MOSCOW, February 23 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin waits constructive proposals from the CPRF congress, which opened in Moscow on Saturday.
"I hope the congress will be held in a creative atmosphere and will become an effective ground for fruitful and substantive discussions," Putin said. All constructive proposals and ideas, irrespective of what political or public force presents them, must be supported, he noted in his message to delegates and guests of the congress. It was read out by head of the presidential administration's internal policy department Oleg Morozov.
Russia's future and welfare of people require consolidation and responsible partnership for the sake of common objectives of national development, Putin said in the greeting message.
