Russia's Ambassador to Bulgaria Eleonora Mitrofanova congratulated on Facebook on the occasion of May 24.

"Dear Bulgarian friends, I heartily congratulate you on the Day of the Holy Brothers Cyril and Methodius.

Although the official names of this holiday in our countries are different, its ideals - Orthodoxy, writing, culture and education - are enduring values ​​for the peoples of Russia and Bulgaria, "she said. 

Mitrofanova notes that Cyril and Methodius have gone down in history forever as great Christian educators and missionaries.

"Thanks to the work of the Thessalonian brothers, as well as their students who worked in the Ohrid and Preslav literary schools, the whole Slavic world in the era of the First Bulgarian Kingdom received the most valuable gift - its own alphabet," said the ambassador.
