The Tula Kremlin is a true masterpiece of Russian architecture; it remains a unique monument of Russian culture and architecture. This is stated in the congratulatory telegram of Russian President Vladimir Putin to the participants, organizers and guests of the celebrations dedicated to the 500th anniversary of the construction, published on September 26 on the Kremlin website.
According to the Russian leader, the Tula Kremlin has reliably defended the southern borders of Russia for centuries, the enemies were unable to crush “the powerful walls of this ancient citadel.”
As Putin recalled, in 1941, the whole of Tula became an impregnable fortress, and thanks in large part to the inhabitants, the city survived, defended Moscow and received the title of Hero City.
At present, concern for the preservation of the Tula Kremlin serves as an example of fruitful cooperation between the state and civil society, those who value our invaluable heritage, the President noted.
