The prosecutor general's office promised to investigate the mysterious death of the Metropolitan of the UOC MP in occupied Luhansk
This conclusion follows from the response of the Prosecutor General's Office to the Information request of Glavkom, according to UAZMI.
"The relevant information published in the mass media will be checked during the pretrial investigation in criminal proceedings on the facts of committing crimes by members of armed formations of the "LPR" not provided for by law, " the Office said in a statement.
The ministry also added that currently neither the Department of supervision of criminal proceedings on crimes committed in the context of armed conflict, nor the Office of the prosecutor general, nor the prosecutor's Office of the Luhansk region provides procedural guidance in criminal proceedings on the death of the Metropolitan of the Luhansk Diocese of the UOC-MP.
As previously reported, Metropolitan Mytrofan, the administrator of the Diocese of Luhansk of the Moscow Patriarchate's Church in Ukraine, died in occupied Luhansk on June 18.
"Glavkom "published the conclusions of the forensic medical examination, which was issued to the deceased in the so-called"LPR". They say that the Metropolitan died as a result of a head injury. After the publication of the document and an interview with Metropolitan Klyment (Vecherya), the cause of death on the diocese's website has been changed. Moreover, in the message of June 19, instead of claiming a "heart attack", it now appears that Metropolitan Mytrofan died "presumably as a result of a heart attack."
Metropolitan Mytrofan was one of those metropolitans of the Church in unity with the Moscow Patriarchate who served in the occupied territory, he was accused of collaborating with militants, and the Ukrainian special services were interested in his activities.
In addition, before handing over the Tomos to the OCU, Metropolitan Mitrofan was a member of the Commission of the Moscow Patriarchate to negotiate "with those who separated from church communion", when the Russian Orthodox church and the UOC-KP tried to establish communication.
