Rutkovska said: "The church is wooden. It was part of the national architectural heritage, protection order No.108. This is a genocide of the Ukrainian nation, this conscious destruction of our history by the enemy."

Details: Similarly, it was reported that the Russian troops had fired at a house of prayer belonging to the Evangelical Baptist Christians in the town of Izyum near Kharkiv.

Earlier in March, the Russian shelling of central Kharkiv damaged the 18th-century Holy Dormition Cathedral.
