Moscow, March 1, Interfax - Chief architect of Moscow Alexander Kazmin
believes there is enough space at the Poklonnaya Gora for building
religious institutes of various confessions.

"It's normal. There will be a Buddhist stupa, an Armenian chapel and
a Catholic church," the Rossiyskaya Gazeta has quoted Kazmin as saying
on Monday.

"People of various confessions participated in the Great Patriotic
War. There are fewer veterans left, but they have grandchildren and
grand grandchildren," he reminded.

"It's necessary that each of them coming to the Poklonnaya Gora to
commemorate his or her relative can light a candle," Kazmin added.

Today there is an Orthodox church, a synagogue and a mosque at the
Poklonnaya Gora.
