“The Maidan showed how various denominations can coexist peacefully. The whole world knows about our tolerance in these matters. Today the seizure of places of worship in Crimea is being triggered by Russia,” Yevhen Nyshchuk said at a briefing in the Ukraine Crisis Media Center, the official website of the Ministry of Culture reports.

The minister also appealed to the National Security Council with a request to protect the country's information space and to prevent the publication in international media of false information about alleged ethnic or religious hatred in Ukraine.

“The ideology of the Ukrainian people, their whole history, and events on the Maidan have shown that the individual is highly valued in Ukraine! Whereas, for our northern neighbor, the imperial spirit is most valued and individuals are neutralized. This is the difference between Ukraine and Russia. And so accordingly we have affirmed our membership in the civilized world where respect for the individual is most valued. The mission of culture and arts is to call for love and peace. We promote non-violent resistance to evil. And support around the world is very important to us,” said Yevhen Nyshchuk.

      Father Sviatoslav, There will be a long and fancy procession to hell for patriarchs who do not follow scripture. Pray. More than you know, peace in in your hands.

      А де брехня? Якщо сам священик у себе на сторінці подав, що це Луганськ і точна адреса вулиці. А можливо це автоматично вискочило під фото, де воно зроблене? Напевно він забавився у войнушкі (зовсім

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