The Kazan attacks on Tatarstan’s Mufti Ildus Faizov and his deputy Valilulla Yakupov are attempts to undermine traditional Islam in Russia, the Patriarch of Russia Kirill stated on July 19, sending his condolences over the tragedy.

On July 19, unknown individuals blew up Faizov’s car while the Mufti’s deputy was shot dead near his home in Kazan. Both were known for their anti-Wahhabi and anti-extremism activity.

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.

Dear Friends,

Our website exists owing to your generous assistance, thanks to the funds donated by our beloved readers.

Please assist us in the continuation of our work.
