Moscow, June 5, Interfax – Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov states that Russia returns to traditional spiritual values and it is one of the reasons why the West distances from it.
West moves away from Russia as the country returns to Orthodoxy, Lavrov believes

“Surprisingly, they start operating the thesis that the Soviet Union with its Communist doctrine at least stayed in the system of ideas worked out in the West, while modern Russia returns to its traditional values rooted in Orthodoxy and thus becomes even less understandable,” Lavrov said at his meeting with members of the Russian International Affairs Council in Moscow.

According to him, the contradiction “between objectively strengthening multipolarity and the USA and historical West strive to keep their usual dominating positions, between modern world’s cultural and civilization diversity and attempts to impose everyone Western scale of values.”

The latter, as the Minister said, “more and more tears apart from their own Christian roots and becomes less susceptible to religious feeling of people belonging to other confessions and religions.”

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.
