The monument to Kirill and Mephody
The author of the monument - the sculptor Vyacheslav Klykov - tells that, when the Kirill and Mephody Monument was erected, there was a icon-lamp burning in a niche at the pedestal. However, some time later it had to be removed, because it had been repeatedly fired at. The bulletproof glass that protected the icon-lamp was all over in cracks. Fortunately, the icon-lamp itself was not damaged, but it had to be taken to the church building. However, even the empty niche of the pedestal was later fired at again. In the sculptor's opinion, the Russian sacred objects seem to irritate somebody.
