The Shevchenko District Court of Kyiv has ordered the State Bureau of Ukraine (GBR) to resume criminal proceedings over the fact of "inciting interfaith hatred" by the fifth president of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko.

This is reported by Focus citing the message of the former deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Igor Mosiychuk on Facebook.

The Shevchenko District Court of Kyiv ordered the State Bureau of Investigation to resume and fully investigate criminal proceedings on the fact of inciting interfaith hatred by the then president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko during the formation of the OCU and attempts to liquidate the UOC-KP," the report says.

The case against fifth President Petro Poroshenko on granting the Tomos to the Ukrainian Church was opened at the end of 2019 at the request of the faithful of the Kyiv Patriarchate, who support Patriarch Filaret. The statement noted the illegal actions of a number of senior officials who committed actions aimed at inciting inter-religious hatred during the creation of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine.

The OCU then called the case opened against Poroshenko "a shameful and absurd attempt at pressure."

"We are talking about criminal proceedings that were initiated by the state Bureau of Investigation at the request of His Holiness Patriarch Filaret of Kyiv and all Russia-Ukraine, but later closed under pressure from people's deputies from the EU. As you can see, it is illegal... Petro Oleksiyovych, get ready for questioning!", - wrote the former MP.

Earlier, Petro Poroshenko said that receiving the Tomos of autocephaly was the main event of his life.
