Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulated his compatriots on the Day of Russia. The greeting is addressed to the country's residents, citizens who are now outside Russia’s borders and all “for whom this day is filled with a sacred meaning.”

“For each of us, the Motherland is a family and your revered home, our native land - from Kaliningrad to Kamchatka and from the Kuril Islands in the Northern Arctic seas to Sevastopol and the Crimea. Our thousand year long history was forged on these vast territories, filled with pages of great glory and pride, unsurpassed courage of our ancestors, their faith and love for the Motherland,” he said.

According to Putin, the love for the country has always helped the people of Russia to pass through adversity, to survive and preserve themselves in severe trials, to successfully respond to any challenges.

Russia Day is celebrated on June 12. On this day in 1990, the Declaration of state sovereignty of Russia was adopted. In honor of the holiday on Poklonnaya hill in Moscow, the ceremony of raising the Russian flag took place. Later in the day, Putin will present gold medals to the Heroes of Labor of the Russian Federation.
