The results of a poll conducted by the Public Opinion Fund (POF) show that 66% of Russians – the population as a whole, without reference to one’s faith – trust the Russian Orthodox Church.

According to the poll, 63% of Russians consider themselves Orthodox believers reports the POF website.

As for the trust in the Church, the percentage of trusting respondents increased by 13 points (from 53% to 66%), compared to 2020 (March 8).

When the respondents were asked about trusting in Patriarch Kirill personally, 54% of them answered positively, and this is 15% more compared to March 2020 (39%).

The poll was conducted on April 8-10, 2022 in 53 regions of Russia. 1,500 respondents were polled in 104 settlements. The statistical error does not exceed 3.6%.

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.
