Quote Astra: "The Aurus car, possibly belonging to Patriarch Kirill, got into an accident in the centre of Moscow.

It is still unknown who was in the car. The Kremlin media write that the car belongs to Patriarch Kirill. The information has not been officially confirmed."

Details: Similar messages were also published by other channels. Baza reports that the accident occurred at 6:30 in the morning at the intersection of Mira Avenue and Hospital Lane. The Volvo car was leaving the lane when the Aurus crashed into it.

As a result of a collision of cars, one person was injured, but he refused hospitalisation.

Baza writes that according to preliminary data, the Aurus car is assigned to Patriarch Kirill, but whether he himself was in the car is still unknown.

The channels also published photos and videos from the scene.

At the same time, the Russian Interfax, citing a source in the Russian Orthodox Church, said that media information about the accident with the car of Patriarch Kirill was not true.

According to the source, allegedly as of 9:50, the Aurus car with Patriarch Kirill was approaching the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour.
