MP Priests “Threaten” to Seize Property of the so-called “Kiev Patriarchate” in the Crimea… Boo Hoo!

Patriarch Kirill Ukraine 2010 10

Here’s the REAL DEAL on the Ukraine… mistrust all substitutes…



WARNING! The following smells like a provocation (and smells as if a Westerner wrote it). The so-called “Kiev Patriarchate” is an anti-canonical schismatical body deemed illegitimate and false by all of world Orthodoxy. Ergo, it’d have no rights in the RF, and the MP would have full legal and moral rights to seize all of its property and expel its “clergy” with the aid of the authorities. The “Kiev Patriarchate” is nothing more than the religious arm of Ukrainian fascist nationalists (and their “leader” is under a personal anathema). They deserve no quarter.



“Archbishop” (sic) Kliment of the “Kiev Patriarchate” claimed on Ukrainian Channel 5 that priests from the UOC/MP accompanied by armed men threatened to seize property of the “Kiev Patriarchate”. He alleged that, in one recent case, a UOC/MP priest from Sevastopol arrived at the village of Perevalnoye with an entourage of armed men and demanded to see documentation of property belonging to the Kiev Patriarchate there. Kliment claimed that the men “started to take inventory of our property and warned that as soon as Ukrainian servicemen leave Perevalnoye, the chapel at the military base would belong to the Moscow Patriarchate”. The Ukraine has two separate Ukrainian Orthodox churches… the UOC/MP, which is under the Patriarchate of Moscow and all the Russias, and that of the so-called “Kiev Patriarchate”, established in 1992 following a schism with the MP. There is also the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church, which no canonical Orthodox Church recognises.

Note the false tone of equivalence in this article. Kliment isn’t a bishop… he’s a schismatical poseur. As I said, it smells as if a Western ignoramus wrote this…
