Presentation of state awards to medical workers. With President of the Bakulev National Medical Research Center for Cardiovascular Surgery Leonid Antonovich Bokeria

I am sincerely glad to meet you and to personally present you with state awards. In your person, I would like to thank all the doctors, all medical workers – people who take care of our health every day, for choosing medicine as their life’s work and giving it all their energy, knowledge and time. It is a very difficult and very important profession to heal people. Whatever position the medical workers occupy, they are always on duty, ready to help at any moment, both during working hours and in private. Caring for the sick is always the main thing for each of you.

The awarding of doctors is traditionally held on the eve of the Day of the Medical Worker. But now is a special situation. Today, doctors, paramedics, nurses, orderlies are really at the forefront. Every day they save hundreds of human lives, fight death in the “red zone”, without sleep or rest, for a long time without seeing their own family. They help patients not only with coronavirus, but also with other equally dangerous diseases.

Not everyone can do such work, it requires high qualifications, full dedication, responsibility and, of course, a strong character. After all, it is emotionally difficult to see human suffering every day, and you also need to find kind words for each patient. We are sincerely proud and admire your courage and fortitude. It is impossible to defeat the coronavirus without you, your dedication. We all value you very much for this. And we will always remember your colleagues who gave their lives to save the sick. They will forever remain in the memory of thousands of people who live thanks to them.

List of recipients of state awards, 22 October 2020

In honor of all medical workers and volunteers, the President decided to establish separate state awards – this is the Pirogov Order and the Luka Krymsky Medal. It is a great honor for me to present them to you today.

Among those who receive awards are leaders of medical organizations, doctors, nurses and ambulance drivers. Outstanding doctors and scientists have been awarded the Order of Merit for the Fatherland for their significant contribution to the development of healthcare and medical science. We will also present other awards of the Russian Federation.

Dear friends!

Nikolai Ivanovich Pirogov, a Russian surgeon, after whom the order we are presenting is named, said that living in this world means constantly fighting and constantly winning. You are fighting not even for your own life, but for the lives of people who trust you, providing medical care, working on medicines, conducting research. This is doubly difficult. Let in your struggle there will be only victories without defeats.

I wish you good health, success, prosperity, new professional achievements. And so that people do not get sick.

Let’s get down to the awards ceremony.
