Ukrainian Nationalists Threaten Kievo-Pecherskaya Lavra with New Attacks and Deface Canonical Churches in Odessa

________________________

On Tuesday, extremists from the S14 nationalist group issued threats to the UPTs/MP through the Ukrainian media. Additionally, they planned to heighten their actions against clergymen and parishioners of the Kievo-Pecherskaya Lavra, a major Orthodox Christian monastery. The statement came in the wake of their attempt to block the entrance to the monastery on Monday. The Obozrevatel website quoted S14 coordinator Markiyan Yatsinyak:

Our next actions will be more large-scale and more prolonged, perhaps, in the form of a blockade or some other interesting “creative” steps. We’d primarily direct such a blockade against the Kievo-Pecherskaya Lavra, as this is a landmark, symbolic place, but there’d be other targets as well. As far as the Lavra is concerned, we demand that UPTs/MP clergy no longer have the exclusive right to conduct services in its churches.

On 8 January, about 30 extremists from S14 blocked the entrance to the Kievo-Pecherskaya Lavra, protesting against the Lavra’s refusal to perform a pannikhida for soldiers killed in the aggression in the Donbass if such soldiers weren’t baptised members of the UPTs/MP.

S14 began in 2010. In the winter of 2014, its members were actively involved in the unrest in central Kiev that preceded the coup. In November 2017, the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism at the University of Maryland (USA) added S14 to a global terrorism database.

Radical Ukrainian nationalists held a protest against the churches of the UPTs/MP in Odessa, putting up stickers on their doors claiming that these churches were part of the Russian Orthodox Church, which they called accomplices of Russian special services. The radicals taking part in the protest posted photos regarding their campaign on social media.

It’s unclear whether the American-puppet junta sicced these nutters on the canonical Church or whether it’s simply just a symptom of the general anarchy raging in Banderstan. I’d go for the latter… the Americans are stupid and clueless about the real situation on the ground, but this doesn’t smell like an American provocation. Anglos are usually more violent and feral… as the riots preceding their coup showed. The Ukraine is now in the situation that the Guomindang was in 1948-49 or South Vietnam in 1974-75… everyone knows that the situation is unstable and unsustainable, but no one knows when the collapse will come. When the Russians do come, the people will greet them as liberators… the nationalists will flee to the USA and Canada, and muck things up in our diaspora for the next generation or two.

However, no canonical clergy can say pannikhida for open schismatics or Uniates. They can’t do any sort of service for those outside the canonical Church. I’d say that all good Orthodox Christians should stay away from “Ukrainian Orthodox” or “Ukrainian Catholic” parishes and boycott all affairs held on their premises. These groups support anti-Church elements in the Ukraine and we support that aggression if we attend any of their services or attend events held on their premises. They also support the murder of our Orthodox kids in the Donbass. It’s hard, but it’s true. Then again, do bear in mind that most of the ordinary people have no idea of what their hierarchy and clergy really do (nor do most of them know that their churches have been CIA stooges for decades). Have compassion on them. Let those with ears hear…

By the way, the American-jackal Pashkovsky is the “True ROCOR” “bishop” in Odessa. The CIA stooge Potapov brought him into the real ROCOR… but Pashkovsky knifed the canonical Church at the time of the reconciliation in ’07. He’s a known CIA asset… he could’ve been behind the vandalism in Odessa. He’s that much of a despicable worm.
