Ukrainian Minister of Culture personally ensured that Pinzel reliefs "Annunciation" and "Guardian Angel", which are stored in the church of the Holy Intercession in Buchach, will be transferred to the exhibition in France inpresence of Louvre Museum representatives, and after the show come back to church.
It should be noted that the religious community of Buchach for decades trying to defend the right to ensure that the sacred works of Pinzel were stored in the church of the Holy Intercession, for which both were made. However Buchach sculptures and reliefs of the great master of the "wander" around the world since the Soviet times, when the Church of the Intercession were closed, the iconostasis was dismantled and taken to a museums in Lviv and Ternopil. The fate of some of the exhibits, including the King's Gate Church of the Holy Veil, is still unknown.
