Dear Dmitry Anatolyevich,

Please accept my heartfelt congratulations on a landslide victory of the United Russia party, which is headed by you, in the election to the State Duma of the Russian Federation.

This victory is the manifestation of high confidence of the people of Russia in your party and its consistent and far-sighted policy towards strengthening statehood, maintaining stability, establishing democratic values and improving the well-being of the country’s population.

I am confident that our joint efforts will contribute to the development of traditionally friendly relations and the deepening of cooperation and mutual activity of Azerbaijan and Russia in the best interests of our two peoples in the coming years.

Dear Dmitry Anatolyevich, taking this opportunity I wish you robust health, happiness and every success in your state activities for the benefit of the friendly Russia.
