On 19th September 2018, the World Russian People’s Council met in the Ural city of Zlatoust. The event was timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Chelyabinsk Diocese, as well as the year marking the 100th anniversary of the death of the Imperial family, and the 150th anniversary of the birth of Nicholas II.
A monument to Emperor Nicholas II was installed in the courtyard of the Cathedral of St. Seraphim in Zlatoust. The monument by the sculptor Alexander Sadovsky, was consecrated, followed by prayers and hymns sung by the church choir. In addition, the relics of St. Andrew the First-Called were brought to Zlatoust.
