“We plan that 700 tons of Easter cakes will be cooked for the feast, it is three million cakes. It is only what our Moscow factories will do. Foreign production will also be represented. 14 bread baking plants will cook Easter cakes. We as always have enough flour and bakery products,” he said.

First deputy director of the Mosgortrans state enterprise Boris Tkachyuk reported that free buses would go to 17 major Moscow cemeteries on the days of church feasts. They will work on the Palm Sunday (April 24), Easter (May 1) and St. Thomas Sunday (May 8).

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 euros 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 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
