Russia to help Kosovo restore Orthodox shrines

admin | 12 February 2013

Russia is planning to allocate money on restoration of Orthodox Christian historic monuments in Kosovo.

This was announced by a member of the Russian parliament’s lower house’s Committee for Foreign Affairs Alexander Karelin.

Earlier, Russia has already allocated $ 2 mln for this purpose through UNESCO.

In January 2013, more than 150 Serbian graves were vandalized in Kosovo. Besides, an attempt of an attack on an Orthodox monastery in the town of Jacovica was undertaken, an Orthodox church in the town of Obilic was set on fire, and a monument to heroes of WWII in the town of Vitina was exploded.
