Dodon Stresses Importance of Orthodoxy among Moldavia’s National Priorities team | 08 June 2018

Moscow, June 6, Interfax – Moldavian President Igor Dodon says that Orthodoxy remains among chief pillars of his policy.

“In the run-up to parliamentary elections, we will have such an opportunity. Our values remain unchanged: statehood, neutrality, the Orthodox faith and traditional family ties, a balanced foreign policy including strategic partnership with Russia, and the country’s multi-ethnicity. This is the basis for me, and I will never depart from this. I am calling on everyone to unite around these values,” Dodon said in an interview with a local TV channel, a fragment from which he posted on his social network account.

The problem with a lot of Moldovan politicians is that they are “controlled by Westerners,” he said.

“They have their assets, families, and so on there. I have nothing to be blackmailed with in the West and in the East. I have no business or homes either there or there, and this gives me some freedom of action. I speak with everyone honestly and openly, and I don’t turn away from my own way,” Dodon 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.
