The paradox but even if it find guilty of corruption juvenile, awards (in particular such with which marked out really great people - for example, mother Theresa and John Paul II) - church won't be able to withdraw.

To it brought charge of corruption juvenile and pornoproduction production. In a court hall the rector started faltering especially when the speech came about his awards. On a request of the judge to list them, Mikhaylov uncertainly began was to call:
-... Dmitry Solunsky's award... the diploma from the Cabinet, - but I couldn't remember other regalia. And after all if to address to the official biography published on the website of Academy of "water-transport workers", awards there it will be gathered on a good medal level. Is among them and church distinctions.
For example, awards: "The Saint Prince Vladimir equal to the apostles", "Saint Dmitry Solunsky of the IV degree", "Saint Nestor Letopists", and also award of "Nikolay Chudotvorts of I". Having glanced in the book "The Ukrainian orthodox church. Awards and titles", published last year, it is possible to learn, for what the church favors these awards:

All above-mentioned awards are handed over by the highest church hierarches and the metropolitan Vladimir. All prominent deputies and even generals of the Ministry of Internal Affairs have such awards almost. And here the award of "Nikolay Chudotvorts" as which gentleman Mikhaylov is registered, favors Fund of the international awards at UNESCO.
