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.

Poland Recognizes Mass Killings by Ukrainian Nationalists in the VOV as Genocide

00 polish memorial volyn massacre. 280715


Read this. This is something EXTREMELY hateful and displeasing to the Yanks, as it discomfited their Galician Uniate running dogs. It means that the Poles are willing to piss off the USA… they might even be thinking of taking the Lvovshchina, which was under their rule in the days of the Second Polish Republic. Is the Ukraine ripe for dissolution? This would seem to indicate that… for if the American project in the Ukraine were to succeed, the Poles wouldn’t do this. Look for the junta to launch an offensive shortly, and for it to fail miserably. You see, the junta has to do exactly what its Anglo puppeteers tell it to do, and the Anglos don’t give a damn if the Ukraine lives or dies. I’d say that the storm clouds are gathering… that doesn’t bode well for the junta squatting in Kiev…

Ex-Finance Minister sez the Ukraine Already in Default

00 Grivnya down the hatch. 21.02.15


On Saturday, ex-Ukrainian Finance Minister V M Pinzennik admitted that since the Ukrainian government is trying to restructure the state debt, it means that it’s already in default. Pinzennik, now a Rada Peoples Deputy (Vitaly Klitchko’s UDAR bloc), said on Kiev-based TV outlet 112 Ukraina, “Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko botched negotiations with creditors, but even if she hadn’t, this wouldn’t stave off the inevitable. I think that the main problem that the Ukraine now faces is the cause of the current economic crisis. Restructuring the debt won’t solve the main problem, which is the budget deficit. Everyone believes that by restructuring the debt we’d solve all our problems. I don’t think so. The main trouble is that this country spends more than it earns”.

Don’t Mess With Uncle Sam: USA in Total Control of Ukrainian Government

Ukrainian Prime Minister A P Yatsenyuk announced that he’d propose a new list of cabinet ministers in September for the Verkhovnaya Rada to approve. Rada Deputies said that all future personnel decisions must go through the US Embassy in Kiev. RBK Ukraine reported that Rada Peoples Deputy Nikolai Tomenko said, “We notice that the Americans rate our [Ukrainian] ministers. We understand that amongst those who please the US government are Natalie Jaresko (American investment banker and current Finance Minister), Minister of Economic Development Aivaras Abromavicius, Minister for Agriculture and Food Aleksei Pavlenko (who promised to privatise public land), and Minister of Infrastructure Andrei Pivovarsky. American and European businesses have interests, and they don’t hide them”. According to a staffer of a Ukrainian minister, US Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt regularly visits the offices of Kiev politicians. The source told RBK, “Ambassador [Pyatt] took out his notes and told us the things that we had to do in a stern tone, then, my boss briefly told him what we’ve done so far”. American lobbyists also regularly visit the Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers. Martin Nunn, CEO of Whites Communication, constantly hangs around the Rada. Most expect that September will be hot for the Rada. In addition to Yatsenyuk’s expected announcement of a new cabinet ministers list, the Rada will vote on new constitutional amendments, including federalisation of the Ukraine and special autonomous status for the LNR and DNR.
