Uniate Chieftain Shevchuk Sez “UPTs/MP is the Only Canonical Orthodox Church in the Ukraine”

01 This Ship is Sinking

Is Shevchuk bolting the junta? Is he making his peace with a future pro-Russian reality? It’s a possibility… but we’d have to see developments to be sure, no? The Uniates DO speak with forked tongue…

_______________________________

S Yu Shevchuk, the head of the UGKTs, said on-air on American radio station SiriusXM, speaking with Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York, the head of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, “Today, there’s no mystery that the only canonical Orthodox Church in the Ukraine, the only one in full communion with world Orthodoxy, is the UPTs/MP. Other Orthodox groups separated from the UPTs/MP after Ukrainian independence at different times for various reasons, but the other Orthodox Churches consider them uncanonical. For us as Eastern Catholics, these divisions in Ukrainian Orthodoxy are painful, but we respect the canons and internal order of the Orthodox side. On our part, we never attempted to interfere in the internal life of the Orthodox Church; we never took part in the debates about its canonical legitimacy, nor did we incite any group to initiate a schism. You can’t solve existing problems with new schisms, divisions, or amalgamations”. He hoped that these schisms would end in the near future, noting, “We interact with the ‘Kiev Patriarchate’ as a part of the ‘All-Ukrainian Council of Churches and Religious Organisations’. Therefore, I’d say that these relations are more in the realm of public relations, not inter-church contacts. I have deep respect for the Russian people and the MP. In fact, over half the Maidan participants were Russian-speakers and members of the UPTs/MP”.

Earlier, the MP repeatedly criticised the UGKTs for its involvement in politics and for its support of Ukrainian schismatical groups. In particular, recently, Metropolitan Ilarion Alfeyev of Volokolamsk, head of the MP Synodal Department for External Church Relations (OVTsS), spoke at the Vatican during the General Assembly of the Synod of Catholic Bishops. He appealed to the UGKTs delegation, “You should renounce all political statements and end all visible forms of support of the schism, as well as to put a stop to calls to create ‘a single Local Ukrainian Church’. From the beginning, unfortunately, the conflict in the Ukraine, which has already taken thousands of lives, had a religious dimension. In this, the UGKTs played a significant role in its origin and development. From the very first days of the conflict, the Greek Catholics unequivocally stood for only one side of the conflict. Contrary to the respect for canonical norms prevailing in relations between Catholics and the Orthodox Church, the Greek Catholics entered into active collaboration with Orthodox schismatics”.

This is fascinating. If Shevchuk is on the up-and-square (a rather iffy proposition, I’d say, but let’s take it as is, for now), it means that the UGKTs is backing away from its support of Orthodox schismatical groups. Indeed, it appears that Shevchuk is saying that the UGKTs recognises only the UPTs/MP… that it wants NOTHING to do with Ukrainian nationalist schismatical groups. Is this a sign that the Uniate junta is sinking and that Shevchuk wants to conform himself to a new reality? Of course, it could just be bullshit to blow smoke into our eyes. The Uniates have lied all too often in the past… the Uniates DID bless the SS collaborators and the UPA terrorists, after all. We’ll have to see what happens.

Interesting… IF true…

28 October 2014. THIS is the “Weak Russia” that the Anglo Americans and their Uniate “Amen Corner” Rant About… I Think NOT!

00 Park Pobedy. Poklonnaya Gora. Moscow. 28.10.14

______________________________

This is Park Pobedy (Victory Park) on Poklonnaya Gora (Reverence Hill) commemorating the Great Victory over Fascist Germany in the VOV. It sure doesn’t look cheap or second-rate to me! I guess that the Anglo Americans (and their Uniate and lickspittle Russian Orthodox amen corners) aren’t looking at the same country that I am! By the way, they set up the Ramadan Tent at the Park every year… HH and V A Chaplin (amongst a host of others) were honoured guests there of the Russian Muslim people. Our leaders do NOT espouse hate of Islam and Muslims the way the neocons do. NO SIR! We even stand behind the Iranians (Mom! Get the smelling salts… Whiteford and Dreher just fainted).

As you can see from this image, Russia isn’t a minor country. Why would you trust the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Jen Psaki, Bill O’Reilly, and Marie Harf anyway? What DO they know about the Rodina? Less than you do, dear reader! Keep it focused and keep it strong. We spring from a mighty and ancient civilisation… one that had been Christian for 788 years BEFORE the American Declaration of Independence. Fancy that…

America is “a City on a Hill?”. I think NOT…

26 October 2014. Vox Pop on Podkarpatskaya

00 carpatho-russian. 06.08.14

______________________________

Carpatho-Russians are a unique and distinct people… very different from all other Russians, yet, carrying the essence of Holy Rus perhaps better, and more authentically than all the others do. Our language is the closest to Church Slavonic. Our cuisine is in many ways more in line with New Rome (Byzantine Empire) (spices, flavours, etc). Our dance is Balkan. Our Faith is a distinct but solidly established strain of Russian Orthodoxy. No one else can absorb us. It’s impossible. We are what we are. “Da živet Karpatskaja-Rus!”/”Carpatho-Russia LIVES!” THIS is what we say. A Carpatho-Russian knows another Carpatho-Russian a mile away. If we’re too small to be a nation, we’re something better… a tribe… or better yet, a family. We’ll endure, survive, and thrive. We WILL accuse our many cruel persecutors on the Last Day.

******

I have nothing to add, not being “of the tribe”. THIS is why I treasure the Rusin people so and stick up for them at every juncture. “Rusins lived… Rusins live… Rusins will live”… ‘nuff said…

21 October 2014. Why Hungary? RT Video on Rusin Identity

00.01 Carpatho-Russia coat of arms

******

______________________________

Why Hungary? For one, Magyar is sufficiently different from Rusin to ensure survival of the language. Secondly, the Rusins were under the Kingdom of Hungary prior to 1914. Thirdly, and most importantly, the Magyars aren’t bent on destroying the Rusin people as the Galician Uniate fascists are. Galician Uniate “Consciousness” is a racist ideology very similar to Nazism. “The Ukraine for Ukrainians only!” “Knife the Moskals!” That’s why many Rusins are looking towards Hungary. That’s what I see, any road…
