It is unacceptable for constitution to give preference to any one faith – Russian premier

admin | 07 December 2013

Moscow, December 6, Interfax – Any constitutional amendments that would give preference to any one religion are unacceptable, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said.

“The adoption of any special preferences is unacceptable. Our constitution guarantees the freedom of conscience. People are free to choose their church in accordance with their views, or refer to themselves as atheists,” Medvedev said in an interview with Russia’s central television stations.

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.
