Unidentified individuals desecrated the Serbian Orthodox church of Saint Sava in the Sarajevo neighbourhood of Blazuj, when they broke six windows panes and wrote improper messages.

Priest Bojan Kulasevic of Blazuj stated that unidentified vandals wrote ‘Allah’ on two spots on the church wall using dark paint.

According to him, the local police have been notified about the incident and they carried out a preliminary investigation.

The church in Blazuj was targeted by an attack a month ago when vandals tried to set the entrance on fire in the night between April 21 and 22, the Radio Televizija Republike Srpske 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.
