MOSCOW, January 7 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Vladimir Putin has congratulated Orthodox Christians and all Russian citizens celebrating Christmas, the Kremlin press service said on Monday.
“This holiday has been bringing the light of belief, hope and love for centuries. It unites us around traditional moral values that play a special role in Russia’s history and serve as a pillar of our society,” he said in his message of congratulation. “Christmas days are the time of charity and mercy, sincere attention to those who need our support and care.”
“The Russian Orthodox Church and other Christian confessions actively participate in the country’s life. Their interaction with state and non-governmental structures strengthens, interreligious dialogue develops and great attention is paid to social service, educational and awareness-raising initiatives, the upbringing of youth and family support. Such fruitful and multifaceted work deserves deep recognition and respect,” Putin said.
