Orthodox and Catholic believers in the Russian Baltic enclave have come out against creation of a gambling zone in the Kaliningrad region
Orthodox and Catholic believers in the Russian Baltic enclave have come out against creation of a gambling zone in the Kaliningrad region. Orthodox Bishop Serafim and head of the Russian Catholic community Archbishop Tadeus Kondrusevich have discussed prospects for one of Russia's "Las Vegas" centers in the Kaliningrad region, the press service of the Catholic Metropolis in Russia told Tass. The general idea that a gambling zone should be created in a remote and scarcely populated region hardly fits Kaliningrad, according to a conclusion voiced at the meeting. Representatives of Catholic and Orthodox communities supported a protest act held in Kaliningrad in June 30 against the construction of a network of casinos in the Kaliningrad region. The Baltic "Las Vegas" would attract gamblers and more drug addicts to the region, where a hospital for drug addicts is already full, the protesters said. The Orthodox and Catholic bishops agreed to organize a symposium in the Kaliningrad region to discuss measures of support to the institution of a family and church support to sailors and their families.
