Alexander Lukashenko sends Easter greetings to Patriarch Kirill

“This holiday unites people and makes nations closer, fills our lives with the light of kindness, universal love and hope,” the message of greetings reads.

“We greatly appreciate your tireless efforts aimed at strengthening the Orthodox faith and promoting the role of the Russian Orthodox Church in the society. May your prayers help us in our undertakings, contribute to the spiritual unity of the fraternal Slavonic nations,” Alexander Lukashenko said.

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.
