November 20, 2022

Vladimir Putin sent birthday greetings to Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia.

The message reads in part:

”As the Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church, you direct your efforts towards preserving the traditional spiritual and moral values in society, harmonising interfaith and interethnic relations, and improving cooperation between the church and the state. Your wise pastoral word serves to consolidate the nation and supports people at a time of trials.“
