20 May

Metropolitan Dionisy of Voskresensk, Administrator of the Moscow Patriarchate, read out a greeting from Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia to the participants in the Group of Strategic Vision "Russia-Islamic World" meeting.

"Centuries-old traditions are the true wealth of our country, the guarantee of well-being and the harmonious development of society. I am glad to testify to the fact that fruitful cooperation has taken shape between the Muslim ummah of Russia and the Russian Orthodox Church, aimed at strengthening the traditional foundations and establishing high moral ideals in the minds of our compatriots. I would like to note with gratitude the great personal contribution of the leadership of Tatarstan to the development of these relations, special attention to issues of interethnic and interfaith harmony in the region, as well as their care for Orthodox residents of the republic and their support of initiatives of the Tatarstan Metropolis, which have spiritual, moral and educational significance. I wish all the participants in these celebrations the help of the Almighty and blessed success in their labors."
