May 9 is the great Nation' triumph


08.05.2017

Dear friends,

I cordially congratulate you on the most important holiday, the victory in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945!

This holiday comes with tears in our eyes. At the same time we celebrate our great people's victory over the

worst enemy in human's history - German Fascism. For salvation of all the people living on this earth today

our grandmothers and great-grandfathers died.The festivities pay tribute to their deed, to all of those who worked towards the Victory, to all not spearing themselves for the defense of peace.

On May 9 millions of Russian World people will join the Immortal Regiment columns with pride and joy for the Great Victory. While we are alive, while our children and grandchildren are alive the Victory Day memory will be sacred.

We bow to our veterans, to whom we owe not just ths holiday, but our lives!

Great Victory Day, friends!


Vyacheslav Nikonov, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Russkiy Mir Foundation

As the Russkiy Mir reported, residents of Papua New Guinea addressed the head of the Russian Orthodox Church with a collective petition to establish an Orthodox mission in their country. This proposal was put forward after Kirill Shrakbul, a priest and head of the ROC mission in Taiwan, had visited Papua New Guinea.
On September 1, millions of children in Russia went to school. And millions of their peers in Ukraine also went to schools. Everything seems to be the same: flowers, bows, well-dressed children, excited parents... And yet there is a difference and a very significant one: children in Russia go to schools to study in their native language. However, starting with this academic year, hundreds of thousands of Russian-speaking children no longer have this opportunity in Ukraine.
