800 Million Rubles Allocated for Restoration of Convent

Nearly 800 million rubles have been allocated by the authorities for restoration of the nearly burnt Novodevichy Convent in Moscow.

      It is reported that the funds will be used for repairing its towers and walls, as well as several chambers.

      Following the decision of the Culture Ministry of the Russian Federation, 800 million rubles will be ascribed from the state budget to restoration of the recently burned convent in Moscow.

According to reports of the RF Ministry of Emergency Situations, the fire spread over the area of 300 sq m and destroyed wooden constructions. The fire was completely localized within three hours.
