The message reads, in part:
“I am glad to note that your project, aimed at strengthening the institution of the family and promoting high spiritual and moral values in society, has united like-minded people from all regions of Russia around its ideas; people who want to share their family and parental experience and to meet and talk with other participants.
This is proven by the number of applications received in the different categories of the competition, with Large Family being the most popular. These examples of happy family life and responsible parenting are very important.
They provide excellent guidance to our young people and continue the ancient traditions of parental self-sacrifice that Russia has always been proud of. The more families live in harmony and mutual understanding, the stronger and more humane our society is and the more secure its future.
Let me note that supporting motherhood and childhood, as well as providing a good level and quality of life for Russian families, are among the main state priorities.”
