Pope Francisco Spoke Against Encroachments on Integrity of Russian Church

________________________

On Thursday, Pope Francisco Bergoglio said at a meeting with a group of Russian clergy that the Roman Catholic Church is in favour of the unity of the Russian Orthodox Church in the wake of Ukrainian President P A Poroshenko’s plan to institute an independent local [national] Ukrainian Orthodox Church. Metropolitan Ilarion Alfeyev, the chief of the MP OVTsS, led the group visiting the Vatican. The Pope of Rome said:

I want to confirm most of all in front of you, dear brother, and before you, that the Catholic Church will never allow an attitude of division to be born on its own. We’ll never allow it; we don’t want it. In Russia, there is only one Patriarch, yours. We won’t have another. Unification as a method isn’t acceptable in relations between the Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholic Christians at the current stage and only a sisterly dialogue between these two denominations of Christianity is possible. The Catholic Church, the Catholic Churches, shouldn’t interfere in the internal affairs of the Russian Orthodox Church, not even in political matters. This is my position and the position of the Holy See today. Those who meddle don’t obey the Holy See.

At the end of April, the Verkhovnaya Rada supported President Poroshenko’s appeal to Patriarch Bartholomew Archontonis of Constantinople, who has the titular status of “first amongst equals” in Eastern Orthodox Christianity. He asked Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew to grant autocephaly to a “united” Orthodox Church in the Ukraine. The global Orthodox Christian community recognises only one canonical Orthodox community in the Ukraine… the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of to Moscow Patriarchate. Operating simultaneously are another two bodies, unrecognised by global Orthodoxy… the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of to the so-called Kiev Patriarchate and the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church.

In the meantime, experts and analysts say that Poroshenko’s aspirations received substantial backing from the so-called Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church (Eastern Catholic Church of the Byzantine Rite), which is under the Vatican. Earlier this month, Metropolitan Ilarion told NTV that Archbishop (sic) Svyatoslav Shevchuk, the leader of the Ukrainian Uniates “repeatedly stated his support of the project for a unified Local Ukrainian Orthodox Church, while saying that the unity of this Church should be built on the successor of St Peter, that is, the Pope of Rome”.

Francisco is telling the Uniates to cool it. However, they’re refusing to obey him. They’ve taken the CIA’s shilling for years; they more listen to Washington than to Rome. The Uniates don’t care what Francisco wants… their leadership are fanatics, as is the leadership of the so-called “Ukrainian Orthodox”. Ukrainian nationalists are evil… they push an agenda mired in falsehood and lies. The Habsburgs sicced these nutters on the world… the Austro-Hungarians have the blame for starting this kerfuffle (they wanted to weaken Russia… it led to their death camp at Thalerhof). Don’t forget, the Uniates blessed the SS, as did the so-called “Ukrainian Orthodox”. They’re unrepentant of that… hell, they’re proud of it! Ponder that… ponder it well…

They’re Forever Children… Bright Memory to the Angels of the Donbass…

________________________

If a political régime, whatever it is, kills one single child… moreover, in a territory whose only “guilt” is that it has a different view on its own way of life concordant with its cultural identity… all the rest of the world, were it really civilised, should condemn such a régime to Hell. I repeat… ONE SINGLE CHILD!

They’re forever children… bright memory to the angels of the Donbass…

To all too many Anglos, these kids are just “collateral damage”, “incidental casualties of war”. These kids did nothing to the USA… neither did their parents. However, the USA decided to underwrite yet another coup in another “backward” country that needed “democracy” and “enlightenment”. They didn’t care who they killed… their ages didn’t matter… their gender didn’t matter… if they were innocent and the Yank’s proxies killed them, too bad. The USA has been an amoral and grasping society from its very foundation. If you doubt me, I’d say to you:

Look at the American treatment of the aboriginal inhabitants of this land. Look at the Trail of Tears, Wounded Knee, and the stealing of Indian Territory to make “Oklahoma”. Look at slavery… at Dred Scott… at the plantation society of the American South… at the fact that the Confederacy chose national suicide rather than free its slaves (that’s what the Brits asked of Mason and Slidell… free the slaves and the Royal Navy would break the blockade). Look at how the Anglos treated Mexico… the Slaver Revolt in Texas in 1836… the stealing of Northwestern Mexico in 1848 (a land-grab that Mexico has never really accepted). Look at the Anglo Way of War… they prefer striking at innocents… but it’s OK! “We do it from aeroplanes and we don’t know whom we kill, so it’s all right in the end. No, we don’t shoot people like them evil Roosians and bestial Chinks and brutal Serbs and nasty Syrians… we’re better than that”.

