Moscow, March 10, Interfax - Russian President Vladimir Putin has thanked Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic for his contribution in the unity of Orthodox Christian nations and congratulated him on having received the relevant award.

“I want to congratulate you on the well-deserved award, the prize of the International Public Foundation for the Unity of Christian Orthodox Nations. You are doing a great deal to protect and popularize the Eastern Christian traditions and values. I know this myself, you and I spoke privately about all of this on numerous occasions,” Putin said at a meeting with the Serbian president.

He personally thanked Nikolic for his efforts in this area.

“Our inter-state relations are developing, and they are developing successfully. We are going to talk about it today. Welcome!” Putin said.

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.
