Moscow, March 22, Interfax - Head of the Council of Muftis of Russia Ravil Gainutdin, has expressed condolences in relation to the series of terrorist attacks in Brussels.

“We are sure that the criminals that committed these acts of terror will receive the most severe punishment. Islam and the Muslim community condemn the murderers of innocent people, condemn the terrorists who will face horrible punishment from the Almighty as the Holy Quran says: “He who kills a believing soul intentionally, Allah makes the Fire of Hell his abode,” Gainutdin’ statement posted on the website of the Council of Muftis on Tuesday says.

He also wished speedy recovery to those injured in the terror attacks.

Thirteen people were killed, and 35 more have suffered injuries in the explosion at Brussels Zaventem international airport, the Belgian RTBF television channel said, referring to the Belgian federal prosecution service.

The Belgian public broadcaster VTM confirmed ten fatalities, and dozens of injured people, in the explosion at the Maalbeek metro station in Brussels.

…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.
