MOSCOW/TASS/ Chairman of the Moscow Patriarchate’s Synodal Department for Society and Mass Media Relations Vladimir Legoyda on Sunday criticized the recent burning of a copy of the Quran in Sweden.
"The Quran burning near the Turkish embassy in Sweden is an act of unacceptable vandalism," he said on Telegram. "One shouldn’t spit at something that’s sacred for another person. One shouldn’t as part of political struggle cross the boundaries of humaneness and desecrate holy things."
The Russian Muslim community earlier also condemned the burning.
