      FRIENDS OF THE RUSSIAN CHURCH IN NICE

      On 13 November 2006, an action at law was taken by the Russian
      Federation against the church association (A.C.O.R.) that, since the
      early 1920s, has been in charge of the Orthodox Parish of Saint
      Nicolas in Nice. The Russian Federation claims ownership of the
      buildings on the pretext that the land on which the
      Cathedral of Saint Nicolas (better known as "the Russian Church of
      Nice") was built, belonged to the Imperial Family of Russia before
      the October 1917 Revolution.

      As an officially listed building, the content of which has just been
      granted statutory protection by the French authorities as pertaining
      to the national heritage, the Russian Church of Nice is firmly
      assimilated in the cultural history of Nice and France.

      The Russian Federation's claims are questionable from the historical,
      ethical and legal points of view. The Parish of Saint Nicolas should
      therefore win the case in French law as long as it meets the costs of
      its defence against the superpower – the Russian State :
      this is undoubtedly an uneven contest.

      A.C.O.R. is therefore launching an appeal for public support. All
      types of aid and encouragement, any contribution to the legal costs,
      however small, would be welcome.
