The fire-fighters had to work in hard conditions. No people were injured.

The fire has occurred on the ground floor of the cathedral, which houses a printing office, and the heavy smoke has enveloped the whole building and the adjacent area that made the fire-fighters and rescuers urgently evacuate all believers and clergymen.

Clergymen said that the lower storey of the cathedral housed the youth educational center, the printing office, as well as the utility rooms and the storage sites with secondhand clothes intended for the distribution to poor people.

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.
