MOSCOW, March 7 (Itar-Tass) —— Head of the Federation of Russian Jewish Communities Alexander Boroda congratulated Vladimir Putin on the election as Russian president.
He said with confidence that “Russian citizens paid tribute to the real results of the work” of the prime minister during the whole period of his political career.
“All of us could find these results realized in our daily life: people in Russia really started to live better, they became confident in tomorrow,” Boroda noted. “More than 60% of votes are a graphical evidence that most Russian citizens vote not for some abstract notions and empty promises, but for the power, which creates favourable conditions for the life and work,” he pointed out.
The head of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia voiced the special gratitude for what Putin is doing “to harmonize interethnic and interreligious relations in Russia.” “Your uncompromised attitude to any manifestations of anti-Semitism and xenophobia should set an example for all people,” Boroda believes.
“I am convinced that your presidency will be marked with the positive development of the Jewish community and other ethnic communities in Russia. We hope sincerely that this will continue the tendency for the growth in mutual respect and religious tolerance in the society,” Boroda said in the congratulatory message.
Vladimir Putin was elected as Russian president, gaining 63.60% of votes at the presidential elections on March 4.
