Less paranormal events happen in Ostankino TV center thanks to its church - daily

Moscow, March 24, Interfax - After St. Porphyrius Church opened in the Ostankino TV center, ghosts who, according to numerous witnesses, lived there, started leaving the complex, the Komsomolskaya Pravda daily reports on Thursday.

"If there were paranormal phenomena, now they are disappearing. The place where the church is situated and divine services are celebrated gets great blessing," cleric of the local church Deacon Dimitry Danilov was quoted as saying.

TV center outskirts have been considered rotten from the old times. Some researchers believe that there were impassable swamps here in the 15th century and once a year suicides were buried in the swamps: their bodies were thrown down and the bog sucked them in.

According to one of the versions, the word Ostankino originates from Russian ostanki, remnants.

Building of the Ostankino tower gave new life to old myths. Psychics claim that big antenna directed to the space attracts negative energy.

Priests believes that in theory there can be ghosts in the TV center as certain programs produced here promote sin and debauchery.
