This work, which lasted five years, was highly appreciated by Russian President Vladimir Putin and Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia. The Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church performed the rite of the great consecration of the cathedral on July 21 this year, on the day of the acquisition of the Kazan image of the Most Holy Theotokos.

And here is a new sign of appreciation of the good deeds of the Tatar-Bashkir entrepreneur – a letter of thanks for his contribution to the revival of the majestic Orthodox church. It, at the request of the head of Packer, was received by the adviser to the director Timur Minnivaleev.
