Ukrainian city approves construction of first mosque
A Ukrainian city on Tuesday gave a go ahead for the construction of its first mosque, in a major victory for the region's Muslims.
The city council of the Black Sea port Sevastopol approved the zoning of a central district land plot for the building project, with 71 of 72 council members voting in favour.
Once complete, the mosque would become the first-ever Islamic house of worship in a city dominated by ethnic Slavs following the Orthodox Christian faith.
