Burning a Huge Catholic Cathedral for Russian Oldest Pagan Holiday [photos + videos]

This was a Maslenitsa week and it is called the oldest surviving Slavic holiday in history, it’s roots being traced back to pre-Christened Russia and Eastern Europe. What they do at the climax of the holiday – they burn a scare crow (of winter some say). However this time they burned something else..


They have burned down a huge Catholic Cathedral and watched it burn.




If you for a minute thought what savage act it is? Well they didn’t burn the cathedral exactly but rather its model, however it looked very spectacular, here is couple of the videos:

Here is an episode how it all happened, paired with a dark music… You get the feel.


And this is a timelapse of the whole structure burned

People were happy.

And that’s how it initially looked like, there shouldn’t be a doubt it’s a Catholic Cathedral probably.

    And the symbolism is what?

    Life in Russia is full of symbolism. If this makes people happy …so be it. The Roman Pope is not welcome in Russia….good for them.

    Well… with all the BS the catholic church is responsible for I say good for them…

    Oh why dont you mention the atrocities of orthodox Russan church against the Catholics during Stalin’s rule? You still have the patriarch who was a KGB agent. As for pagans, I don’t know what is this good for. A malevolent provocation.

    Symbolism of burning the antichrist.
