UNESCO experts to consider the chances of restoring Kremlin historical image including its two monasteries

Experts started inspecting the Kremlin territory, a source in the Culture Ministry told Interfax.

UNESCO expertise is a compulsory condition for starting such restoration works as Kremlin is the object of the World cultural heritage.

This July, Russian President Vladimir Putin supported the idea of refusing the ongoing reconstruction of the Kremlin 14th corpus and restoring historical appearance of the place with possible restoration of two monasteries existing there as cultural objects.

The 14th corpus is an administrative building located between the Spassky Gates and the Senate Palace of the Moscow Kremlin. It is listed among the buildings that form the Ivanovskaya Square. The building was constructed in 1931-1934.

Since you are here…

…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 euros 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 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.

Dear Friends,

Our website exists owing to your generous assistance, thanks to the funds donated by our beloved readers.

Please assist us in the continuation of our work.
