I am very pleased that here today, in such a special atmosphere, is awarded the prize "Breakthrough". You know, we're really working hard to ensure that our state has become another – more modern, has become economically developed, not only at the expense of the natural resources we have, not only due to oil and gas, although it is good that we have it. That we were strong not only missiles (although very good that we have them, they help us to maintain our strength), but also due today, as they say, knowledge-based economy. And this knowledge-based economy must conform to the state. The state must also change – change every day. Changing political system, the economy, our democratic institutions. These requirements must be present you: it should be changed by your requirements. And I would like again to everyone who is present here, from those who have so ardently supported his countrymen, from those who supported all the winners, congratulations to the winners of these wonderful prizes.
I would say that, despite the end of Year of Youth, the development that we are entering now, it does not involve some year. We will do everything we do, we will make our country strong, powerful, and it needs your energy, the energy of young people – those who sits in this room, those who today welcomed the winners. I am sure that we will achieve new victories. I congratulate you and wish you good luck. *** It is gratifying that the President's speech might disassemble from the standpoint of rhetorical elementary.
