Separatist Bishop of the UOC-MP consecrated a missile ship of the Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol
At the same time, he called the Russian Federation "a God-protected fatherland" and "our holy homeland," EspressoTV reports.
Volodymyr Bryukhovetsky, a veteran of the war in the Donbas from the SICH volunteer battalion, former chairman of the Talalaevsky district state administration of the Chernihiv region, drew attention to this event.
"Chernyshev was ordained bishop a year ago in the city of Nizhyn. And one of the organizers of that action was the deputy of the Chernihiv Regional Council Valery Kolosha (elected on the lists of the "Nash Krai" (Our Territory) Party, previously belonged to the Agrarian Party of Ukraine - Ed.). Terrorist Chernyshev and other hierarchs of the Moscow Patriarchate were welcomed by Kolosha in the courtyard of St. Nicholas Church in Nizhyn with a huge loaf, which he baked for distinguished guests at his own enterprise," Bryukhovetsky wrote today, February 28, 2021, on Facebook.
As RISU has previously reported, on Sunday, December 8, 2019, a separatist priest from Crimea, Kalinik (Chernyshev), was secretly ordained a bishop in Nizhyn.
He was born in 1977 in Yevpatoria. He has obtained a law and economics higher education, a master's degree in theology.
According to the Myrotvorets website, Archimandrite Kalinik (Chernyshov) took an active part in the annexation of Crimea: he conducted anti-Ukrainian agitation, placed a warehouse of weapons for the "self-defense of Crimea" on the territory of the Church of the Holy Prophet John the Baptist in the village of Uyutnoye, of which he is the rector. He received the medal "For Defense of Crimea" from the Russian authorities of Crimea.
A clergyman of the UOC-MP was awarded a Certificate of Honor by the leadership of the "people's militia" in Yevpatoria, on Teatralnaya Square. Awards on the same day were also given to 144 "Defenders of Homeland" — the so-called soldiers of the local militia detachment and civilians who "actively helped the neo-Nazi resistance forces."
