Chisinau, June 21, Interfax - Moldovan President Igor Dodon will go on vacation in early August, during which he will visit Mount Athos and will meet with the Greek president and prime minister.

“During my previous visit to Athos, I promised to myself to come to those holy places again,” Dodon said on Accent-TV.

During direct dialogue with television viewers, in which they could ask questions, for example, about the absence in Chisinau of a swimming pool for athletes to train, Dodon promised to build a Sports Palace in Chisinau before the end of his presidential term.

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.
