Newly-formed Orthodox Church in Ukraine was Recognised by Uniates and the LGBT

Translated from Fraza.ua.

Not a single one of local Orthodox Churches has sent her greetings to the “unifying council”, and the Orthodox Church in Ukraine (OCU) that was formed there. Meanwhile, as the journalists from Fraza found out, the OCU was recognised by the US State Department, the LGBT community, and the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church (what I call “Uniates“). The Vatican has at first recognised the Church but then refused to recognise it.

Expert on religions, Alexandr Voznesensky wrote that the LGBT community recommends the newly-formed “unified Church” under the leadership of Epiphanius. The expert added: “This is what I understand as World recognition. After this, recognition of local Churches is not needed.”

TASS reports that in the opinion of the Deputy Spokesperson under the leadership of the 70th Secretary of State, Mark Pompeo, Robert Palladino, “the creation of this Church is a historic event for Ukraine.” He greeted, in the name of United States, the head of OCU, “metropolitan” Epiphanius with being elected. 48366708_1941863119195296_3816984762199834624_n.jpg

Today (the article was published on 18 of December 2018), the press secretary of OCU, Eustratius (Zorya) announced that a report, which has appeared on the Vatican website, which spoke about the election of Epiphanius, de facto means the Pope has recognised has recognised the Church. He wrote: “It is de facto a sign, that in accordance with the order of  the ecumenical dialogue with the Orthodox Churches, by the power of the canonical recognition by the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of the Ukrainian Church and her Metropolitan, this Church acquired subjectness in the eyes of Rome.”

However, Zorya’s joy was premature. As it turned out, Vatican’s official portal did not recognise Epiphanius. This was announced on 18 December at the directorate of the Holy See’s press service.

The head of Ukrainian Greek Catholics (UGCC), Svyatoslav also sent greetings to supporters of the OCU in connection with the “unification council” and the election of a new representative. This was announced by the head of the pastoral service in Ukraine’s penitentiary system of the Patriarchal curia of the UGCC, Konstantin Pateley, on his Facebook page.

Poroshenko et al. rub Shoulders with a Nazi Leader in Istanbul

Poroshenko seems to not mind posing with Nazis, and so he doesn’t have a problem rubbing shoulders with them in a church. That’s because the post-Maidan regime actively encourages Naziism… 

The post-Maidan regime, with a silent support of its Western backers, promotes historical revisionism, and Nazi collaborators, and uses contemporary fans of Hitler as a force to harass the genuine opposition. A white version of the tonton macoutes of Papa Doc Duvalier in Haiti.

The C14 is Ukrainian neo-nazi gang likely named after the British C18, an abbreviation meaning: “Combat”, and the number 18 stands for the first and the eighth letter of the alphabet, the initials of Adolf Hitler. Number 14 is a no less significant cypher in the neo-nazi scene, and it stands for the 14 words of the late American neo-nazi terrorist David Lane: “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.”

Evhen “Zheka” Karas’ is the leader of C14, probably by virtue of being the tallest and strongest of his gang of troglodytes. Below you can see a video of his gang attacking the defence lawyer of Vasyl’ Muravitsky, a journalist from Zhytomyr, who is being tried for treason. Apparently he did not love the Maidan enough in his publications. But he also wrote about local mafia which illegally mines amber and this may have irked some authorities even more.

In any normal country, Zheka and his gang would be sitting in jail now awaiting a trial for disrupting the court, and perhaps other offences. But this is post-Maidan Ukraine, and Zheka likely has powerful friends. On the photo below is he in Istanbul at the ceremony of Ukraine becoming a metropolia of the Ecumenical Patriarchate right next to Lutsenko and Poroshenko.

Filaret Awards a CIA Veteran

I have not touched the religious topic on this blog yet. I was waiting for some interesting news, and this perhaps is it. Censor.net reports…

Patriarch Filaret awarded an order to the former deputy director of CIA Devine for [his] support for Ukrainian independence and the formation of the Local Ukrainian Orthodox Church.

His Holiness Patriarch of Kiev and All Rus-Ukraine, Filaret has met with the former deputy director of the CIA Jack Devine.

During their meeting, Jack Devine expressed his sincere delight at the level of support for the idea of Ukraine receiving a Tomos of Autocephaly of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.

He also remarked on the exceptional role of the Kievan Patriarch Filaret in his almost 30 years struggle for the formation of a Local Ukrainian Orthodox Church that is independent from Russia, and commended Filaret for defending the rights of Christians in front of the atheistic Soviet government.

Patriarch Filaret thanked Jack Devine for the help United States provides to Ukraine regarding the matters of Ukrainian independence and the formation of a Local Ukrainian Orthodox Church.

Following the presentation of the President of the Council of the “Ukraine the 21st Century” Fund, Bohdan Hubsky and a member of the Council of the Fund, Pavlo Yaroshenko, the Head of the Kiev Patriarchate awarded Jack Devine with the order of St. Andrew the First Called.

“Azov” Nazis Erected an Idol of Veles

In one of the villages of the Chernigov region Ukrainian Nazis, militants from the punitive “Azov” battalion, established a pagan “place of power” and also installed a wooden idol for the purpose of carrying out ceremonies there. This was reported by the head of the Kiev branch of the radical National Corpus organisation, which was founded on the basis of the neo-Nazi “Azov” regiment, Sergey Filimonov on his Facebook page.

A representative of UPC (KP) publishes public performances of Adolf Hitler, and posts about the activities of the “Right Sector.”

The cleric of UPC (KP), Bohdan Kostyuk posted on [his] page on Facebook about the secrets of oratory mastership of the leader of Nazi Germany Adolf Hitler.

“Father” Bohdan is the “chaplain” of the military unit 3056 of the National Guard, and together with the fighters of this unit he engages in patriotic education of the youth.

In one of the posts shared by the “hieromonk” of UPC (KP), the leader of this party (the Right Sector) Andriy Tarasenko writes: “We are helping parishes of the Moscow Patriarchate to transfer to Kiev Patriarchate (we have a dozens of anathemas bestowed upon ourselves by Muscovite priests), we are providing security on large events of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, we are providing other help to Churches.” Tarasenko also explains the goals of such activity: “…without the influence of Ukrainian Churches [we will not be able] to mobilise and revive our nation.”

There are also post about the current activities of “OUN-UPA” on his page…

A priest of [the canonical] Ukrainian Orthodox Church, Hennadiy Shkyl’ reacted to posts of the “hieromonk”, and reminded us that this cleric serves in a church usurped by the Kiev “Patriarchate” in the Kherson region. The church came under the jurisdiction of the UPC (KP) through “deceit and threats.” Father Hennadiy asks whether these are the people they are being asked to be united with within a United Local Church?
