      Moscow (ENI). The Russian Orthodox Church has continued to pray for relief from the heat and drought that has gripped Russia for two months, as one archbishop condemned some retailers for profiteering from the extreme weather conditions. "That air conditioners sell for 50 000 roubles [US$1650] instead of 10 000, when people are dying of the heat is immoral and cruel," said Archbishop Feofan of Stavropol and Vladikavkaz, speaking at a youth camp at Pyatigorsk. "Sell them at the old price at least. This is God's command, and compassion for one's neighbour." [608 words, ENI-10-0557]
