Yesterday a man, whose name is still unknown, threw a smoke bomb into St. Basil’s Cathedral and tried to flee. Later he was detained by the police.


Police informs that nobody was injured at the accident.


This summer St. Basil’s Cathedral celebrated its 450th anniversary. It is one of the most popular tourist attraction. St. Basil’s Cathedral was built by Ivan the Terrible between 1555 and 1561. According to legends, the builder of this Cathedral was blinded so that such a beautiful structure could never be built again. The Cathedral is vividly colorful and contains red brick towers that add to its beauty. The church consists of nine chapels, each mounted with its individual dome that marks the assault on the city of Kazan and its inclusion into the Russian State.
