SSU serves notice of suspicion to rector of UOC-MP Pochayiv Theological Seminary who engaged in anti-Ukrainian activities
The Archbishop disseminated ‘posts’ through social networks that humiliated the national honor and dignity of Ukrainians. He also contributed to inciting religious hatred and enmity.
To spin destructive content, the rector used an anonymous profile on Facebook and picked up narratives of russian propagandists to prepare his ‘publications’.
In addition, during the searches at the suspect’s home and the seminary, the law enforcement found literature that repeated the kremlin’s ‘points’ on the internal situation in Ukraine.
The Archbishop has been notified of suspicion under Article 161.1 of the CCU (violation of equality of citizens based on their racial, national, regional affiliation, religious beliefs, disability and other grounds).
We emphasize that in its activities the SSU adheres to the principle of impartiality to any religious denomination and respects the right of every citizen to freedom of worldview and religion, as defined by the Constitution of Ukraine.
The offender was exposed by the SSU Ternopil Office jointly with the National Police under the procedural supervision of Kremenets District Prosecutor’s Office.
