Lukashenko congratulates Patriarch Kirill on Easter
The President of Belarus has extended congratulations to His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia
I cordially congratulate you on the Resurrection of Christ.
The Easter holiday reminds all believers of the fateful day that changed the history of mankind: life and light triumphed over death and darkness. People began to build their future, drawing strength from an inexhaustible source of Christian traditions.
Orthodoxy is still a powerful unifying power for Belarus and Russia today. We are proud of the faith of our ancestors, the common pages of history, culture, and science.
May your prayers continue to strengthen the friendship, peace and harmony of our fraternal peoples.
Please accept, Your Holiness, my sincerest wishes of good health and God's help in all good deeds.
Christ is risen!
With deep respect,
President of the Republic of Belarus Aleksandr Lukashenko
