On Saturday, Moscow Mayor S S Sobyanin said on the documentary Тайна спасения (Taina spaseniya: The Mystery of Salvation), broadcast on TVTs on Patriarch Kirill’s birthday:

The state has to aid the Church in reconstructing what it destroyed, for the destruction took place because of its direct actions. The construction project covering 200 new churches in Moscow is local, but the work of restoring existing church buildings and reconstructing destroyed buildings is much more important. This involves dozens of church buildings, which are the adornment of Moscow, they’re its historical memory. The project for such restoration and rebuilding is quite difficult and quite expensive, but the city will help the Church to the best of its ability, to the last rouble.
