Governor of Kharkiv Promised to Install Memorial Board to Josyf Slipyj
Governor of Kharkiv Mykhailo Dobkin has resolved to install a memorial board in honor of Patriarch Josyf Slipyj of Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church in the yard of the district police department.
"We will install it at the place where the minister stayed and not where it was placed hastily. The building is located in the yard of the district department, at the place of the former prison. We will invite the television and representatives of the church," noted the official.
According to ut.net.ua, the memorial board will only say that Josyf Slipyj was a priest and not a supporter of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army. The sign is to be agreed upon by the Lviv City Council and Kharkiv.
As RISU reported earlier, the Lviv City Council at its own expense will renew the memorial board to Metropolitain Josyf Slipyj on the wall of the former prison in Kharkiv where the patriarch was kept during his transit to Siberia.
