admin | 30 July 2012

On July 28, 2012, His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia visited the Memorial of Eternal Glory at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Kiev and the memorial to the victims of the 1930s mass starvation.  

His Holiness laid wreaths at the memorials and said a prayer for the repose of ‘the commanders and troops who gave their lives for the faith and the Motherland’ and for the repose of the victims of the mass starvation which spread to several regions in Ukraine, Russia and Kazakhstan in the 1930s. ‘Eternal Memory’ was sung to them.


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.
