S.B.U. PUBLISHES BOOKLET WITH FACTS OF COOPERATION OF UPTs/RPTs CLERGY WITH SEPARATISTS AND ARMED REBEL GROUPS
Religiia v Ukraine, 11 December 2018
The Security Service of Ukraine (S.B.U.) published a series of informational booklets "devoted to the terrorist activity of special services of the Russian Federation in Ukraine and Russia's use in the hybrid war of religious structures of the Moscow patriarchate," Religiia v Ukraine reports, with reference to Timer-odessa.net.
The booklets were published in the Ukrainian and English languages and they contain special QR codes. The contents include "facts of Russian criminal activity both exposed by the S.B.U. and collected by public activists," the S.B.U. press center reports.
"The deliberate inspiration by Russian special services of inter-confessional conflicts in Ukraine, combined with provocations of direct terrorist activity, may be the reason for an open armed invasion by Russian armed forces into our country," the head of the S.B.U., Vasily Gritsak, noted.
As one can see in the photos of the pages of the booklet, the publication includes the most well known facts of the cooperation of clergy of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and the Russian Orthodox Church with separatists and armed groups of rebels, and also statements of clergy, including Patriarch Kirill, which use fake news or propagandistic methods against Ukraine and various religious groups of the country.
In connection with recent interrogations of clergy of several dioceses of the UPTsMP by S.B.U. personnel, priests that are enthusiasts of this confession announced a flash-mob in support of the UPTsMP and its primate. They have posted on social networks their photo with a sign "Ready for S.B.U. interrogation" and accompanying text. (tr. by PDS, posted 11 December 2018)
