Russian Church to publish Bible for labor migrants

Earlier they introduced in practice language courses, lectures on basics of Russian culture and legislation, guided tours and conversations with labor migrants, publishing educational literature with parallel translation into languages of the Central Asia.

In January 2014, the Commission’s Head Hieromonk Dimitry (Pershin), speaking at a round table in the State Duma, suggested that state should back up the project of publishing Gospels in languages of the Central Asia.

“It is very important to make this edition scientific, academical, of high quality. It will be our response to the demands of society in cultural adaptation and integration of labour migrants. Our response is not aggression. It is certain language and notional standard, which we can offer to study for those who come to us,” he 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 -,, 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.
