Greetings to Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia on his Name Day

May 24, 2020

Vladimir Putin congratulated Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia on his Name Day.

The message reads, in part:

“You have committed yourself to pastoral and spiritual educational mission and have been faithfully serving the Russian Orthodox Church, people and the Fatherland for many years. Your tireless efforts to uphold the unshakable spiritual and moral ideals and family values, as well as educating the younger generation, have garnered you the deepest respect. And of course, let us not forget your significant contribution to enhancing centuries-long historical, cultural and patriotic traditions in which our country rightfully takes pride.”
