the monastery was built as a fortress?
even if that's true its a bit early for that kind of speculation don't you think

It looks as thought the tower was undergoing some maintenance work, with scaffolding all around it.
It's plausible that this is just a coincidence, an accidental fire caused by contractors working on the construction.

Still, it is coincidental that this has happened at this particular time.

Or it is Ivan the Great that is burning. I have to compare these pictures and see first, but this is inside the big red walls and it burns, right?

Here's a Wikipedia link to the convent, I'll grab a couple paragraphs.

en.wikipedia.org...


Novodevichy Convent, also known as Bogoroditse-Smolensky Monastery (Russian: Новоде́вичий монасты́рь, Богоро́дице-Смоле́нский монасты́рь), is probably the best-known cloister of Moscow. Its name, sometimes translated as the New Maidens' Monastery, was devised to differ from an ancient maidens' convent within the Moscow Kremlin. Unlike other Moscow cloisters, it has remained virtually intact since the 17th century. In 2004, it was proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage Site.



In 1922, the Bolsheviks closed down the Novodevichy Convent (the cathedral was the last to be closed, in 1929) and turned it into the Museum of Women's Emancipation. By 1926, the monastery had been transformed into a history and art museum. In 1934, it became affiliated with the State Historical Museum. Most of its facilities were turned into apartments, which spared the convent from destruction.

In 1943, when Stalin started to make advances to the Russian Orthodox Church during World War II, he sanctioned opening the Moscow Theological Courses at the convent. Next year the program was transformed and became the Moscow Theological Institute. In 1945, the Soviets returned Assumption Cathedral to the believers. The residence of the Metropolitan of Krutitsy and Kolomna has been located in the Novodevichy Convent since 1980.

In 1994, nuns returned to the convent, which is currently under the authority of the Metropolitan of Krutitsy and Kolomna. Some of the churches and other monastic buildings are still affiliated with the State Historical Museum. In 1995, religious resumed services in the convent on patron saint's days.

None of the pictures I have seen show any lights from emergency vehicles... fire, ems, police, etc. If this was just an ordinary fire, you would think emergency vehicles would be all over the place and the lights from said vehicles would be reflecting off of everything.

I haven't been on the edge of my seat for so long since the day MH370 vanished. I really want to know what is happening over there because I'm 75% convinced something world changing is happening.

The aliens are running late having to stop at a different star system to refuel on a moon before heading for the Red Square and the announcement will now come on Monday.

Yes, it may be coincidence. But when the main Russian TV channel showing preplanned film with Putin explaining Crimea annexation this coincidence of fire in ancient Novodevichy monastery looking like a sign from above ...

I'm not mystical person most of the time, but this is rare sign.

This is definitely not your average everyday fire.
And this definitely has not been your average day of viewership on Moscow Earthcam.
I'm actually still a little stunned that we just really watched this happen in real time.

Just way too coincidental for me, folks. What the Hell is going on?

This clips shows multiple emergency lights at the site of the fire.

The important thing to remember here is that this is not in the Kremlin, it's 4.5km from the Kremlin. Not attached to it in any way, two entirely different structures, separated by a long stretch of central Moscow.

It's also clear that there's scaffolding around the structure, meaning that it was being renovated/repaired. It's likely that this was the result of a contractor accident or fault.

Absolutely no TV channels are showing this.

According to this map, there are 2 fires? But both appear to be the same building, so must be an error.
