CWN Editor's Note: “In response to numerous requests from Orthodox believers, Russian President Vladimir Putin has made a decision to return the miraculous Holy Trinity icon painted by Rev. Andrey Rublev to the Russian Orthodox Church,” the Moscow Patriarch said in a statement.

Critics of the decision contended that the famed icon would be better preserved if it were kept in the gallery in which it has been located since 1929.
