On 29 May 2013, His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia received Mr. Boris Tadić, former President of the Republic of Serbia and incumbent President of the Democratic Party of Serbia at his request. The meeting took place at the work-room of His Holiness in the building of the Holy Synod in St. Petersburg.

His Holiness expressed his deep concern for the fate of the Serbian people and Orthodox holy sites in Kosovo, for instance, in the light of the recent agreement between Serbia and Kosovo reached through the mediation of the European Union. Security of the Serbian people and protection of Orthodox monasteries in Kosovo should be guaranteed in any new agreement.

Taking part in the talk were Metropolitan Hilarion, chairman of the Moscow Patriarchate’s Department for External Church Relations, and Ms Jelica Kurjak, former Serbian ambassador to Russia.

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 - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. 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.
