26 April 2018. “Ukrainian Orthodox Church in the USA” Issues Delusionary Statement

This action may mean that the USA is losing in the Ukraine and is trying desperately to recover the situation. It seems ill-considered and hasty. Remember… Bart is a lapdog of Langley… look at the above image…

_________________________

Read this. This means that Bart may grant “autocephaly” to the uncanonical UPTs-KP. Bart is a creature of the American special services… the Ecumenical Patriarchate has been such ever since the CIA toppled Patriarch Emmanuel Vaportzis in 1948, as Patriarch Emmanuel was a socialist and an opponent of the American-fomented “Cold War” (the USA replaced him with the reliable lickspittle American Archbishop Athenagoras Spyrou). The Yanks may be planning something… remember, the fascist collaborator Galician Uniates and “Orthodox” have been on the Langley dole since the end of World War II. The fascist spymaster Gehlen brought them into the American service when he flipped sides in 1945… they served the German fascists loyally, they’ve been loyal running dogs for the American capitalists… no difference, really, is there?

This is absolute delusionary rubbish. This isn’t only a danger to the Ukraine and its loyal Orthodox Christians (85 percent of whom remain true to the canonical UPTs-MP), it’s a danger to the unity of the Orthodox Church. Not only is this disastrous in Church terms, it means that in secular terms, the USA is upping the ante in its gambit to take over the Ukraine and use it as a springboard to threaten Russia. I’d point up that this is laying the groundwork for a repeat of 1612 and 1709… both Poland and Sweden wanted to use traitorous elements in Malorossiya to attack Russia. The Hapsburgs wanted to use this scenario against Russia in the 19th and 20th centuries. That died with the end of the Dual Monarchy in 1918… then, as now, the Uniates were the main collaborator with the Westerners (the so-called “Ukrainian Orthodox” are mostly drawn from the same Galician cohort). One of my interlocutors put it this way:

This is beyond bullshit. Tony Scharba and his fake church would be a joke if this didn’t have serious ramifications.

This is beyond delusion… it’s a sign that things aren’t getting any better. It’s why the mood in Moscow is “grim” (how my local contacts put it). The mood isn’t depressed, it isn’t scared, it isn’t bitter… my contacts say “grim”… that is, serious… a sense of foreboding… but not yet a crisis, not yet an actual conflict, yet, the possibility of untoward events is too high for comfort. This has ramifications far beyond its religious setting. It’s a deliberate provocation and an increase in American aggression on Russia. The times are “grim”… my Russian interlocutors are right. I have no idea how this is going to end… no one does. In religious terms, it could end with a schism in the Orthodox Church at large and it could lead to the rupture of the union between the ROCOR and the Mother Church (the appointment of the CIA lickspittle Webster to the J’ville seminary doesn’t give much hope, does it?). In secular terms, it means that the USA may cross the line, which would force Russia’s hand.

As I say, this is a volatile situation. Bart was reckless in doing this. It sets up such an unstable situation, both religious and secular, that no one can really chart a reliable course. May God have mercy on us.

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.

A Devotional Cross Given by the People of St Petersburg to the DNR as a Symbol of their Friendship Dedicated in Gorlovka

________________________

Today, in Gorlovka, a devotional cross donated by the people of St Petersburg to the DNR had its official dedication. The cross is near the entrance to the city, near the *Maiorsk checkpoint. The acting Head of the Gorlovka GGA* Ivan Prikhodko, President of the St. Petersburg NGO “Shumbrat” Sergei Artemov, clergy, public officials, and activists of the public movement “Donetsk Republic” attended the dedication ceremony. In all, about 50 people gathered for the event. Prikhodko said:

We looked forward to this event; we dedicated this cross today. I thank the people of St Petersburg. We want this cross to be a symbol of our faith in victory.

The cross came from the “Northern Capital” a few days ago, then, workmen put it up. The cross is a token of friendship from the people of St Petersburg symbolising the close ties between the DNR and the Russian Federation. Artemov told the media:

Our metropolitan blessed our placing of this cross in your Republic. Then, I wrote a letter to D V Pushilin and received a positive response. We created this cross at our expense; the people of St Petersburg sincerely support your people and wish you peace.

The cross is 6-metres-tall and is made of Siberian larch. It has an overhead covering and the base incorporates debris from houses destroyed in the fascist shelling of Gorlovka. Metropolitan Mitrofan Nikitin of Gorlovka and Slavyansk led the dedication ceremony. He thanked those who brought this gift and noted the significance of what the cross symbolised. The city officials emphasised that the cross would be a symbol of peace in the Donbass, and a memorial of the civilians killed in the fascist aggression.

Editor:

I’d note that the Metropolitan of St Petersburg is Varsonofy Sudakov… perhaps, the person closest to HH himself. That is, if Varsonofy blesses this cross, HH blesses this cross. It means that HH blesses the Peoples Republics in the Donbass and blesses the socialism found there. This means that rightwing filth like Victor Potapov and Ilarion Alfeyev are going against HH in attacking the leftist legacy of the USSR. Do note that Potapov and Alfeyev began their attacks on the person of I V Stalin after Hillary Clinton started her anti-Russia rants. Potapov, formerly a paid CIA propagandist, revealed his true colours. Alfeyev revealed that he’s a running dog of the West, not a loyal son of the Rodina. They proved themselves pro-American traitorous scum. As a friend told me:

We know what these men say and why they say it. It’s the wheat and the tares. The time for reaping will come, though.

If you read attacks on the legacy of the USSR by Potapov and Alfeyev, be aware that HH doesn’t share their venom. After all, didn’t he give condolences to the Castro family? The time of reckoning for these disloyal rightwing fanatics will come…

The Ukraine’s War on Orthodox Christianity

________________________

The Ukrainian Verkhovnaya Rada is considering legislation that could lead to a ban on the Ukrainian Orthodox Church/Moscow Patriarchate (UPTs/MP). If the new laws pass, they’d allow the Ukrainian régime to ban churches, regulate worship, monitor church activities, ban missionaries from entering the country, and seize the assets of churches. The laws would only apply to churches whose ecclesiastical leadership was in what Ukrainian nationalists consider “aggressor states”. Russia is the only state that the Ukraine currently views as an aggressor. Not only is this an attack on the freedom of worship, it’s clearly a racially motivated attack on believers. Advocates of religious freedom all over the world condemned these proposals. The Ukrainian proposals would be totally illegal in the EU (which Ukraine seeks to join) as well as the USA. Previously, Metropolitan Ilarion Alfeyev drew the world’s attention to the oppression of Middle Eastern Christians at the hands of western-backed jihadist groups. He called the Ukrainian proposals:

It’s a full-scale war on believers. In the first place, these draft laws target the UPTs/MP. That’s no question; it’s obvious. These bills don’t even try to cover it up. The UPTs/MP would be under the submission of the Kiev authorities in a way that didn’t exist even in Soviet times.

Fr Andrei Zuevsky told RT:

Should state officials be given the right to forcefully eliminate religious communities, that’d be open and brutal interference into believers’ private lives. In Orthodox Christianity, personal faith is largely realised within a community, a church. When a government interferes in its life, it violates religious freedom.

An MP statement said:

The proposals threaten the constitutional rights of millions of Ukrainian believers; they may cause a wave of violence, new seizures of churches, and escalate the intercommunal conflict in the Ukraine.

Over 300,000 people signed a petition protesting attempts to destroy religious freedom in the Ukraine.
