- Actually, since the new editorial board was appointed (which is headed by
His Eminence, Archbishop Kyrill), it was decided to address the issue of
the inconsistencies between the Russian and English versions and the time
lag that often occurred.
Since that time, all materials are prepared in both languages and the two
versions are simultaneously posted.
I am sure that everyone can understand how much more difficult it is to
keep the website updated in both languages simultaneously--especially with
long articles that need to be translated.
If there are inconsistencies (such as the announcement of Fr. Andrei
Troufanoff's repose that appeared only on the Russian version)--they are
As far as the content goes, we must remember that the site is the official
voice of the Synod of Bishops--it is not the New York Post. Information
about the Synod is posted when it is received from the Department of
Communications of the Synod of Bishops.
Many questions are not addressed just because there is not yet information
about them. The itinerary for Metropolitan Laurus's visit to Russia is
still not completely finalized, for example, so what is being posted is
that which is available.
Another question regarding content has to do with not receiving materials
from various dioceses. We get very little from Canada, Europe, Australia,
and virtually nothing at all from South America.
There are no official correspondents, so getting material, with pictures,
is like pulling teeth.
Believe me, if we get stuff, we'll post it.
Any help that can be offered will be gratefully accepted, as will
suggestions for improving the site.
With love in Christ,
Prot. Alexander Lebedeff
