Not Words, But Actions
Vladimir Katsuba, a people’s deputy of Ukraine
and the founder of Katsuba Corporation, is a rather nonpublic figure. Vladimir
Mikhailovich doesn’t appear on television often and seldom gives interviews,
but the name of Katsuba is very well known in Kharkov region owing to concrete works of the
people bearing it, namely, their charitable activities.
Recently, Vladimir Mikhailovich was present at the
grand opening of the Temple of the Intercession
of the Mother of God in the village
of Polevaya. It is
noteworthy that the temple’s construction was financed in full by the Katsuba
family! And Vladimir Mikhailovich came to the opening ceremony with an
offering. He presented a church bell to the Temple. Previously, the village did not have
a church and believers had to go to a neighboring village for service. It was
challenging for the elderly, and young families with little children also had a
hard time getting to church.
A few years ago, Vladimir Katsuba learned about the
situation, and, adhering too high church morals and supporting the spiritual
development of the region, the Katsuba family jointly decided to provide help
in building a church. This decision was not touted at every corner and no
credit was proudly taken for it; they just organized and completely financed
the construction of the Temple.
To date, the temple has been built, sanctified and
opened for all believers, for which the residents of Polevaya village are
sincerely grateful to Vladimir Mikhailovich!
