UOC (MP) priest complained to separatists of being forced to live under Ukrainian occupation
The Russian resource News-Front posted a video in which a priest from the UOC (MP), who came from Ukraine-controlled areas of Luhansk region, complains about his life in Ukraine and refers to the Ukrainian military servicemen as "occupiers", according to IV Vlada.
The priest says that he came from the village of Petrivka (located near the town of Shchastia) to visit his daughter and son-in-law, who are fighting on the side of separatists.
“There was fighting and the bridge was blown up. So we were forced to live under occupation. Now, thank God, the border is open. We are making the way to our children and grandchildren. They are on this side. They did not leave. My son-in-law is a Berkut commander, my daughter is a military service woman.”
According to him, he continues to live in the territory controlled by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as he serves in the church there. In this case, the priest believes that Ukrainian soldiers have to leave the territory of Luhansk region.
"I told them: you guys have to go home. They tried to frighten me, made two volleys of automatic gunfire to the air,” the supporter of separatists complains.
