KIEV, January 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Archpriest Viktor Ivashuk, secretary of Kiev’s diocese, stated that the situation in Kiev, where disorders on the Grushevsky street have not ceased for over four days, will not affect plans to bring the holy Christian relic to the city – Gifts of the Magi.
The spokesman said: “Our plans have not changed. Gifts of the Magi are to arrive to Kiev Friday around 4pm GTM+2. In half an hour they will be transported to Kiev Pechersk Lavra; they will be placed at the Dormition Cathedral of the Lavra and after a prayer commemorating their arrival, Gifts of the Magi will be accessible to the devout.”
The Reverend Georgy Kovalenko, an official spokesman for the Ukrainian Orthodox Church reporting to the Moscow Patriarchate, expressed hopes to ITAR-TASS correspondent that the arrival of Gifts of the Magi to Kiev will placate the society.
