Press Secretary of the President of Russia said that President Vladimir Putin at Easter, like last year, will go to the temple. About it reports “Tape.ru”.
“The place is, usually do not announce. I wouldn’t now,” — said Peskov.
During major feasts, Putin attends Church services. Usually, at Easter, he remains in Moscow. In 2016, 2015 and 2014, the head of state met Easter in the temple of Christ the Savior.
Last year, after the service, the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill gave Putin, on the Orthodox holiday decorative Easter eggs that made the Church’s jewelers.
The same gift, the Patriarch gave the Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and his wife Svetlana.
