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

The message reads in part:

“Your long-time responsible service, concern for the well-being of Russian citizens, efforts to strengthen traditional spiritual, moral and family values as well as your incredible peace-making mission have won you sincere and unlimited respect in Russia and abroad. You work tirelessly for the sake of enlightenment and charity, devoting tremendous attention to maintaining interreligious and interdenominational dialogue and facilitating cooperation between the Church and the state.”
