Cynically planned on the eve of New Year celebrations, this strike is another attempt by terrorists to open an internal front, spread panic and chaos, cause inter-religious hatred and conflict in Russian society, says Russian Foreign Ministry.

The terrorist attacks in Volgograd are an attempt to trigger inter-confessional strife in the Russian society. This came in a report of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

“A strike that was that was cynically planned on the New Year’s eve is another terrorist to attempt to open an internal ‘front’, to cause panic and chaos, and to trigger inter-confessional strife and conflicts in the Russian society. We’ll continue our struggle with the shrewd enemy who knows no borders and can be stopped only by common efforts.”

Criminal attacks in Volgograd, as well as the attacks of terrorists in in the US, Syria, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Nigeria, and other countries, have much in common, and their inspirers have much in common too, the document stresses.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry stresses that amid the continued “frank” provocation appeals issued by the bandit warlords – such as Doku Umarov – to unite the forces under the flag of jihad and to draw new militants into the war, the destructive position of some politicians and “political technologists”, who are trying to divide into “correct” and “incorrect”, depending on the geopolitical tasks, is becoming more and more evident.

Such moves have more than once led to tragic consequences. Terrorism is always a crime, and terrorists must be punishable by law. And what is needed today is a unanimous denunciation of terrorism and, of course, international solidarity to counter terrorism and the ideology of violence and extremism, which is a feeding ground for terrorism, Russia’s Foreign Ministry 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 - 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.
