      Metropolitan Nicholas of Messogia and Lavreotiki gave funds to help those
      affected by forest fires in Russia

      Recalling the devastating fires which took place in Greece in 2007 and 2009, the
      bishop said:  "I hope that this symbolic amount of 200 thousand rubles will be
      the beginning not of symbolic but effective aid that the Russian Church will
      provide its victims."
