Russian Patriarch commemorates the baptizer of Russia

At present, Kyiv is the capital of Ukraine.

The head of the Russian Orthodox Church Patriarch Kirill is now in Kyiv. On the eve of St. Vladimir’s day, His Holiness Kirill prayed in front of a monument to Vladimir for the well-being of all the peoples of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus, who became Christians as a result of the activities initiated by Prince Vladimir.

Thousands of Kyiv’s residents came to greet the Russian Patriarch, but there was also a rally of his opponents who are dissatisfied with the fact that the Ukrainian Orthodox Church is subdued to the Russian Patriarch’s office.

“Prince Vladimir was strong-willed enough to break away with paganism and to choose Christianity, a religion which presupposes suppressing one’s passions,” the Patriarch said to his supporters. “I will be happy if you are strong-willed enough to follow Vladimir’s example, although it is sometimes hard to be a Christian.”
