Chief Architect of Kyiv Ready to Resign Because of Tithe Church
Chief architect of Kyiv, Serhii Tselovalnyk, will be prepared to resign if the authorities promote the project of construction of a new church in the place of the ancient Tithe Church. The project is supported by the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Moscow Patriarchate, reported Kyiv.comments.ua.
“I have been trying to explain to very influential people for a long time that it is not acceptable to build a new church on the remnants of the Tithe Church, which is a part of the world heritage. To make a museum and preserve the artifacts of the archeological excavations which are found 2.8 meters under the earth, it is sufficient to build a light but strong shed (to make sure it does not collapse under the weight of snow like the previous one,” said the architect.
