Vladimir Putin congratulated the leaders of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Abkhazia and South Ossetia, as well as the citizens of Georgia and Ukraine, on the 73rd anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War.

In his congratulatory messages, the President of Russia emphasised that Victory Day is a sacred date and a symbol of the unparalleled heroism of our peoples, who fought shoulder to shoulder on the war’s frontlines and worked tirelessly on the home front to save the Motherland and all of humanity from Nazism.

Vladimir Putin underscored the importance of passing on to the younger generation the undistorted truth about what happened during the Great Patriotic War, and stressed that it is the duty of today’s generations to prevent tragic events of the past from ever happening again.

The President also expressed confidence that the traditions of brotherly friendship and mutual assistance forged during the years of great hardship will continue to serve as a solid foundation for developing relations among our countries.

Vladimir Putin conveyed words of sincere gratitude to all war veterans and home front workers, wishing them good health, peace and prosperity.


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 - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. 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.
