“Christmas draws us to the timeless values of kindness and love,” Dmitry Medvedev’s message reads. “For centuries, these values have served to strengthen the moral principles and unity of the Russian people. And throughout all time, they have helped Russia overcome any challenge and maintain peace and harmony throughout our land.
Even in modern times, these values serve as a foundation for peaceful, constructive life for our society and further development in Russia.
I hope that this Christmas will bring everyone confidence, joy, and hope.”
Dmitry Medvedev and Svetlana Medvedeva attended a Christmas service held at the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour.
