Radio KiM reports that the remains of the Orthodox Church of St Nicholas in Novo Brdo is being converted by Pristina authorities into a three-necked basilica, which is a great forgery, warned Marko Popovic, co-author of the monograph dedicated to the church.

Popovic claims that a part of the conservation works has already been done, and on the board in front of the site, a reconstruction project has been shown that has nothing to do with the actual situation, reported KIM radio.

KIM radio reports that Kosovo prime minister Ramush Haradinaj recently posted on his Facebook profile that the German state financed a project “important for our culture and history”. It is about the reconstruction of the Orthodox Church of St Nicholas in Novo Brdo, which Haradinaj presented as “Catholic”.

This was confirmed to Sputnik by Doctor of Science Marko Popovic,co-author of the monograph “Church of St Nicholas – the cathedral of the town of Novi Brdo”. The monograph was published by the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Monuments of Serbia.

Popovic says that the Serbian researchers immediately alarmed the Visoki Decani Monastery and the authorities in order that the right research and truth about the church would reach the German ambassador.
