The sale in Ukraine of the so-called "Manifesto" written by Brenton Tarrant, who shot believers in two mosques in New Zealand, is a provocation, and security services should find out who benefits from it.

This was stated by the Mufti of the Religious administration of Muslims of Ukraine “UMMAH” Said Ismagilov during a round table at Ukrinform.


“Several Ukrainian media outlets circulated information that the "Manifesto" of terrorist Brandon Tarrant who carried out an attack on a mosque in New Zealand, killed large number of Muslims who gathered in the mosque, was translated. Now, this translation in Ukrainian is offered for purchase via one of Telegram channels,” Sheikh Said said.

According to him, at the end of the message it is noted that the book is translated into Ukrainian, published with the cover, its price is 100 UAH, the address to make orders is specified.

“I am absolutely sure that this is a provocation against Ukraine because Ukraine has never had inter-religious conflicts with, say, Muslims. Muslims constitute a very small share of population in Ukraine. We have almost no immigrants from Muslim countries,” Ismagilov said.

He also noted that Muslims of Ukraine have always maintained a patriotic stance and protect the national interests of Ukraine.

“Who needs to spread such calls, translate and implement this "Manifesto" calling for violence against Muslims? I think the Ukrainian people and the state of Ukraine absolutely do not need this, especially in difficult times of war and occupation, with numerous internally displaced persons from the occupied territories to undermine our country's ethnic, religious conflicts,” Ismagilov notes.

Meeting the request of the participants of the round table to submit a respective request to the SBU so that they explained how this literature, especially in Ukrainian translation, had appeared in the country, Head of the Department of Performance Monitoring and Registration of Statuses of Religious Organizations of the Department for Religions and Nationalities of the Ministry of Culture Ivan Papayani assured that it will be done.

“The Ministry of Culture will draw the appropriate conclusions, and the relevant requests will be submitted to security bodies that will clear out everything concerning this book and its distribution,” he said.

Previously, New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said that the New Zealand Foreign Ministry would contact the government of Ukraine about the information about the sale on a Ukrainian website of the "Manifesto" written by the person accused of the shooting in Christchurch. We are referring to the sale of printed versions of the document of 87 pages from the alleged "Ukrainian site for encrypted instant messaging for $4".

On 15 March, 50 people were killed and another 50 injured in two mosques in Christchurch as a result of the shooting of believers.

The attacker was a 28-year-old Australian Brenton Tarrant. He was charged with terrorism, the murder of 51 people and attempted murder of another 40.

On the eve of the attack, the shooter from Christchurch published a document in social networks, which experts in the field of combating terrorism compared with the "Manifesto" by Norwegian nationalist Anders Breivik, who committed a terrorist attack in July 2011.

      За часів союза, УПЦ підлягала моіковському патріярхату, примусово. Від незалежності УПЦ старалась отримати незалежність від Москви. Тепер, коли Україна має ТОМОС та незалежність то Лавру потрібно

      Последние события показали глубокий кризис РПЦ МП, где только отдельные редкие священнослужители твёрдо исповедуют Православную Веру, как схиигумен отец Сергий Романов, которого сейчас травят
