About a cross, cut down on one of the mountain tops of Adygeya it had been informed on August, 18th by the republican TV. Under that version the cross had stood on the mountain - but not Tkhach, and Fisht (the main top of Adygeya).
“News about it had informed in the beginning of August from the tourist whom for many years worked in the Caucasian reserve, and now on the regular basis accompanies tourists’ groups to the top of Fisht”, - it was spoken in the message.
That tourist told the following by phone: ‘The cross at Fisht’s top I had seen for the last time on July, 31st, 2009. On 5-th or 6-th of August (now I do not remember precisely) when I had climbed there with a group of people including representatives from Adygeya and Sochi, the cross was absent on its place. There could be seen a fresh cut traces there: a part was cut, and a part was broken off”.
The republican TV reminded that such crosses had been fixed by the All-Russia religious procession on all the known mountain tops of Russia in honour of the 1000 anniversary of christening of Russia - including Fisht mountain and Great Tkhach.
