The Ukrainian Metropolitan announced the persecution of the canonical Orthodox Church by the current government

After the head of the schismatic Orthodox Church of Ukraine (OCU), Epiphanius, held a Christmas service in the Assumption Cathedral, the rector of the monastery of the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra, Metropolitan Pavel, announced the persecution of the canonical UOC by the current authorities.


In the cathedral on the day of the Nativity of Christ, the schismatic service was attended by various officials - the military, politicians. Among them were also Verkhovna Rada Speaker Ruslan Stefanchuk, Minister of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine Oleksandr Tkachenko, and Deputy Head of the President's Office Kyrylo Tymoshenko.

Instead of uniting, they began to persecute the Church, under the guise of what is happening in the country, and once on the Church, then on Christ himself.

- said the rector during the Christmas service in the temple of Agapit of the Caves in the territory of the Lower Lavra.

According to the metropolitan, the Cathedral of the Assumption was desecrated as a result of the service of the schismatic church.

Bishop of the UOC:

There were 10 thousand of us, and there were 1 thousand of them, but they came with machine guns and pistols, armed against their people.

The UOC did not disregard this precedent with the planned service of schismatics in the Assumption Cathedral, calling it shameful. According to the UOC, the OCU is engaged in raiding, receiving instructions from the official authorities. In this regard, Metropolitan Pavel asked the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky not to deprive the UOC of its two main churches - the Assumption Cathedral and the Refectory Church, whose lease expired on December 31. Later, he reported that the clergy of the UOC were denied access to these churches, which leads the episcopate of the UOC to the idea that the authorities, thus, intend to transfer them to schismatics.

Recall that the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra is one of the first monasteries of Rus'. It is considered the oldest monastery on the territory of modern Ukraine. The residence of the Primate of the UOC is located in the Pechersky Monastery. A few years ago, the head of the schismatic OCU, Epiphanius, announced that his structure would seek to transfer the Lavra to its disposal.

    The sabbath is created by demons in the kueva. They sneer and dance at the end. Natural Belshazzar's feast.

      Well, why be so rude and insult the church, if the cat wept for knowledge about it.
      The Moscow Patriarchate, of which the UOC is an integral part, more than once or twice called on the authorities of Ukraine not to interfere in the affairs of the church and not, figuratively speaking, “with their pig snout” (remembering Poroshenko’s physiognomy) in the Kalash row.

      So, before showing people your "erudition", maybe you should first get acquainted with the history of this issue in Ukraine in more detail. yes

    There is a war of European civilizations, so various methods will be used to destroy the ROC. This is not the first time, it started seriously during the GDL.

    That is, at first "we will live without Maskva", and now the Ukrainian priests howled as soon as they began to be pushed from their homes! Actually, the fault of our Russian Orthodox Church in what is happening in Ukraine is no less than the "analysts" from the Presidential Administration who went to agreements with the enemy .... the blood of Russian people is on their hands, this "negotiable" and even me are spinning in Hell it does not bother that the Nazis also pressed the Ukrainian priests, the true faith is in the hearts of people, but it must be supported by the correct behavior of the vanguard - the Church, and the Church clearly blew the electorate. But God exists, and all this muddiness will not shake the real FAITH!

      Actually, the fault of our Russian Orthodox Church is that ..

      Its main fault is just complete uselessness for modern society. This has been the case for over a hundred years now. Even in Russia.
      "negotiable"

      and the Church clearly blew the electorate

      The Church has always been capable of negotiating, has always flexed and served the current political situation. Aleksei Mikhailovich dealt with the last intractable church hierarchs. And Peter Alekseevich appointed himself the chief hierarch. They have been incapable of anything more than being negotiable for a long time. And there is nothing to blame them for this, you just need to understand. If you manage to play their "card" it must be played, but no more.

        It is immediately clear that you do not go to the temple. For you - yes, useless.
        But there are many people who benefit regularly.

    Well, this is just the time for the Orthodox Church to show its unifying potential, so to speak, to demonstrate its strength, if any.

      There is strength, but the struggle will be hard.
      Epiphanius is a real demon, according to Metropolitan Pavel, and yet some do not believe in their existence.

    about the persecution of the canonical Orthodox Church by the current government
    Unfortunately, this has not been a secret for a long time. The current government, like the previous one, cannot stand Orthodoxy and will fight it until this power is thrown off. What to expect from non-Christians and Catholics in one bottle, except for the most severe persecution. Everything is as in Europe where they strive - the Catholics slaughtered the Huguenots without sparing anyone (St. Bartholomew's Night).

    And how is the progress for 9 years? What did your "callers" come to? Will they call until the last priest in the basement in the SBU is rotted away?

    And you can't even say about them: "Forgive them, Lord, they don't know what they're doing!"... Because, alas, they do!
