Bishop Ioann told Ambassador Kislyak about today’s life of the faithful who come to America from Russia and her neighbouring countries. They discussed a plan for joint events to mark the 70th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War, the 1000th anniversary of the demise of Prince Vladimir Equal-to-the-Apostles and the Day of Love and Faithfulness. They also considered possibilities for extending the work with the youth.

Bishop Ioann and Mr. Kislyak agreed to continue cooperating in areas of mutual concern for the embassy and the Patriarchal Parishes, the website of the Russian Orthodox Church in the USA reports.

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 -,, and 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.
