 The Russians burned all the books from the library of the Church of St. Peter the Mohyla

In Mariupol, the Russian military burned all the books from the library of the church of St. Peter the Mohyla, including unique editions. Petr Andryushchenko, adviser to the mayor of Mariupol, said this.

"In the Church of the OCU of St. Peter the Grave, on a tip and in cooperation with the priests of the Russian Orthodox Church in Mariupol, the entire large library, collected by volunteers and philanthropists, was seized and burned in the courtyard of the temple. The library contained several unique copies of Ukrainian-language editions, which are now lost forever,” Andryushchenko said.

He recalled that the Church of St. Peter the Grave was built with the support of the townspeople and was included in the Book of Records of Ukraine, since it has the largest Petrykivka painting ."Now the occupiers are deciding whether to demolish it or reformat it according to the canons of the Russian Orthodox Church,", the adviser to the mayor added.
