, sisters, wives of cadets and crew members of our expedition vessels
Please accept my heartfelt greetings on International Women’s Day.

Today being on board of the Kruzenshtern I would like to emphasize that sea brings up professional and strong-minded people. The job of a seafarer is hard but living ashore while waiting for your loved ones is certainly not easier.

There are women-participants of the expedition and female cadets on board. Marine professions have long ceased to be a male preserve.

Thank you for being there, thank you for waiting, thank you for the inspiration you give for new victories and achievements.

Thank you for supporting those who make a memorial trip under sail.

Be happy and loved!
