Icon Resurrection Gate.jpg

Red Square, Moscow, Russia

A Christian icon recently has been installed in the wall behind the Resurrection Gate inside Red Square. The Communist government that ruled the Soviet Union from 1917 to 1991 had removed many icons and other religious symbols from Red Square.
