Today, 1 June, the church honours the memory of Grand Prince St Dmitri Donskoi. He was born in 1350, brought up under the guidance of Metropolitan St Aleksei Byakont of Moscow. Prince Dmitri combined Christian piety with outstanding talents as a statesman. He dedicated himself to uniting the Russian lands and liberating them from the Tatar-Mongolian yoke. Gathering strength for a decisive battle with the Horde, St Dmitri asked the blessing of Righteous St Sergei Radonezhsky. The starets encouraged the prince, sending him the warrior-monks Aleksandr Peresvet and Andrei Oslyabya. After his victory at the Battle of the Kulikovo Polye, on the feastday of the Nativity of the Birthgiver of God, he received the honorific title “Donskoi” (“of the Don”). Prince Dmitri founded the Assumption Monastery on the Dubenke River and built the Church of the Nativity of the Most Holy Birthgiver of God near the graves of his fallen warriors. St Dmitri died on 19 May 1389, with burial at the Cathedral of Archangel St Michael in the Moscow Kremlin.

Song About Aleksandr Nevsky

The Sacred War sung by a PLA choir in China… American stupidity, brutality, and arrogance led to the present Sino-Russian alliance… it’ll stand until the defeat of all American aggression around the world

“1242” is the victory in the Battle on the Ice won by Grand Prince St Aleksandr Nevsky… “1380” is the victory in the Battle of Kulikovo Polye won by Grand Prince St Dmitri Donskoi… “1812” is the victory won over Napoleon in the Patriotic War of 1812… “1945” is the victory won over Fascist Germany and Japan in the Great Patriotic War (VOV). Two of these victories came before the USA was even thought of… the Battle on the Ice was 534 years before the so-called “Declaration of Independence” and the Battle of Kulikovo Polye was 396 years before it. That is, both of these victories are further back in history than the total age of the USA (238 years). That’s why the Anglo American toddlers show such fecklessness… as a society, they’re nothing but children… as their motto “Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing” shows. Why do societies do this, even though they have mature individuals within them? I haven’t the slightest… I simply observe that it’s true. America threatens a country that’s thrown back virtually all invaders. Hmm… Anglo Americans believe, “History is bunk”… I DO beg to differ…

“All those who march on Russia shall be put to death”… as it was, as it is, as it ever shall be…
