MOSCOW, December 10. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin told a state awards ceremony on Thursday that unity and cohesion make the Russian people stronger.
"Today, it is unity and cohesion that make us stronger," Putin said at the Kremlin ceremony.
"Time constantly brings us new challenges and tests our unity for strength and readiness to protect and assert our national interests together," the Russian leader said, noting the need to see value in Russian history and its lessons, and to "rely on traditions of brotherhood and consent that unite our multi-ethnic people".
Russians always had "belief in the right and justice" and "could move forward and overcome all differences in the name of love for the Motherland," he said, thanking the laureates for their contribution to strengthening the country, society at large and solving the key tasks ahead.
