All religions in Azerbaijan are equal, and this is confirmed not only by documents, but also by actions, Bishop of Baku and Azerbaijan Alexander (Alexander Ishein) said on Saturday at the awarding ceremony with the Dostlug (Friendship) Order organized at the State Committee for Work with Religious Organizations.

“Compared with other countries there are no conflicts on religious grounds in Azerbaijan, for which the country is grateful to the President,” Alexander said.

He expressed satisfaction that President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has honored him with this award.

Chairman of the State Committee for Work with Religious Organizations Elshan Isgenderov gave Ishein the Dostlug order, which he was awarded by the Order of President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev.

Speaking at the event, Isgenderov stressed that representatives of the Russian people living in Azerbaijan are citizens of the country and that they have shown a special selflessness in battles, defending the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan.

By order of the President for services in the development of ties between the peoples of Azerbaijan and Russia, Alexander Ishein was awarded the Dostlug Order.

Since you are here…

…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.
