“The guards coped on their own, they had fire extinguishers,” said Emergency service spokesperson Svitlana Vodolaga.


For the first time, at 4:00 AM, the temple burned on December 4 last year. The priests say that none of them had any conflict or received threats.

    А кого ж це може бути провокація? Казахських націоналістів? А напис "Геть з української землі" та відео на youtube теж казахи організували?

    За часів союза, УПЦ підлягала моіковському патріярхату, примусово. Від незалежності УПЦ старалась отримати незалежність від Москви. Тепер, коли Україна має ТОМОС та незалежність то Лавру потрібно
