With the help of the Russian Orthodox Church, an Orthodox education course will be introduced in schools in the Donbass and other areas.

Sergei Platonov, the head of Synodal Department of Religious Education and Catechesis’ press service, told TASS yesterday that the Department will supports schools in implementing the Fundamentals of Religious Cultures and Secular Ethics program that was introduced in Russia in 2014.

Platonov also emphasized that many dioceses and heads of educational institutions within the Russian Church have been providing comprehensive assistance to children from Donbass who, forced to leave their homes due to shelling, were placed in Orthodox camps, schools, and kindergartens this summer.
