On 4 June 2018, Mr. Sergey Lavrov, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, currently on a working visit to the Republic of South Africa, tended on the Church of St. Sergius of Radonezh in Johannesburg.

Mr. Lavrov went round the Church of St. Sergius and the chapel dedicated to St. Vladimir Equal-to-the-Apostles built in commemoration of the Russians who died during the Boer wars. Archpriest Daniel Lugovoy told the minister about the life of the Russian Orthodox parish which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, about its role in spiritual unity of the diaspora in the south of the African continent, the preservation of the Russian language among the compatriots and the promotion of Russian culture in foreign countries.
