The congratulations reads, in particular:
“I warmly congratulate Russian Muslims on the end of the fast during the sacred month of Ramadan.
Over centuries the holiday Uraza-bairam (Eid ul-Fitr) has symbolised people's aspirations to moral perfection, mercy and compassion. Toleration, peace, neighbourly relations and caring for others have always been essential for Russian Muslims.
I am confident that you will further help strengthen agreement and mutual understanding between representatives of various faiths, universal values and ideals, charity's best traditions and providing help for those who require it.”
