Greetings to Russian Muslims on Eid al-Adha

July 20, 2021

Vladimir Putin congratulated Russia’s Muslims on the occasion of Eid al-Adha.

The message reads, in part:

“This ancient holiday, which was first marked centuries ago, reminds the believers about the roots and values of Islam, encouraging mercy, justice, virtue and a warm-hearted attitude towards others. These noble humanitarian and moral ideals, which form the basis of all of the world’s religions, have a huge unifying force, helping to strengthen interethnic accord in society and to preserve the cultural diversity and indigenous traditions of our nation.”
