(TsehaiNY) – The Voice of Russia reports the famous Russian explorer, Fyodor Konyukhow, has become the first European to see the Ark of the Covenant in Ethiopia.

According to the report, Konykhov is in Ethiopia at the request of the Ethiopian government to map out new tourist routes and has also struck a deal for the construction of an Orthodox Church of St. George in Addis Ababa.  The report also notes Konyukhow was recently ordained as an Orthodox deacon.

The Arc of the Covenant was brought to Ethiopia by Menelik I and is believed to be housed and guarded near the Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion in Axum, Ethiopia.

The Covenant cannot be seen by anyone but the High Priest of Axum, a holy monk who is responsible with guarding the Covenant, naming a successor on his deathbed.

    No one, not even the prime minister of Ethiopia would have a chance to see the Arc of the covenant.
    You should be ashamed of yourselves for posting such a lie.

    Mesfin, nothing surprises me anymore regarding the news that comes out of Ethiopia these days. What makes you so sure?! Anyway, i will follow this story in the days and weeks to come.

    According to my great great grand father, who was a high priest and who told the story to my grand father, Emperor Minilik deployed the Arc of the Covenant to beat the heck out of the Italians at the battle of Adawa. Given that Axum, where the Arc is currently located, is near Adawa, one wonders whether this could be true.

    Hey guys the title of the article has question mark. This guy clearly never saw the Arc. The writer is obviously writing in such manner to get traffic and attention to his article, nothing more.
