Six hurt in firing at Gorlovka cathedral

“People were hurt on the Cathedral’s territory. The Gorlovka residents were hiding in the lower church, which had been transformed into a bomb shelter, for more than a week. They went for a walk around the cathedral to take a breath of fresh air,” the diocese said.

Six people suffered injuries and were rushed to the city hospital No2 for medical attendance.

A woman lost her wrist and a man sustained fragmentation wounds to his legs. A shell fragment hit a man’s head.

About two weeks ago a shell fired by the Ukrainian army hit the premises of the Gorlovka Diocese administration.

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.
