In the presence of a large number of Belgraders, Serbian president Alеksandar Vučić and foreign minister of the Russian Federation Sеrgеy Lavrov attended the official presentation of a mosaic in the St Sava cathedral. The mosaic shows Christ ascending to the heavens on the cupola 65 metres above ground.
This has been one of the greatest mosaic decoration projects in the world. The 40-tonne decoration was composed in Moscow taking a year to make, then transported to Belgrade. The mosaic is a work by artists led by the famous Nikolaj Muhin, financed with €4 million by the Russian company Gaspromnjеft.
