His Imperial Majesty Alexander IV, Defender of the Faith, Turtle, and Elephants, may the Almighty God bless his reign issued a letter of condemnation today to the President of the Republic of Turkey R.T. Erdogan.
His Imperial Majesty cited the reasons for the condemnation it being "[..] against UNESCO norms", and declaring that the motive must be that "[..] Turkey looks back at her Ottoman past, and that you aspire [..] the Ottoman throne". The Sovereign Emperor went on with condemning the "attack [of] the culture and history of the people who lived in her lands before the Seljuks came from the East" and "Turkey [..] becoming an Islamist state".
In the final paragraphs, the Emperor stresses that "Pavlov is the Fourth Rome and the [..] legitimate successor" and as such will protect the treasures of the Eastern Roman Empire against destruction. Pavlov finally requested that the Hagia Sophia and the Trabzon castle be handed over into Pavlovian sovereignty.
