Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Augsburg Confession in Russia expresses its deepest condolences to the family and friends of the Russian pilot who was killed in the Tuesday November 24 2015, as a result of the treacherous attack of the Turkish Air Force. Believers of Russian Lutheran Church is fervently praying for the fate of the second pilot, and hope that he will stay alive and will be able to return home!
Russian Lutherans also pray for all of our soldiers in the war zone, regardless of the differences in their religious and national identity.


For the Russian Lutherans it is clear that in this situation, our soldiers are fighting against international terrorists, bandits, whose blood is on the hands of civilians in many countries and among them 217 Russian citizens who died in the terrorist attack on Sinai. Bandits and criminals unleashed terror around the world, a few days ago, as a result of their actions they killed Russian citizens in Mali, the wave of violence and terror is growing and threatens to engulf the entire world.


We urge leaders and believers of other Lutheran churches in Russia: the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Russia and its leader, Dietrich Brauer, Evangelical Lutheran Church of Ingria in Russia and its leader Arri Kugappi, drop their differences and join this statement, joint efforts in the fight with terrorism through the unanimous support of the Government of the Russian Federation and its president, Vladimir Putin personally.
We call for a common prayer for those who are now risking their lives defending our common right to life.


Russian Lutherans call upon all people of good will to unite in confronting terror and violence against those who are trying to push the world into chaos and horror of religious wars, violence and terror.
