  1. Why always and immediately the comment “probably terrorist action is suspected” jumps out? Otherwise regarding fairness, it is better to list all probabilities. Next can we do some deep research and then make a claim?

  2. the roof, the roof, the roof is on fire… we dont need no water let the mother…… burn. burn mother ……! Burn!

    terrorists? come on! its an old building. i think you should investigate before you go jumping to conclusions! its like ” OMG theres an earthquake… must be terrorists!”

  3. Here is a picture of the church before it caught on fire. It was one of many beautiful churches in this great city:

  4. well considering on the BBC news site it specifically says it was started by a welder’s torch spark hitting cylinders of gas…I think we should probably go with that instead of terrorists. Terrorists are the cause for many things, and many people have a heightened sense of fear every time something blows up, but this time it seems it was just a tragic accident.

  5. Big deal, a house that has been used to spread lies about the world and the people that live in it is on fire.

    I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours – Stephen Roberts

  6. I used to live not far from the cathedral and saw it daily, the scaffolding on it eternally due to lack of money, but it’s so tragic to see it burning. There was a large market behind it, so it’d be interesting to see the affect on that. Thank goodness they got the icons out and no one was hurt. I didn’t see the cause of the fire, but fireworks are a possibility.

  7. And another part of russia’s history goes up in flames, tragic event for russia and mankind. Too bad peoplke blame anything bad on terrorists, even accidents. The way churches brainwashed minds in the middle-ages spindoctors do now…

  9. Soooo, when will we see the church suddenly crumble on its on position a’ la controlled demolition? 9-11 anyone LMAO!

  10. Damn. Visited SPb two years ago. And only saw it from far away. Wanted to visit it last year. To see it being restored. So I couldn’t. Damn, this was a real eye catcher from Nevskii Prospect and Isaac Cathedral.

  11. Very fitting I think: “God is the inner principle of all movement, the only identity which already fulfils and illuminates the universe. Everything is incorporated in this one principle, because it encloses infinity, it includes everything, and there is nothing that could be outside of it. ” Giordano Bruno

  12. Reminds me of when St Patrick’s church at Parramatta got burnt when a mentally illness person broke in to start a fire.

  13. Oh good! Finally someone in russia burned that abomination down to the ground.

    Trotsky was a genocidal jewish war criminal. No need to have his own church. Seriously who built it in the first place? Im glad Russia and Russian finally see who the jewish bolsheviks really were.

    Excellent photos
