🇺🇦 🇷🇺 The largest Orthodox wooden church in Ukraine is burning – the Wooden All Saints Skete of the Svyatogorsk Lavra of the Moscow Patriarchate, opened in the 16th century was attacked by Ukrainian militants…

This is why Ukraine will never get the lands back. Ever never and they keep this stuff up. They will loose the whole country…
