Kiev. The 1970s in the Soviet Union are remembered for space revolution. During that time, in the Soviet Union, large numbers of space missions and programs were being promoted to counter America. In the meantime, anti-religious campaigns across the country were also holding fast. Under it many churches and religious places were being broken. In such a way, it was turned into a space museum to save a traditional wooden wood located in Pereyaslav city. For the past 49 years, this church-museum has memorized Soviet space missions. Now people have demanded to convert the museum to the church completely.

             Soviet rule wanted to end people’s faith in God

According to Sergei Volkodav, the Chief Curator of the Museum, the Soviet government wanted to fulfill the success of its space mission in the minds of everyone in the 70’s. During that time the space flight was also becoming very popular. The government wanted the child to dream of becoming astronaut.

It is said that by promoting space programs, the Soviet government wanted to convey to the people that God was not there. This led to the destruction of many churches. At the same time, the construction of some churches was also used to showcase long-rocket rockets. Some were completely prepared like Planetariums.

In this 1891 church, about 450 items related to space operations were kept. It includes the parachute of the world’s first astronaut Yuri Gagarin, along with the spacewalk of Astronaut Wysslaw Judov, who made a spacewalk in 1976. Apart from this, astronauts and many private things also became part of the building.

After independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, Ukraine again found religious independence. However, for the last 28 years, this museum has never been tried. However, after the Russian churches were out of the union a few days ago, it is now being advocated to change it. People want the Space Museum to be completely converted into a church. However, some clerics have opposed it. According to curator Volkodava, it is the only museum church in the world. Therefore, it should be left as it is.
