    Orthodox (UOC-MP) Bishop Calls for Repentance for "Ethnocide of Jews under Khmelnytskyi"

    Archbishop Ionafan (Yeletskyh) of Tulchyn and Bratslav of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Moscow Patriarchate (UOC-MP)addressed his flock with an official call to repent. The address reads that the reason for repentance is "the mass ethnocide of Jews under Hetman of Ukraine Bohdan Khmelnytskyi." "In Soviet times, this theme was prohibited. It is not found in school textbooks even now. But the Jewish chronicles of that sad time call out to heaven about these little known black spots of Ukrainian history," reads the address of the bishop.
