Easter greetings to Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia

April 24, 2022

Vladimir Putin sent greetings to Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia on Easter Sunday.

The message reads, in part:

“During Easter holidays, believers’ hearts are filled with special joy, a desire to do good and to help those in need.

It is gratifying to know that under your guidance the Church is engaging in fruitful interaction with the state, making a tremendous contribution to promoting traditional spiritual, moral and family values in society, educating the younger generation, and strengthening concord and mutual understanding between people in these trying times.

Your Holiness, I wish you spiritual strength and good health for the benefit of the Russian Orthodox Church and all of Russia.”
