Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed his gratitude and deep appreciation to President H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan for facilitating the construction of an Orthodox Church in UAE for the Russian community living in the country.

At a meeting also attended by Metropolitan Kyrill of Smolensk and Kaliningrad, chairman of the Moscow Patriarchate's Department of external relations, and Pastor Alexander, Head of the Russian Orthodox Church in Sharjah, the Russian President said that UAE stands distinct with its faith in religious tolerance, its penchant for dialogue between civilizations and coexistence with different nations. Metropolitan Kyrill hailed the spirit of tolerance and the moderation which are evident in the wise policies of UAE, adding that the Russian Orthodox Church will strive to instil the same spirit among its followers living in UAE.
