THE grave of a Russian princess left barely recognisable has been restored to look as good as new.
This year the 300th Anniversary of the presence of the Russian Church in the UK is being celebrated. The highlight will be the re-dedication of the Cathedral of the Dormition in London by the Patriarch of Moscow and All-Russia, Metropolitan Kirill. There are two videos that have been produced about this event:
