admin | 11 February 2013

In Azerbaijan, religious communities have equal rights, the primate of the Russian Orthodox Church has said.

“In the conditions of a real danger of pseudo extremism, legal system limits the external influence on the religious organizations that prevents propagation of potentially dangerous radical ideas,” he said.

“Baku and the Azerbaijani Diocese of the Russian Orthodox Church supports the traditionally friendly relations with the Caucasus Muslims Office, and the European Community of Mountain Jews, and the Catholic community,” he said further, noting that between the Church and the government there is a constructive cooperation.

One sign of it  His Holiness Patriarch Kirill called the Order of President Ilham Aliyev on granting an area to the church adjacent to the Cathedral of the Holy Myrrh-bearers in Baku for the construction of the diocesan religious and cultural centre.

…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 -,, and 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.
