Eastern churches
Russian monk preaches online
The sermons of Archimandrite John (Krest’yankin). (In Russian.) Хорошо (good!). Pechersky (печерский) means of a cave so Fr John is of the Pskov Caves Monastery.

From the good folk at RISU
Ukrainian Catholic Church backs off from alleged claim to St Sophia’s Cathedral
They were ‘in your face’ moving their headquarters to Kiev (search the blog for my view on that) but are being tactful now: тоже хорошо. It’s one of the oldest if not the oldest church in the country and is literally Byzantine (but dressed up in baroque costume jewellery), built by Greeks from the empire and sharing its dedication (Holy Wisdom) with Constantinople’s cathedral church. The mother church of Russian Christanity.
