Russian President Vladimir Putin on Saturday congratulated President-elect Droupadi Murmu on her victory.

“We attach much importance to the relations of special privileged strategic partnership with India. I hope your activities as the head of state will promote the further development of the Russian-Indian political dialogue and productive cooperation in different areas for the benefit of our friendly nations and in the interests of stronger international stability and security,” the press release read.

Murmu, who hails from Odisha’s Mayurbhanj district, won by an overwhelming margin against joint opposition candidate Yashwant Sinha after receiving over 64 per cent of valid votes in a day-long counting of ballots of MPs and MLAs.

She scripted history by becoming India’s first tribal president. Murmu will be the first President of India who was born after the country gained Independence. She will also be the youngest person elected to occupy the top post.

Murmu will be administered the oath of office on July 25.
