Ukraine’s largest crucifix has been installed in Dniprodzerzhynsk. It was made at the Dniprodzerzhynsk Pivdenmash.

 

According to Dnipropetrovsk. Kommentarii, the crucifix has a height of 12 meters.

The sculptor Harnyk Khachatryan said that the cross is made of iron, which is symbolic for a city with a lot of heavy industry.

The unveiling of the giant sculpture was attended by hundreds of believers and local officials and MPs.

The sculpture was made and installed at the expense of local entrepreneurs, who, along with local government officials, were presented with awards from the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Moscow Patriarchate.

The unveiling ceremony did not go quite according to plan, as the crown of thorns on the head of Christ tore the canvas which covered sculpture, so the “ribbon cutting” was no successful.

      The potential problem is, given the nature of the eastern Christian faiths as being generally susceptible to phyletism (certainly evidence in Fr. MykolaIzhak's statement above), more emphasis will

      Догналіти за гроші Кремля проповідують не Христа, а зомбують людей, провокують непорядки, нападають на людей, захоплюють майно, роблять зі своїх адептів злочинців. І були знаряддям в руках Путіна,

      А до того, що догналіти проповідують Христа,дорікають папі і верхівці УГКЦ, що відійшли від істинного христи-янства.Попереджали, що євромайдан принесе Україні горе і страждання. Згідно фатімських
