In case of open war with Russia, Moscow Patriarchate is likely to support the aggressor, - Archbishop of the OCU
This opinion was expressed by the speaker of the OCU, Archbishop Yevstratiy Zorya, when discussing the ban from service in the army to chaplains of the UOC-MP, Religiyna Pravda reports.
“I have a simple example to substantiate this point. How many chaplains of the Moscow Patriarchate in Ukraine opposed the Russian occupation in Crimea and spiritually supported Ukrainian units during the Russian invasion? Never heard about any of them. How many of the same supported Russian aggression? There are numerous cases, followed by granting the medals and diplomas “For Assistance”.
Thus, the Moscow Patriarchate in Ukraine in Crimea has shown by a living example that its chaplains in the event of an open Russian war are very likely not to support the Ukrainian military in the fight against the aggressor and are very likely to contribute to it.
And if everything written above is fiction, then I would like to see the facts, and not just another “we love peace” rhetoric," the OCU speaker said.
