President Maia Sandu, handed out state awards to several personalities from Moldova – performance athletes, coaches, people of culture, researchers, teachers and agricultural workers.
“We have thus honored the performance and successes these people have achieved in their professional activity. I mentioned that, in a difficult year for all of us, the best response we can give to evil is the good things we do every day – working honestly, taking care of our neighbors, contributing to the well-being of the country and the good her name. This is what each of the decorated ones did, with dedication, effort and involvement. At home or abroad, in the field or in the laboratory, on the stage, in the ring or in the classroom, they worked to do good and bring joy, so that development is stronger than destruction,” said Maia Sandu.
