Representatives of the Synodal Department of the Moscow Patriarchate meet with the Serbian Patriarch

The guests from Russia received blessing of His Holiness for  distribution of humanitarian aid from the Russian Orthodox Church to be realized in the Diocese of Valjevo. His Holiness informed in detail the high guests on the conditions in some dioceses of the Serbian Orthodox Church and pointed out the scale of the disaster which had affected the Serbian people.


During their stay in Serbia, the guests from Russia had an opportunity to visit the affected regions in the country.

His Grace Bishop Antonije of Moravica, head of the Representation of the Serbian Orthodox Church in Moscow, as well as protopresbyter Vitaly Tarasyev, head of the Representation of the Russian Orthodox Church in Belgrade, were present at this reception.

It is here that we point out that His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia called upon his congregation to start collecting humanitarian aid for the endangered Serbian people.

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.
