MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The president praised the “selfless work” of the Russian Orthodox Church as well as other Christian churches aimed at solving important social problems, boosting the institution of family, bringing up children as well as harmonization of interreligious and interethnic relations.

“The great holiday of Easter has a special moral sense, spreads the eternal light of faith, fills hearts with joy, love, striving for goodness. Easter celebrations, that are taking place across the country, trace back to centuries-long traditions of ancestors, promote imperishable spiritual values and ideals,” Putin said, as quoted by the Kremlin press service.

Putin also congratulated Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia and thanked him for his work.

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.
