Putin congratulates Orthodox Christians, all Russians on Easter

“The great feast of Easter evokes best feelings in the hearts of millions of believers and unites them around the eternal spiritual values of Orthodoxy and centuries-old historical and cultural traditions of our people,” the head of state said in a message published by the Kremlin press service.

Putin commended the spiritual, moral and social mission of the Russian Orthodox Church.

“On this festive day, I will certainly note the enormous formative role of the Russian Orthodox Church in the field of education, charity, strengthening of moral foundations of society and mentoring of the younger generation. The Church has been doing a lot to resolve social issues and to preserve inter-ethnic and inter-religious peace in the country. This multifaceted, important work deserves a profound, sincere recognition,” the president said.
