      Putin hails Russian Church's contribution to tackling social problems

      Moscow, September 4, Interfax - The Russian Orthodox Church acts as a
      keeper of the nation's spiritual traditions and helps the government tackle
      day-to-day social problems, President Vladimir Putin told Patriarch of
      Moscow and All Russia Alexy II on Sunday.

      "Today the Russian Orthodox Church is not only a keeper of the century-long
      spiritual and cultural traditions of our people. It helps the state resolve
      day-to-day social problems," he said.

      The Russian Orthodox Church "plays an important role in educating young
      people - educating them in the spirit of patriotism, justice and commitment
      to family values," Putin said.
