"As soon as weather conditions will match necessary standards, we above all will continue facade work from the mark 13.2 m and higher, on the level of the central vault of the church, its pylon parts. After the completion of this the scaffolding will be dismantled and the roof work of the central vault of the Patriarchal Cathedral with specially treated (already a green color) copper which was previously bought will start," the assistant of the general director continued. As Bishop Bohdan (Dzyurakh), head of the supervisory council for the construction of the Patriarchal Center reported during a regular meeting of the Committee on the Construction of the Patriarchal Center of the UGCC, in general in 2009 it is planned to execute work totaling approximately 13 million hryvnias.
