According to the Turkish MP, two Christian churches are on sale.

There are two Christian churches for sale in Turkey, reports the Austrian newspaper Kronen Zeitung.

Presumably, the temples are being sold to replenish the state budget of Turkey, which is suffering from an acute economic crisis.

The fact was made public in the request of the deputy of the opposition Democratic Party of Peoples Garo Paylan to the Minister of Culture and Tourism of Turkey Mehmet Nuri Ersoy.

Temples of the Greek Orthodox Church in Bursa and the Syrian Orthodox Church in Mardin are on sale for 441 thousand euros and 507.5 thousand euros, respectively. Pailan was outraged by this fact and asked Ersoy a question: “Doesn’t it bother you, Mr Minister? If a mosque were put up for sale anywhere in the world, the whole of Turkey would probably revolt. "

As reported, there was an attempt to sell the existing church of the UOC-KP in Kharkiv.
