The Armenian community in different Russian cities, including Saint Petersburg, Rostov-on-Don, Yaroslavl, and Volgograd, celebrated Holy Tuesday. The Armenian church in Moscow shared photos from the celebration.

On Holy Tuesday, during the evening service, ten young women approach the Holy Altar of the Church. Five of the girls have burning candles or oil lamps in their hands, symbolizing the wise maidens, and the other five have extinguished candles or unlit lamps in their hands, symbolizing the foolish maidens.
