Construction of 200 Orthodox Churches in Moscow May Take 10-20 Years - Moscow Mayor's Aide

Moscow, January 28, Interfax - The implementation of a program for the construction of 200 Orthodox churches in Moscow may take 10 to 20 years, Vladimir Resin, an advisor to the Moscow mayor and a State Duma deputy, told journalists.

"I think the whole program may take 10 to 20 years. It is important not only to build them, but also make them habitable," Resin said.

The program will take such a long time as the construction is being financed only by donations, he said.

"Our goal in implementing the program is to commission at least 10 [churches] a year," Resin said.

Seventeen sites for the construction of Orthodox churches will be allotted on the territories of industrial zones being liquidated in Moscow, Resin said.

10 to 20 years will be a bargain for 200 of some of the most beautiful buildings in the world. Well, we should get together and see how far we can get?

Muslims probably wouldn’t let anybody build a church within 50 miles of D.C. right now...
