"There are different opinions in Odessa. In Crimea the situation is rather calm. Russian occupants do not touch the Catholics, while they think what to do with them," he said.

Earlier media repeatedly reported harassment of the occupation regime of different religious communities of the peninsula, including Muslims, Roman and Greek Catholics, Jews, Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchate and others.

      Я прочитав передмову до книжки "Два царства" від біскупа Бучека. Або він повний неук з історії, або він наглий провокатор і маніпулятор. Назвати Шептицького заполітизованим, на противагу
