I greet the appearance of the first Bolshevik technical newspaper.

The newspaper Tekhnika must become a powerful instrument of the broad masses of workers, business executives and engineering and technical personnel for mastering technique. It must help the Party to forge further hundreds of thousands of technicians and engineers from people of the working class — fighters for Bolshevik tempos.

I wish the newspaper every success.

J. Stalin
