Мошкола.jpgThe Ministry of Culture does not intend to warn any churches other than the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church (UGCC) of illegal religious activity, director of the Ministry of Culture’s Department of Religious Affairs Mykhailo Moshkola said at a meeting of the Verkhovna Rada, RBC-Ukraine reports.

Moshkola reiterated that the UGCC had no right to hold prayer services on the Maidan in Kyiv, because it does not have permission from the Kyiv City State Administration (KSCA).

As for the other churches, according to Moshkola, today there is no reason to send them “similar letters.”

In turn, the head of the UGCC Sviatoslav Shevchuk said that it was the first time during Ukraine’s independence that there was an official threat to terminate the activity of the religious organizations of the UGCC, and assured that the church is not a part of the political processes.

      Наші патріоти не гребують нічим, щоб очернити Православну Церкву. Ця брехня - лише краплина в потоці бруду.

      Брехня, вже спростували: http://www.rosbalt.ru/piter/2015/01/20/1359094.html Панотець грав у страйкбол у Петербурзi, зброя не бойова, страйкбольна, у Луганську навiть не був. Не соромно

      Я в и-нете сталкивался с советскими православными, как ни странно,- не советского происхождения,- местными в N-ом поколении. Похоже они ещё совковее постсоветских совков. Очень грустное зрелище.
