What is the reason that the President is praised as the sun?

It is that he illuminated the road ahead of humankind with sunny beam, created the flower garden of human love and embraced all people with great charisma.

Although the President passed away, his idea and cause will shine forever as the sun does.

The July 2nd issue of the Russian paper Nakhodkinski Rabochi and the seventh issue of another Russian paper Moya Interesnaya Gazeta carried articles under the titles such as "The prominent leader in the 20th century" illustrated with the portrait of the smiling President.
