On May 29, Moscow witnessed its strongest storm since 1998. 15 people were killed and more than 200 injured while many trees were felled by strong winds and a number of buildings were damaged.

One structure that failed to survive the storm was the famous pyramid built by Alexander Golod, which was destroyed in seconds. An online video showing the instant destruction has gone viral. Just before the fierce weather struck, Slavic shamans were holding a spiritual rite on the spot, praising their ancestors. Just moments after they wrapped up their ritual the pyramid was razed to the ground.

"We were [by some forces] told we should visit the place of power that day, the Golod pyramid," shaman Radmir said during an interview to Conceptual TV.

Radmir also said that everyone is free to decide whether it was a message and a sign from above or a coincidence.

UPD on June 2, 11a.m.- the amount of victims is 15, not seven as it was written before.
