In connection with the aggravation of the situation in Donbass, the Russian Orthodox Church called for prayer and repentance.

“The time has come for intense prayer and repentance! Dear fathers, brothers and sisters! I call you all to fervent prayer and good deeds of mercy! May the Lord strengthen us all in unity, faith, hope and love!!!” Archbishop Theophylact of Pyatigorsk and Circassian wrote in his Telegram channel on February 24.

Archbishop Theophylact’s appeal was also supported by Vladimir Legoyda, Head of the Synodal Department for Church Relations with Society and the Media.

“The time of intense prayer…”, Vladimir Legoyda commented on the appeal of the Archbishop of Pyatigorsk.

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.
