“On the first day of February, we came to congratulate a great man – Gusman Ibragimovich Safin – a veteran of the Great Patriotic War, a participant in the breakthrough of the Leningrad blockade. He proved with his whole life that our people commit feats not only in military affairs, but also in work.
I’ve known Gusman Ibragimovich for a long time, this is the man who’s been carrying out his mission, fighting against fascism, his entire life. After the end of the war, he visited many countries with lectures in which he conveyed the main idea – the world should be without fascism. Today he also continues to work with young people, taking part in the development of the veteran movement.
I wish the younger generation took an example from people like Gusman Ibragimovich, we have something to learn from them and we need to look up to them,” the Speaker of the Parliament said.

“I want to note that Gusman Ibragimovich is a representative of a generation that has lived a very difficult life, filled with exploits and events in the name of peace and victory. For us, such people have always been and will be an invaluable example and guideline of how to live, how to love the Homeland and serve it,” the Vice-Chairman of the People’s Council said.