The USA is embarked on an evil course. Trump is part of it… the Clintons are part of it… Ted Cruz is part of it… Nancy Pelosi is part of it. The Anglo Establishment is corrupt from top to bottom and has been from the outset of their rebellion against Britain. God do spare us… there’s a cold spot in Hell for those who murder children, and the Anglos have been doing it from the very beginning. The Wheels of God’s Justice do grind slowly, but they do grind very fine, indeed…

Ukrainian Jewish Committee Warns Kiev About Glorifying World War II Murderers of Jews

________________________

On Friday, Eduard Dolinsky, Director of the Ukrainian Jewish Committee, told golos.ua:

The veneration of World War II-era Nazi groups and surging anti-Semitism in the Ukraine will inevitably affect relations with Israel. Currently, both countries enjoy a good relationship. However, the Ukraine’s glorification of the murderers of the Jewish population will eventually come back to haunt Kiev in its relations with Israel. This’ll happen shortly. This’ll depend on how the Ukraine acts. For example, Poland, as you know, banned entry for (the director of the Institute of National Memory) Vyatrovich as well as some of his allies and nationalists. Israel may also take similar measures. Besides, ultra-right sentiment and extremist groups will grow in the Ukraine if the government remains idle. The whole world is witnessing mounting rightwing extremist sentiment and stepped-up activity by radical groups in social life. If they take no action to counter this, this’ll build up day by day. In addition, their numbers would increase, eventually making the fight against them more difficult.

According to the Israeli Ministry of Diaspora Affairs, the number of anti-Semitic incidents doubled in the Ukraine in 2017 year-on-year, which comes against the backdrop of a glorification of nationalist leaders responsible for the murders and expulsion of Jews during World War II. It noted:

For a second successive year, the Ukraine saw the biggest number of anti-Semitic incidents among the former Soviet Union republics. There was anti-Semitic propaganda in politics, vandalism targeting Jewish cemeteries, buildings, and social centres, as well as monuments to Holocaust victims. However, they don’t take any effective action against vandals, with anti-Semitic incidents qualified as just hooliganism and not as hate crimes.

In May 2015, Ukrainian President P A Poroshenko signed a law glorifying the OUN (Ukrainian nationalists) and the UPA (Ukrainian Insurgent Army), a terrorist group outlawed in Russia, labelling their activity as a struggle for the country’s independence. Statues to nationalist Nazi collaborators S A Bandera and R I Shukhevich arise across the Ukraine, memorial events and torchlight processions occur in their memory, and they name streets after them.

Russian Brass Sez the Ukraine Received No New Buk Missiles Since 1991

________________________

Editor:

Note well that Russia, a legitimate state actor, wasn’t part of this “investigation”. On the other hand, the illegitimate and illegal American-installed Ukrainian junta was part of it. That means that the “findings” were American-manufactured rubbish. After all, the Yanks do like sabotaging airliners, don’t they?

On Friday, the Minoborony Rossii said in an official statement:

Since the moment the USSR ceased to exist in 1991 and the split of the military equipment that followed, the Ukraine, which then obtained about 20 Buk SAM battalions, hasn’t received a single new air defence missile.

On 24 May, the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) formed by Australia, Belgium, Malaysia, the Netherlands, and the Ukraine published an interim report of its probe into the MH17 disaster over Ukraine in 2014. The investigators claimed that the launcher that fired the missile might have been from Russia’s 53 Air Defence Brigade stationed near Kursk. The Minoborony Rossii dismissed all JIT charges to this effect, saying that not a single air defence system of the Russian forces ever crossed the Russian-Ukrainian border. It also stated that it provided exhaustive evidence to the Dutch authorities concerned to prove unequivocally that Ukrainian Buk crews were responsible for shooting down the passenger plane.
