Natalya Mihailova | 12 March 2018

Unknown arsonists set fire to the Holy Transfiguration Cathedral located near the city tuberculosis dispensary №1 in the Obolon District in Kiev.

According to the Kiev Metropolia website, vandals broke a window, poured in a combustible mixture and set the Cathedral on fire on the night of March 10, approximately at 3 a.m.

The police arrived on the scene and launched an investigation.

The Cathedral was significantly damaged and is now in need of repair.

This is not the first occurrence of vandalism against the Cathedral. On October 1st 2015 malefactors wrote offensive graffiti against the Ukrainian Orthodox Church on the walls of the building.

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 dollars a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 dollars a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
