Moscow, June 27, Interfax - Home guards released members of OSCE mission detained in south-east Ukraine in response to Patriarch Kirill's of Moscow and All Russia request, prime minister of the self-proclaimed Donetsk Republic Alexander Boroday said.

“Thanks to the patriarch’s address, thanks to people’s good will we managed to do it. Observers were released without any conditions,” Boroday was cited as saying on Friday by the Synodal Information Department press service.

Earlier in his address, Patriarch Kirill urged “to help release a group of observers detained in south-east Ukraine.” He stressed that “liberation of these people will become another important manifestation of good will and aspiration for peaceful settlement of the Ukrainian crisis.”

Earlier, the DNR press service informed Interfax that four OSCE officials were taken to a Donetsk hotel where Boroday met them. Press conference with their participation is expected to be held on Saturday.

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 dollars a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 dollars a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
