In his video address to the portal's visitors, the chairman of the Patriarchal Commission Archpriest Dimitry Smirnov noted: "I want to congratulate everybody in our native land who is sympathizes with the restoration of a real, full-fledged, Russian family of many children. We are opening a new portal of the Patriarchal Commission on protection of motherhood and childhood. In the modern world it is impossible to promote ideas without modern technologies, and so we, following the spirit of the time, have taken care to create such an instrument".
"We will try to promote informational support and a higher level of legal culture in the sphere of family relations as well as motherhood and childhood. And, of course, to preach in all possible ways the Christian views on the family, motherhood and childhood, which have now been largely lost," added Archpriest.
