Ground caving in Kyivo-Pecherskaya Lavra
The monk passes nearby the hole, formed in the course of the ground caving-in in the underground communications of the Kyivo-Pecherskaya Lavra, in neighborhood with the Near Caves (Monday, August 2, 1999, Kyiv). The Lavra underground communications are quite intricated, making the combination of ways, canalization and water-supply, which have been stratified one over the other during the centuries. So the recently happened removal of the ground into the drainage edit can lead to the dangerous for historical construction after-effects. The people, who dwelled in the 44th cloister building, were moved to the safe place.
