Kazan, November 18, Interfax - Two churches were set on fire in the Chistopol Diocese of Tatarstan in the early hours of November 17, Tatarstan's Metropolia said in a statement.
One of the churches, a prayer house in honor of the Great Martyr Dimitry Solunsky, located in the village of Lenino, in the Novosheshminsky District of Tatarstan, was completely destroyed in the fire. The other church, a church in honor of new Russian martyrs of confessors, located in Chispotol, which is under construction, was salvaged by emergency services, the report says.
Irish Catholic Nuns the perps?
They should be creamed.
Religion of peace. Too bad they both can’t lose.
Tartarstan is a province of Russia and Kazan is its main metropolis. It's about 500 miles east of Moscow (roughly).
Turkmenistan is a fascinating place, though. Ashgabot looks so new and clean that it appears artifical.
You're correct about Ashgabot. It was probably the cleanest city I've ever been in and very industrious. It was kind of half Soviet and half capitalist in that the government owned everything and you could only rent things from them. Also, no guns allowed: not even for the Police or military that I observed.
Kazan is the capital of Tatarstan.
