Explosive damages Orthodox Church in Russia

| December 8, 2009

Last Sunday at about 4:00 in the morning, an Orthodox Church at Vladimir State University in Russia was attacked. An unidentified person smashed some sort of explosive device through one of the windows of the church building. The devise appeared to have been self-made.

It is estimated that the weapon thrown into the building was around fifty grams in TNT equivalent; regardless, nobody was harmed–only the church building sustained moderate damage.

There were originally rumors of some sort of leaflet attached to the explosive, but that has yet to be confirmed. The Vladimir Region Interior Ministry, the Federal Security Service Directorate and Ministry of the Emergency Situations have been working at the site and continue to investigate.
