Summary translation: St. Peter’s Lutheran Church of Maliye Kolpany, Leningrad Oblast, has to meet in a small part of the big church building and is able to seat only 70 instead of 700 people. The church is located on the territory of Avangard Factory. An explosion in a factory building nearby went off in October 2018. The blast also hit the 200-year-old Lutheran church. The roof, girders, floor slabs, ceiling joists were damaged. Shattered windowpanes and broken window frames. Two years after the explosion, the situation is the same as it was after small makeshift repairs were done by volunteers, church members, and caring local residents although the church building is officially a historical heritage item of federal importance. Czar Paul I gave orders to build it in 1800. Debris are everywhere and it’s very cold inside as there are many holes in the walls, roof, and windows. The number-one problem is the roof which is in an emergency condition. No requests addressed to the local government or the Governor have resulted in any assistance such as money, volunteers or materials. The church has not been included in any long-term renovation program and continues to send letters to the government. The first and foremost obstacle is the legal status of the land on which the church sits, which is still not fully clear. The church congregation has no title deed for the land, so they can’t get on any governmental program of renovation. The building continues to deteriorate.
