KIEV, MOSCOW — Ukraine will this coming weekend mark the 1025th anniversary since the adoption of Eastern Orthodox Christianity by the medieval duchy of Kievan Rus.

The celebration in Kiev will be attended by the presidents of Serbia, Russia and Moldova and other guests, spokesman of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry Yevgeny Perebeinos stated on Tuesday.

Presidents of Russia, Moldova and Serbia confirmed their attendance, as well as a number of dignitaries of Orthodox churches, Perebeinos said at a news briefing as reported by Itar-Tass.

He added that leaders of other countries may also attend the meeting.

The celebration will be staged on July 27 and 28.

Press secretary of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov told reporters earlier that Vladimir Putin would visit Kiev in late July, the Russian news agency reported.

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.
