The Russian president noted that as head of the United States during one of the most important stages of world history, George HW Bush "has expressed political wisdom and foresight, strove to make informed decisions even in the most hard situations".
"The entire Bush family is deeply grateful for 41's life and love, for the compassion of those who cared and prayed for Dad, and for the condolences of our friends and fellow citizens". "Share pain of family and American people". At a time when the Cold War was ending and the influence of Soviet-style communism was withering, Bush's military and diplomatic actions firmly cast the United States as the world's leading superpower.
He died "at home in Houston surrounded by family and close friends", family spokesman Jim McGrath told AFP.

He flew 58 combat missions and was shot down over the Pacific by Japanese anti-aircraft fire.
Former president Barack Obama mourned Bush's passing in similar terms. In 1989, Bush played host to Benazir Bhutto, the first female prime minister in the Islamic world, when she paid a state visit to the United States. After graduation Bush embarked on a career in the oil industry of West Texas. In 1988 Bush won the Republican nomination for President and, with Senator Dan Quayle of IN as his running mate, he defeated Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis IN the general election.
He declared a "new world order" in 1990 and drove Iraq from Kuwait in a matter of weeks with a lightning air and ground assault - and the backing of a coalition of 32 nations. President George W. Bush, in late 2001, announced a decision to withdraw from the Antiballistic Missile Treaty, a move that infuriated Russian President Vladimir Putin.
He later would see his son George occupy the Oval Office for eight years - they are only the second father-son duo in American presidential history, after John and John Quincy Adams. Twenty months later, in 1992, the Republican Bush lost his bid for re-election to Democrat Bill Clinton, whose folksy manner and focus on the economy struck a chord with many Americans and made Bush seem disconnected from voters for focusing on foreign policy over domestic issues.
Sheikh Sabah also said Bush never "forgot the Kuwaiti people and will remain in their memory". Bush's "life is a testament to the notion that public service is a noble, joyous calling". While our hearts are heavy today, they are also filled with gratitude.
