Russian Special Service plan attacks on Moscow Patriarchate churches in Ukraine



The Press Center of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church Kyiv Patriarchate posted on its official site  10/10 2014 that Russian Special Service forces are preparing provocations against the Moscow Patriarchate.  These attacks are planned for the 14th of October, the Feast of the Holy Virgin.

“Under the disguise of Ukrainian nationalists and Kyivan Patriarchate supporters, provocateurs are planning attacks on the Kyivan Pecherska Lavra and churches of the Moscow Patriarchate. We are receiving information from many regions in Ukraine concerning the spread of flyers pretending to be from Ukrainian patriots and members of the Kyivan Patriarchate. These flyers call for physical attacks on the spiritual leadership of the Moscow Patriarchate and the takeover of their churches on October 14. To the best of our knowledge, the higher officials of the Moscow Patriarchate plan to be abroad at that time.”

“The Press Center of the Kyivan Patriarchate affirms that the Kyivan Patriarchate is not connected with any of these preparations against the Moscow Church officials or their churches. Also that the Kyivan Patriarchate has no connection with these flyers and severely condemns any actions against the Moscow clerics and churches.”

“While some representatives of the Moscow Patriarchate in Ukraine allow themselves to lead anti-Ukrainian and separatist agitation, they should do so in a lawful manner and not by criminal force.”

The Kyivan Patriarchate further called for everyone not to take part in “the preparation and implementation of any criminal actions directed against the clerics and churches of the Moscow Patriarchate, including this one planned for October 14 by the Russian special services.”

    Well it seems obvious that clergy of all denominations should have police protection until the whackos cool off by Moscow intervention. Sounds like the Soviet Union all over.

      People think I’m kidding about russia.

      “Ilya Ivanovich Ivanov (Russian: Илья́ Ива́нович Ивано́в, August 1 [O.S. July 20] 1870-March 20, 1932) was a Russian and Soviet biologist who specialized in the field of artificial insemination and the interspecific hybridization of animals. He was involved in controversial attempts to create a human-ape hybrid.

      In the 1920s, Ivanov carried out a series of experiments to create a
      human/nonhuman ape hybrid. Working with human sperm and female
      chimpanzees, he failed to create a pregnancy.[1]
      In 1929 he organized a set of experiments involving nonhuman ape sperm
      and human volunteers, but was delayed by the death of his last orangutan.”

      Is it just me, or does putin look like a chimpanzee?
