25. Januar 2024

Construction on an interfaith cultural and educational center in the Kommunarka section of Moscow will begin this year. The site will include an Orthodox church, a mosque, a Jewish temple, and a Buddhist temple, representing what the Russian constitution recognizes as the four traditional religions of Russia.

The site will also include a social center for public activists, people with disabilities, and the elderly, and a school for the blind. It is also planned to hold educational events, workshops, and exhibitions. In addition, the interfaith center will be involved in patriotic education, reports TASS.

“We believe that this project will be an important contribution to strengthening interethnic and interreligious harmony,” Mufti Albir Krganov, head of the Spiritual Assembly of Muslims of Russia, said at a meeting with President Vladimir Putin and the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation in November.
