The Sviatohirsk Lavra monastery in the north of the region was housing hundreds of civilians, according to Ukrainian Minister of Culture and Information Policy Oleksandr Tkachenko.


There were reportedly 300 civilians among the monks and nuns, including an estimated 60 children, he tweeted with a photo:


"Skete of All Saints of the Holy Dormition Svyatogorsk Lavra is now on fire caused by russia's hostilities. There were about 300 refugees, about 60 children. Racists continue to prove their inability to be part of civilized world. And 133 🇺🇦 religious buildings already suffered from russia."


The largest wooden church in Ukraine was constructed in 1912, and Zelenskyy called on Russia to be expelled from the United Nations cultural agency UNESCO.

"Every Orthodox church burned by Russia in Ukraine, every blown up school, and every destroyed monument prove that there is no room for Russia in the UNESCO," Zelenskyy wrote Telegram.


"It [skete] was blessed in 1912. First it was destroyed during the Soviet rule. Then it was rebuilt. Today it was burned by the Russian army."
