May 1, 2016

Vladimir Putin congratulated Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia on Easter.

The message reads, in part:

“The great holiday of Easter turns us to spiritual values of Orthodoxy, gives sincere joy and consolidates faith in the triumph of justice.

It is satisfying to note that under you leadership the Russian Orthodox Church is actively and creatively involved in the country’s public life, puts efforts into educating the young generation, charity and education and develops constructive cooperation with the state and other traditional religions of our country.”
