      If the Preamble to the Law on the Freedom of Conscience and on
      Religious Organizations refers to a special role of Orthodoxy
      in the history of Russia, why then the school curriculum is silent
      about this role?

      Lightning struck and smashed to pieces a ten-meter cross set up by
      the unrecognized Patriarchate of Kiev

      Moscow, August 25, Interfax - A lightning struck and smashed to
      pieces a ten-meter cross which was set up and �consecrated� by a
      bishop of the self-declared Patriarchate of Kiev.

      Kolokola Volyni newspaper reports that the fragments of the
      schismatic cross were found at 30-meters range. Lightning rods and
      haystacks around the cross were not damaged.

      Yakov Panchuk, metropolitan of the unrecognized in the Orthodox world
      Patriarchate of Kiev, set up this cross at the Vetly village, Lybesh
      district, on the site intended for construction of a church. However,
      the villagers did not want to build the church there and constructed
      it in two hundred meters away from the cross.

      Soon after the villagers and the priest repented in the schism and
      jointed the canonical Church. Metropolitan Nifont of Lutsk and Volyn
      consecrated the church in 2003.

      Recently, on the eve of Ukraine�s Independence Day and after the
      Volyn governor granted the status of the Great Patriotic War veterans
      to Stepan Bandera�s terrorists, the lightning struck the cross and
      smashed it to pieces, the Pravaya.ru reports.
