On 22 September 2014, Metropolitan Georgy of Nizhny Novgorod and Arzamas met with a delegation of specialists from Hubei Province and the city of Wuhan, who have been carrying out restoration work at the Orthodox Church of St. Alexander Nevsky in Wuhan, the oldest Orthodox construction in China at the moment.

The Chinese delegation, led by Mr. Wang Fangjou, deputy head of the Cultural Heritage Bureau of Hubei Province, arrived in Russia in September 2014, and visited Moscow, Diveyevo, Nizhny Novgorod, Arzamas, Gorodets, and St. Petersburg.

Metropolitan Georgy of Nizhny Novgorod and Arzamas received the Chinese guests in his residence at the Pechersky Monastery of the Holy Ascension. The participants in the meeting discussed a wide range of issues of regional cooperation between Russia and China in humanitarian sphere, including further joint efforts of the Russian and the Chinese specialists, aimed at restoring the Church of St. Alexander Nevsky in the city of Wuhan.

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.
