Moscow, March 20, Interfax - Officials of the Synodal Department for Church Charity delivered 25 tones of food supplies to the Donetsk Region.

The cargo was completed on church means in amount of USD 25 000, the Russian Church reports Friday at its website.

“It is very hard to see the condition of people in Debaltsevo, Uglegorsk and other towns. People didn’t receive anything for months, they hid in basements because of the continuous shelling,” the department staff-member Alexey Shashkov was quoted as saying.

Late in December 2014, the department officials handed over 1500 food sets to residents of the Lugansk Region. Over 3000 people jn Lugansk received humanitarian help from the Russian Church in February.

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.
