Former Ryazan Metropolitan Pavel called for a revision of the boundaries of “Yesenin Rus”. Writes about it 62INFO.
The Patriarchal Vicar of the Moscow Metropolis, Rector of the Russian University of St. John the Theologian headed the Ryazan diocese during the years of the formation of Yesenin Rus. He remembered the story of how once an elderly resident from one of the Rybnov villages turned to him in search of justice. The pensioner could not attach a new porch to the house instead of the rickety and half-rotted old one. Officials firmly stated that it was impossible for a resident of Yeseninskaya Rus to improve her housing. places left an unpleasant aftertaste. “When it was just being born, I told the initiators – you will piss off the inhabitants of the Rybnovsky district, and stop the development of this beautiful region for a long time. The main motive of the project is to collect money from the population, allegedly to the budget of the district and region. The project was completely unprepared for implementation. People lived for decades in their homes, and tomorrow they wake up – and now they live in a “museum house,” said the Metropolitan of Krutitsy and Kolomna.
historical monument, the poet Sergei Yesenin never visited, and perhaps did not know about their existence. “People remember their evil deed, reaping bitter fruits,” the clergyman said to the initiators of the Yesenin Rus project. It should be noted that in 2022, residents of the Rybnovsky district collected more than 3,000 signatures for the resignation of Igor Kochetkov, deputy chairman of the regional VOOPIIK. I was simply struck by a terrible and ugly newly built building in front of the entrance to Konstantinovo. Here is the result of this crazy project “Yesenin Rus”,” said Metropolitan Pavel.
Recall that the need to revise the border of “Yesenin Rus” was previously recognized by the governor of the Ryazan region Pavel Malkov.
