KIEV, January 27. /TASS/. Unknown attackers set on fire a wooden Orthodox church of Moscow Patriarchate in Kiev early on Tuesday morning, the UNN news agency reported.
The arson, which occurred at 3:18am local time in the Desnyansky district, destroyed the church’s outer wall, dome, cross and also several icons. The fire was quickly extinguished by Ukraine’s rescuers.
“The fire is the act of arson by an unidentified person,” the country’s Emergencies Ministry told the news agency. No one was injured, according to the report.
On Monday, unknown attackers set on fire a church in the Babi Yar memorial complex in Kiev, the scene of a series of massacres carried out by German forces and local collaborators during World War II.
