Church of Cyprus should donate the churches currently in the occupied territories to the Russian Orthodox Church.

Then Putin can give the order to go and crown them with Golden Domes ...

Aahh, bless! :D

There seems to be a lot of Russian influence in Cyprus.

Russians don't require a donation.

They are dealing in stolen GC property and I don't recall any GCs donating it to our Orthodox brothers.

The last time I went to Kyrenia Limani, I was at a seafront cafe owned by Russians. The surrounding tables were also occupied by Russian speakers. There were more Russians than GC or TC or Brits. Didn't see one Brit, just some Russians, a couple of GCs and a lot of Kurds from Anatolia.

This was a few years ago (2004) and I never went there since.

There is (at least) one of these churches in London. You can see it just by the side and at the end of the M4. It isn't really an indication of Russian "influence". Not that I'm saying there isn't any such thing here. Clearly, that's not the case.

Yes, the domes are made of titanium nitride and were shipped in from St Petersburg.

Paphitis, coming to conclusions based on what you heard in a cafe and then coming here to offer it as facts is what we call "κουβέντες του καφενέ". I have the census of the pseudo state from 2011. Here is what it says:

GENEL TOPLAM 286,257
KKTC TOPLAM 190,494
- YALNIZ KKTC 136,362
- KKTC - Türkiye 38,085
- KKTC - Diğer 16,047
TÜRKİYE 80,550
Birleşik Krallık 3,693
Türkmenistan 1,760
Nijerya 1,280
İran İslam Cumhuriyeti 1,152
Pakistan 1,075
Bulgaristan 920
Azerbeycan 835
Diğer 4,498


Birleşik Krallık = United Kingdom, Diğer = Other. The rest you can figure it out. Russians are not even mentioned so they must have been less than 835, while the British were 3693.

It is out of place in Cyprus... at least it is not as ugly as some of the monster churches that we have!
