Vuonna 1913 Haminan rauhan 100-vuotisjuhlan kunniaksi Uspenskin katedraalin tontille Katajanokalla rakennettiin ortodoksinen kappeli. Tätä Rauhan kappelia pidettiin kuitenkin Venäjän sortopolitiikan symbolina, joten Suomen itsenäistymisen jälkeen kiihkokansalliset ylioppilaat sotkivat sen tervalla. Tervaa ei saatu puhdistettua kappelin vuolukivisistä seinistä, joten rakennus päätettiin purkaa vuonna 1920.

In 1913 an Orthodox chapel was built on the site of the Uspenski Cathedral in Katajanokka to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Treaty of Hamina. Yet the chapel was viewed as a symbol of Russia’s oppressive politics, which led to a group of patriotic students to smudge it with tar after Finland became independent. After unsuccessful attempts to remove the tar, the building was demolished in 1920.
