Residents of Russia's fourth-largest city, Yekaterinburg, have rejected plans to build a church in a popular park, ending a week of unrest.
The governor of the surrounding region, Sverdlovsk, said the church would not be built as a result of a survey conducted by an opinion pollster.
The VTsIOM poll found 58% did not want St Catherine's Cathedral in the park.
"This conflict is over, it's been exhausted," the governor, Yevgeny Kuyvashev, wrote in an Instagram post.
Plans to build the church on the park square were met with anger and days of protests by residents.
Opponents said the cathedral would have destroyed one of the few green spaces in the city in the Urals.
The Russian Orthodox Church says it needs new churches to replace the many buildings destroyed under Soviet anti-religion laws.
Last week, around 2,000 people descended on the square to protest against the church's construction, leading to dozens of arrests.
