Interior Ministry: Pro-Russian terrorists murdered, mutilated two Sloviansk priests & their sons

Security officials have exhumed a mass grave in the Donetsk region where they say a pile of mutilated bodies – two priests and the two sons of one of them – were found. The official, Interior Minister advisor Anton Herashchenko, reports the dead were involved in assisting the Anti-Terrorist Operation (ATO).

“We have now exhumed a grave where two priests from Sloviansk were buried. Also, the two sons of one of the preists, who were tortured and killed just because they helped our soldiers,” said Herashchenko.

While Herashchenko refrained from stating which denomination the priests belonged to, but Patriarch Filaret has previously spoken out against “numerous death threats against the Kyiv Patriarchate clergy and believers” by Russian-backed terrorists in the Donetsk region. Virtually all Christian denominations other than the Russian Orthodox Church have been subject to levels of harassment, threats, kidnapping, torture, and violence.

Sloviansk has had a documented history of brutal murders during its occupation by Igor Girkin’s militia, who was recently discovered to have carried out summary executions.

Editor’s note: This article originally mentioned “children” were found, but was later changed solely to “sons.” While they were the priest’s children, officials have not explicitly informed that they were minors and we would like to avoid any confusion.
Dear readers! Since you’ ve made it to this point, we have a favor to ask. Russia’s hybrid war against Ukraine is ongoing, but major news agencies have gone away, which is why it's extra important to provide news about Ukraine in English. We are a small independent journalist team on a shoestring budget, have no political or state affiliation, and depend on our readers to keep going (using ťhe chance - a big thank you to our generous supporters, we couldn't make it without you). We are now $5,000 short of our financial goal and need your support to continue working. If you like what you see, please help keep us online with a donation!

      True. Now that the whole World knows without a doubt that there are no “facists” in Ukraine, Putin is waging a truly criminal war, without any meaning whatsoever.

        But france likes war criminals….seems to always have. Too bad other countries keep saving france. Europe probably would have been better off to just have pieces of it dissolved into other nations. Save paris though so french will have some place to retreat to.

    History always shows, humans are not safe around russians and must protect themselves from russians.

      True. We have their leaders to thank for that.

        Yup. Always amazing how arrogant and ignorant russians are. And that’s why they keep winding up with dictators because it seems like that’s the only thing they’ll settle for. They’re a lot like muslims in that sense.
