You're reading: The first mosque in Kyiv

I was pleased to take up this invitation and had an interesting discussion with him about Islam, and the history of inter-denominational relations, in Ukraine.

At that time, the Mufti showed me the plans for the proposed new mosque in Kyiv, on an escarpment above Podil. They looked pretty ambitious to me; but he assured me that, with the right planning permissions, the mosque would be built.

I was therefore delighted to be invited, along with many others, to the opening of the new “Ar-Rahma” mosque in Kyiv on 2 December.
