Please accept my most sincere congratulations! I despise banalities. Still, I want to wish you one crucial thing, or shall I say event, which I, along with many others who support you, strongly believe.
Your courage, endurance, gallantry and moral purity, unthinkable and unexplicable for ordinary mans brain, impress me more and more. I cannot even find apropriate words to express my feelings. You are truly one of a kind,, theres very few people like you. My strongest desire is to you to jump out of ill luck and get only good luck ever since.
In my mind, let me send you most beautiiful flowers as a gift. Alexey, the courage shown by your family is as impressive as yours. We wish you and your family lots of health and an immense mass of Happiness! We wish you to stay in excellent mood this day and to live through many happy things! You deserve it like no other!
Dmitriy Muratov, editor-in-chief of Novaya Gazeta, my colleagues, both at my paper and from other houses, my parents, friends, in short all of us who support you send you congratulations and encouragements!
Were proud. We support. We wait. With all my respect and warmth of heart,
