This was reported by the press service of the Kyiv Pechersk Lavra.
"Starting July 5, 2023, at the initiative of the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra National Reserve, visitor access to the Lower Lavra (Kyiv-Pechersk Monastery) will be restricted. Visitors will be allowed to stay on this territory from 09:00 to 18:00," the statement reads.
As reported, yesterday the faithful of the UOC-MP did not allow the Commission of the National Reserve "Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra" to check and seal the vacated buildings of the Lower Lavra.
The Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra National Reserve announced the termination of the lease agreement with the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate on March 29, 2023, but for a long time, unknown people locked the Lavra's premises from the inside and prevented the start of the property inventory commission.
