Occupiers in Crimea use metal detectors to search believers at Easter festivities

On Easter, the believers who came with their Easter food baskets to St. Volodymyr's Cathedral to the Chersonesos of Tavria Reserve were made to walk through metal detectors. In addition, their personal belongings were searched.

According the Krym.Realii, it was the guards who searched the bags and other belongings of the faithful who came to get their food blessed.

Orthodox believers carried Easter food baskets to St Volodymyr's Cathedral and settled on the square in front of it.

The so-called local law enforcement officers blocked the only narrow road leading to the reserve during the day. In the neighborhood along this road, there was a traffic jam of several dozen cars.

It should be noted that Ukrainians in Russia congratulated the captive sailors on the eve of Easter. Together with the Ukrainian women's community in Moscow, they handed festive food basket boxes to 24 Ukrainian prisoners of war.
