Holy Shield

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev confident that with restoration of icons on the towers of Moscow Kremlin, Russia and its people will gain extra protection.

A fresco of Christ on the Kremlin Wall in Moscow, rediscovered after being plastered over after the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution, has been presented in a ceremony attended by Patriarch Kirill I of the Russian Orthodox Church and Dmitry Medvedev.

“We should think kindly of those who helped to preserve this icon during the period of atheism, risking their lives, who have kept this wonder for generations to come, for those who are here today on the Red Square, for those who will come to the Kremlin and get inspiration from this image, which protects the Kremlin, Moscow and all of us“, - said Medvedev.

“I am sure, that with restoration of the icons our country receives additional protection,” - said Medvedev.
