“Right now, the wooden All Saints Skete of the Svyatogorsk Lavra of the Moscow Patriarchate is on fire,” Kochevenko wrote on Facebook.
In the UOC-MP confirmed the fact of an attack on the All Saints Skete: “As a result of hostilities, a large-scale fire broke out on the territory of the All Saints Skete of the Holy Assumption Svyatogorsk Lavra. The flame completely engulfed the main temple of the monastery.”
All Saints Skete was built in 1912. This is one of the best examples of the inheritance of wooden temple architecture.
Over the past month, the Svyatogorsk Lavra has come under fire from the occupiers several times. On May 9, the occupiers destroyed St. George Skete of the Svyatogorsk Lavra.
