Blagovest-Info, the Russian religious news agency, has reported that the money has already been transferred to the Synod of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, addressed to Metropolitan Onuphrius of Kiev and All Ukraine, who sent a letter of thanks.

In particular, the Metropolitan mentioned in his letter that Ukraine is suffering from one of the most dramatic periods in its recent history and, therefore, that it is crucially important to feel the support and help from brothers in the faith.

The Synod of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church has expressed its gratitude to all those who have financially assisted victims of military actions in Ukraine, refugees, and their families.

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.

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.
