The Commission for Religious Affairs of the Public Council under the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine analyzed problematic aspects of the practical application of electricity tariffs for religious organizations.

This issue was the subject of consideration at the meeting held on October 17, on the premises of the Department of Religious and Ethnic Affairs of the Ministry, according to the Institute for Religious Freedom.

Chairman of the Commission and Executive Director of IRS Maxim Vasin cited facts of ambiguous application of the law, when religious organizations are demanded to purchase electricity at commercial rates instead of the tariff for the population.

During the meeting, Director of the Department of Religious and Ethnic Affairs Ministry of Culture Volodymyr Yushkevych told the Committee members about current issues of the activity of the public authority for religious matters. According to him, the Department initiates professional development seminars on religious matters for the professionals of regional state administrations.

The meeting also considered the problematic issues of charitable activity and distribution of humanitarian aid from abroad under the auspices of religious organizations. Establishing an effective mechanism for interaction of the churches is especially important to help migrants from Donbas and the Crimea, as well as in the context of the needs of the army and those affected in the ATO zone.

In conclusion, the members of the Commission for Religious Affairs of the Public Council under the Ministry of Culture exchanged views on other issues that need to be addressed in the near future.

      Так, вони - проімперські московські і промосковські (в Україні) церковники, безумовно, "знають", що чинять... Але це - т. зв. їхнє "знання" продиктоване і накинуте їм, по суті...

      П.Velovs, я не можу і не в праві заперечити слова Господа нашого Іісуса Христа, але скажу московські церковники добре знають, що вони чинять. І тут хотілося б нагадати свою позицію, щодо істерики
