The discussion of this issue took place, according to the newspaper, at a recent meeting, which was attended by representatives of the municipality, the diocese and police.
“They want a tent city on the lawn of the “Cosmos” [concert theater in the city center] because it is very close to the temple, — has informed a source in administration. But we do not allow, because almost parallel to all [international exhibition] the EXHIBITION, “Cosmos” will be held the opening ceremony, and the neighborhood of the camp of the pilgrims the event is not quite right.”
