Lukashenko, Putin talk to large family of reindeer herders by phone

MINSK, 12 April (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko and Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke by phone with a large family of reindeer herders from the Kremlin, BelTA has learned.

The large Pyak family are reindeer herders living in the tundra of Yamal. Enksya and Zoya Pyak are celebrating the 50th anniversary of their marriage, and the presidents took the opportunity to wish them a happy wedding anniversary. 

The event was also attended by cosmonauts Marina Vasilevskaya and Oleg Novitsky. 

"We have guests here. The first female cosmonaut of Belarus, and the Belarusian president. Today we celebrate the Cosmonautics Day. Together we wish a happy golden wedding anniversary to you. And your whole big family. We wish you all the best and every success. I hope to see you again. I know that one of your grandchildren wants to watch the launch of a spacecraft. We will definitely make your grandson's wish come true," Vladimir Putin said and gave the floor to the Belarusian head of state. 

"I also join the congratulations from the Russian president. Golden wedding. It is a big deal and a rare occasion today. A good occasion. Vladimir Vladimirovich told me in detail about your meeting at VDNKh," Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

He also expressed confidence that the space officials will invite their family to see the most beautiful thing - the launch of a spacecraft. 

"I thank Vladimir Putin for the invitation to join this conversation. For me, it is very symbolic and important to talk to people who are far, far away and who are engaged in this kind and good business as reindeer breeding. Good luck to you! Long trouble-free years to you and your children and grandchildren. Reindeer herding is a rare profession indeed. Thank you very much. I wish you success and happiness," the Belarusian leader added.
