“The Old Believers' religious community, whose church is located on Oleh Koshovyi Str. in Chernivtsi, officially announced a decision to withdraw from the Moscow Metropolis of the Russian Old Believers Church and took away from its name and statute any mention of the aggressor country. Now this community will act autonomously,» Bukharov said.

This is the first city-based religious community that officially announced this decision and filed a statement, the official said.

“This community’s desire was preceded by the decision of the clerical center of the Russian Federation to depose Fr Leontiy. Contrary to Russia's will, he continued to serve in the church despite threats of excommunication. The regional council of churches stood for Fr Leontiy, he was supported by all denominations,” Bukharov reported.

On December 19, the first community of Chernivtsi Oblast moved from the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Moscow Patriarchate to the one Local Church of Ukraine.

      Є всякі пастирі і пресвітери, у всіх конфесіях і церквах. Тому міліонерів священників у селах і в містах наврядчи дуже багато.

      Звичайно це поодинокі випадки. Навіщо мусульманам України себе так підставляти.

      А вообще статья прекрасна, ностальгична - давно забытый стиль атеистической коммунистической пропагады советских времён. Где смогли найти такого автора - явно старого непримиримого
