Metropolitan Epifaniy: "Chornobyl did not discourage Russian troops from playing with the nuclear" - фото 1
The head of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine, Metropolitan Epifaniy, drew attention to the nuclear danger posed by Russia and its occupation forces today, 36 years after the Chornobyl tragedy.

The head of the OCU noted it in his Facebook post.

"The Russian evil empire is now blackmailing the whole world with the threat of using nuclear weapons, the mass extermination of people, which it plans to start with Ukraine. Already on the first day of a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the enemy captured the Chornobyl nuclear power plant. Ignoring history, safety rules, and carrying out criminal orders, the Russian military dug trenches in the Red Forest, and brought heavy military equipment to the territory of Chornobyl, raising clouds of toxic dust into the air. It had some effect on them soon, but did it discourage them from further "playing with the nuclear"? Unfortunately, it did not. After all, we continue to hear reports that Russian missiles are flying in critical proximity to nuclear facilities, near other Ukrainian nuclear power plants, risking another catastrophe...

Let us also remember other lessons of the Chornobyl tragedy: the consequences of the crimes of the communist regime and the Moscow leadership, negligence and irresponsibility, the consequences of lying and keeping silent about the truth, which led to even more victims 36 years ago.

Deliver us, O Lord, from irreparable harm, from Russia's evil and painful plans, and from possible catastrophic consequences for all mankind."
