Legoyda, Chairman of the Synodal Department for Church’s Relations with Society and Mass Media, Head of the Press Service of the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia, reports the official website of the Russian Orthodox Church .

According to Legoyda, the Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church also prays that the authorities of the Republic of Belarus and all healthy forces of the Belarusian society, who care for the welfare of the people, enter into a dialogue to overcome the tension that has arisen.

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.
