Thomas Sunday was celebrated in a unique way by the Russian Boxing Federation yesterday, as the group launched a giant banner icon of Christ into sky over the city of Serpukhov, near Moscow.

The launch was meant as a show of support to fans during the coronavirus pandemic, reports

The icon, with an area of several dozens of square meters, set off with the help of a hot air balloon.

This is the second such event from the Russian boxers. A giant icon of Christ was also launched into the air last week in Kamensk-Uralsk.

“We help people with masks and antiseptics, we help with groceries, we do good deeds, we are raising spirituality! Boxing for a strong Russia! Boxing unites!” the organization said in a message about the event.

The Russian Orthodox Church has not officially commented on the two launches.
