The Georgian side once again intends to raise the issue of reburial of the remains of two Georgian Bagrationi dynasty kings – Vakhtang VI and Teimuraz II from Astrakhan to Tbilisi.

Ilia II is a supporter of the idea of ​​the revival of the monarchy in Georgia. However, he considers that it is necessary to bring up one of the heirs of the royal dynasty to Georgia.

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.
