Congratulations from Patriarch Kirill
Esteemed Mr. Miller! Esteemed Mr. Zubkov!
I wholeheartedly congratulate you and all the Gazprom’s employees on the remarkable date – the 20th anniversary of the Company.
Nowadays it is a leading Russian company and one of the major companies in the global gas industry. Gazprom’s rapid evolution resulted from efficient management, application of unique developments and coherent efforts of all the employees.
It is joyful that the Company’s executives pay special attention to charity. Through supporting various cultural, educational, medical and sports projects the Company gained the reputation of a socially responsible and economically stable enterprise.
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Gazprom for participating in construction and restoration of orthodox churches, monasteries and convents both in Russia and abroad.
Hoping for continuance of the fruitful cooperation between the Russian Orthodox Church and the Company under your management in supporting the most vulnerable population groups, maintaining traditional spiritual and moral values in our people’s being, I wish all the participants of the current celebrations robust health, peace, prosperity, and may God bless you in your good deeds.
The Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia
