His Holiness Patriarch Kirill congratulates elected President of the Republic of Serbia

His Excellency Mr. Aleksandar Vucic

Elected President of the Republic of Serbia

Your Excellency, dear Mr. Vucic:

I cordially congratulate You on the election to the post of President of the Republic of Serbia. Your victory testifies to the high degree of people’s confidence in You and in the path of development that You have suggested for the country.

I am confident that your many years’ experience of work at different governmental posts will help You at the new one. I hope that with your personal participation good relations between our fraternal nations will be further strengthened, while traditional moral values will be upheld in society. An important contribution to this noble cause is made by the Russian and Serbian Orthodox Churches united by the bonds of love of Christ during centuries.

I wish You good health, God’s help and success in Your responsible labours in future, and peace and prosperity to the Serbian people.

With respect,



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.
