Today, Svetlana Shkuropat, the sister of Archimandrite Nikon from Donetsk, a priest of the UPTs/MP, told us that he’s in serious condition whilst imprisoned at Mariupol SIZO (Remand Centre) №7, “His condition is very serious, he’s very ill. He’s not taking any food; mainly, he’s only got water, and juice only rarely”. No one knows why this is so. The DNR Minoborony Commission on Prisoners of War confirmed to us that this information about Fr Nikon’s grave condition whilst under SBU repression in Mariupol is correct. We’ve learnt that the Red Cross is going to investigate this situation. This all started when the Ukrops* arrested Frs Nikon and Leonid, together with Nun Varvara, on 12 August at a junta checkpoint near Bugas. They released Fr Leonid and Nun Varvara, but Fr Nikon remained in custody. The junta alleges that Fr Nikon had a document confirming his coöperation with DNR elements.

Our Church leadership here in the USA is SILENT on this. SILENT! Many of them are in bed with the godless Republican opponents of Holy Rus and the Holy Church. Many are in cahoots with the Uniate opponents of Christ’s Church (Paffhausen, Vassa Larina, Potapov, Lyonyo, Dahulich, and Jillions come to mind)… but we’re not supposed to say anything of it and we’re supposed to hold these reprobate traitors in “respect”. I think not… such people trample on the icon of Christ at best; at worst, they spit in the face of the Holy Church (by so doing, they spit in the face of the Lord Christ).
This is evil. I’ll not be silent… neither should you…
