The UOC-KP Patriarchate Archbishop of Simferopol and the Crimea Clement visited in the court room the activist Volodymyr Baluch, arrested in Crimea by Russian regimes that annexed the peninsula.


Crimean Tatar activist Zair Smedlyaev published the photo on the Facebook.


The photo started a lively discussion.


"And why the Crimean imams are not capable of such an act? Come to court and stand next to an arrested Muslim, read the prayer with him… is there no more imams in the Crimea?" - asked the mufti of the Spiritual Directorate of Muslims of Ukraine Said Ismagilov.


Author of the photo Smedliaev explained that imams come too,  but the Mufti of Crimea never. The activist reminded that archbishop Clement also attended at the psychiatric hospital another political prisoner - deputy chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Ilmi Umerov.


Also, the head of the Information Office of the Kyivan Patriarchate, Archbishop Yevstratiy (Zorya), reacted to the photo.


"Ukrainian Archbishop Clement and prisoner in the Crimea, Ukrainian Volodymyr Baluch. This photo brings tears to my eyes", - he wrote in his Facebook page.
