Ancient Church Bells Return from USA to Russia

On 10th August a ship with seventeen historic bells of the Moscow St. Daniel Monastery on board started off from the port of New York towards Russia.
      The first bell out of this group was delivered to Moscow by plane last autumn.
      Back in 1930 eighteen bells of the St. Daniel Monastery were sent from Moscow to the USA in order to save them. The bells were kept in the Harvard University. After the decision to bring the bells back to Russia, producing of the bells replicas was initiated in Voronezh to present them to Harvard in return.
