A protest action is being held in Kharkiv against the demolition of the Baptist House of prayer in the Russian city of Arkhangelsk.

According to Depo.Kharkiv, this is reported by users of social networks.

As eyewitnesses report, ten citizens are taking part in the protest. People are holding photos of the Baptist House of prayer in Arkhangelsk, which a Russian court decided to demolish.

In addition, people hold placards with the words "we ask you to restore the legality of preserving the House of prayer in Arkhangelsk", "we ask you to stand up for our co-religionists of the ECB Church. They destroy the House of Prayer."

Participants of the protest action oppose the oppression of Baptists in Russia.

As reported, in Russia, the courts have been prohibiting the activities of Baptist cells, starting in 2019. In September 2020, in Arkhangelsk, the authorities managed to secure in the court the decision on demolition of the House of Prayer, where local Baptists performed their services.
