Sofia, March 2, 2003

Bulgaria's orthodox Patriarch Maxim awarded the ecclesiastical order "St. Tsar Boris" to Russian President Putin.

This is the most important distinction of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church and has not been conferred to a head of state for twenty years.

Patriarch Maxim thanked to the Russian president for the attention with which he honors the Bulgarian Orthodox Church. Putin commended the patriarch for his Russian counterpart Alexy II. "We very much appreciate the contribution of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church for the strengthening of our bilateral ties," Russia's president said.

Bulgarian patriarch also presented Putin with an icon depicting Slav saints Cyril and Methodius that worked in Bulgaria to create an alphabet that put the beginning of today's Cyrillic script.

In late January Russian orthodox Patriarch Alexy II awarded Bulgaria's President Parvanov with an international prize for "extraordinary work for strengthening the unity of the orthodox peoples."
