Russian President Vladimir Putin has congratulated Russia’s Muslims on Eid al-Adha. In his message of congratulations posted on the Kremlin’s website on Tuesday, the president highlighted the values of Islam that serve to strengthen interethnic harmony and preserve Russia’s cultural diversity, APA reports citing TASS.

"This ancient holiday, which roots go back centuries, draws believers to the origins and values of Islam, calls for mercy, justice and piety, a caring and cordial attitude towards others," the message says.

"These lofty humanistic and moral ideals, which are the bedrock of all world religions, serve as a powerful unifying force, contribute to strengthening interethnic harmony in society and preserving the cultural diversity and authentic traditions of our people," the president stressed.
