Filaret: The Kiev Patriarchate was not Abolished. My Role as the Patriarch is to Preserve it.


The honorary Patriarch of the Orthodox Church in Ukraine said that he would like to preserve the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kiev Patriarchate, and he is ready for a schism.

The honorary Patriarch of the Orthodox Church in Ukraine (OCU) said it is possible the Kiev Patriarchate will split off from the OCU, and considers that he has the power to convene a Church synod. He said this on air of the TV channel. 1+1 on 12 May.

According to Filaret, the head of UOC, the Metropolitan of Kiev and All Ukraine, Epiphanius, has spoken to him not more than five times since the creation of the autocephalous Church.

He said that the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kiev Patriarchate still exists, and the Unifying Council was not the gathering of Ukrainian Churches.

The 25 Percenters

Svidomites can’t meme…

Ever since Porokh lost the election. His followers have organised a cult called the 25%. The number is based upon the number of votes Porokh got in the presidential election. I think this fad will fade away once Zelensky’s presidency takes off. It should be noted that 25% of 62% turnout is only 15% eligible voters that voted for Porokh. They were mostly concentrated in the West of the country, the Lvov region, that is. The rest were representatives of some of the business class, who are afraid of Kolomoysky. There are scattered svidomites throughout the country and abroad.

25% minority, after defeat, found in itself the strength to show thank you to the loser. We have yet to see the victorious majority and the victor too. The people are afraid to look each other in the eye and see how little they have in common.

This philosopher is Volodymyr Viatrovych, read more about him (here and here).

Here are some of the cult’s followers from Twitter…

Santa’s Cool Tattoos

I discovered the hero of this Vice documentary half naked…

That’s “Santa” aka. Volodymyr Regesha

Remember kids, we have been told there aren’t any nazis in Ukraine…

This creep came to the spotlight recently over an attack on a journalist, Volodymyr Runets of Current Times, a Russian language media project of RFE/RL, a US government propaganda arm. Santa literally shot at everyone in a club from an automatic rifle.

This happened on 5 May, and Santa has since been let off. reports:

The court proceedings in the best traditions of the post Maidan reality. The court room was filled with colleagues of the journalist, Runets on one hand. From the side were nationalists and Members of Parliament, who support such ideas. Andriy Antonishchak (Bloc of Petro Poroshenko), Oksana Korchinskaya (Radical Party), Serhiy Vysotckiy, Andriy Levus (both from National Front), Egor Sobolev (Samopomich), Andriy Ilenko (Svoboda).

Remember this list next time somebody tells you that the Right Sector received meager electoral results. All the parties, with the exception of “Svoboda” are mainstream and not immediately considered nationalist by superficial observers.
