Kiev Dissatisfied with Interpol’s Refusal to Issue Arrest Warrant for Yanukovich

________________________

Ukrainian Genprokuratura source Larisa Sargan told the Ukrainian News Agency:

After we found former Ukrainian President V F Yanukovich guilty of high treason, we requested that Interpol issue a Red Notice Arrest Warrant for him, but they denied the request. They considered it political persecution.

Earlier on Wednesday, Yanukovich said at a press conference in Moscow:

My movement isn’t restricted. I can freely travel across Russia; I’m not on the Interpol wanted list. I can travel to any country.

In late January, a Kiev court sentenced Yanukovich to 13 years in absentia for high treason.

Editor:

This is important. It means that Interpol doesn’t buy the American narrative on the Ukraine. In short, Interpol believes that the present junta is only a temporary contrivance of the Americans and that it doesn’t have long for this world. Do note the silence of CNN, the NY Times, and the WaPo!

A Plea for Peace at the Kievo-Pecherskaya Lavra

00 Yanukovich at the Kievo Pechersky Lavra. 23.01.14

______________________________

On 22 January, with the blessing of Metropolitan Vladimir Sabodan of Kiev and all the Ukraine, there was a molieben at the Assumption Cathedral of the Kievo-Pecherskaya Lavra for the Ukrainian Day of National Unity. At the head of the clergy were Metropolitan Pavel Lebed of Vyshgorod and Chernobyl (Metropolitan Vicar), the Superior of the Lavra, and Metropolitan Antony Pakanich of Borispol and Brovary, the Chancellor of the UOC/MP. Concelebrating were Bishop Ilarion Shishkovsky of Makarov (Vicar of the Diocese of Kiev), Bishop Iosif Maslennikov of Romny and Buryn, Bishop Feodosy Snigiryov of Boyarka (Vicar of the Diocese of Kiev), Bishop Varsonofy Stolyar of Borodyanka (Vicar of the Diocese of Kiev), Bishop Damian Davydov of Fastov (Vicar of the Diocese of Kiev), and Bishop Nikolai Pochtovy of Vasilkov (Vicar of the Diocese of Kiev), along with many other clergy; besides this, many believers attended, including, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich, Secretary of the National Security and Defence of the Ukraine Andrei Klyuyev, General Procurator of the Ukraine Viktor Pshonka, and Anatoly Prisyazhnyuk (former SBU general), the head of the Kiev Regional State Administration.

Before starting the service, referring to present events in Kiev, Metropolitan Antony urged believers to raise fervent prayer to God to end the violence and bring reconciliation of the warring parties. During the past day, there have been violent confrontations between police and rioters. A representative of the website Orthodoxy in the Ukraine asked Metropolitan Antony to give some comments on the continuing crisis. Vladyki Antony said, “Today, we celebrate the Ukrainian Day of National Unity with a sense of sadness and grief. The country is on the brink of the abyss. This morning, all of us heard the shocking news about the latest clashes in the centre of Kiev and the death of one of the rioters. Again, and yet again, the Church demands a stop to the violence. People! Come to your senses! Opposition leaders should make every effort to stop the rioters attacking the police. Straight away, the authorities and opposition should sit down at the negotiating table. The Ukrainian Orthodox Church reaffirms its readiness to mediate in such negotiations. This day is a symbol of the Ukrainian land’s unity and of the Ukrainian people’s unity. However, today, we show the world not collegiality, but confrontation and conflict. We can’t have a strong state if there’s no unity amongst the people, in which there’s no dialogue between the government, opposition, and civil society. We offer prayers for our country and for our people. May the Lord give us the wisdom not to destroy our own country, not to drown in the depths of Civil War”.

Editor’s Note:

Do note that the pro-Western suck-up Klichko didn’t show up. The only reason that Viktor Fyodorovich hasn’t crushed the criminal rioters without mercy as they deserve is that he’s a loyal spiritual son of the late Elder Zosima Sokur. He’s shown forbearance and patience with these unruly and violent elements. I think that if the rioters refuse to stop their thuggery, it’s time to take off the gloves. The Church should bless the security forces, then, they should move in to snuff out the rebels. Perhaps, that’d lead to Galicia seceding from the rest of the Ukraine… let them go… they’d find out that “independence” isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be. It’d lead to consolidation of the Orthodox Ukrainian lands… let the Uniates go… let Zakarpattya be free of Galicia (they don’t deserve oppression from the Galician nutters)… then, there’d be peace. God willing, there’d be no need of a “population exchange”… but if the Uniates refuse to live in peace with us, that might be the only course.

Why must we live in such times?

By the way, the hierarchs were mostly men below 50… only two were above 50, and none were above 60. To put it bluntly, the legit Church isn’t a Church of the elderly; it isn’t a place of senescence. Don’t listen to Uniate and American propaganda. Stand with the REAL Church… that’s our DUTY as Orthodox Christians.
