“Pray at home,” she answered the question about the reasons for her actions.
She also called the incident “bad behavior” and stated that no one else knows about this act.
Ministry spokeswoman Irina Volk said the suspect was detained in her St. Petersburg apartment on Polyustrovskiy Prospekt. Also, a stolen shrine was found in the apartment.
In the near future, a particle of the relics will be returned to the temple.
