Armenians to Build New Church in Kiev

Ukrainian President Viktor F. Yanukovych has committed to helping the Armenian Orthodox Diocese of Kiev build a new church in the Ukrainian capital. Although 40,000 Armenians live in Kiev there is at present only one chapel in use by the Armenian Orthodox Church in the country and it accommodates under 20 people. Efforts were made to build a larger church during the presidency of Viktor A. Yushchenko, but the authorities refused to authorize the construction plans. More here.
