A festive service for Easter is being been held at the Russian air base in Khmeimim in Syria. The service is conducted by the assistant commander of the armed Forces of Russia in Syria with priest Vitaly.


“For us it is a joyful holiday, and it is felt especially sharply in Syria. The servicemen have reverently prepared for this holiday. During the Holy Week there were services dedicated to the life of our Lord Jesus Christ and many servicemen attended,” – he said.
For the service, the Orthodox choir of Zaikonospassky Monastery arrived to the air base especially from Moscow. Exactly at midnight there was a procession around the church of the Prophet Elijah. Servicemen, who are free from combat duty, took part in it.
