Zelensky Govt Demands Orthodox Church Leader Put Under House Arrest

So let me get this straight: under Zelensky, Ukraine is a “One Party” political system. And now he is demanding that the head of the Orthodox Church is placed under house arrest!

Hmmmm………sounds like Tyranny to me!

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) – Ukraine’s top security agency notified a top Orthodox priest Saturday that he was suspected of justifying Russia’s aggression, a criminal offense, amid a bitter dispute over a famed Orthodox monastery.

Metropolitan Pavel, the abbot of the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra monastery, Ukraine’s most revered Orthodox site, has strongly resisted the authorities’ order to vacate the complex. Earlier in the week, he cursed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, threatening him with damnation.

During a court hearing in the Ukrainian capital, the metropolitan strongly rejected the claim by the Security Service of Ukraine, known as the SBU, that he condoned Russia’s invasion. Pavel described the accusations against him as politically driven.

SBU agents raided his residence and prosecutors asked the court to put him under house arrest pending the investigation. The hearing was adjourned until Monday after the metropolitan said he wasn’t feeling well.

The monks in the monastery belong to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, which has been accused of having links to Russia. The dispute surrounding the property, also known as Monastery of the Caves, is part of a wider religious conflict that has unfolded in parallel with the war.

The Ukrainian government has cracked down on the Ukrainian Orthodox Church over its historic ties to the Russian Orthodox Church, whose leader, Patriarch Kirill, has supported Russian President Vladimir Putin in the invasion of Ukraine.

The Ukrainian Orthodox Church has insisted that it’s loyal to Ukraine and has denounced the Russian invasion from the start. The church declared its independence from Moscow.

But Ukrainian security agencies have claimed that some in the UOC have maintained close ties with Moscow. They’ve raided numerous holy sites of the church and later posted photos of rubles, Russian passports and leaflets with messages from the Moscow patriarch as proof that some church officials have been loyal to Russia.

The Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra monastery is owned by the Ukrainian government, and the agency overseeing it notified the monks that it was terminating the lease and they had until Wednesday to leave the site.

Metropolitan Pavel told worshipers Wednesday that the monks would not leave pending the outcome of a lawsuit the UOC filed in a Kyiv court to stop the eviction.

The government claims that the monks violated their lease by making alterations to the historic site and other technical infractions. The monks rejected the claim as a pretext.

Many Orthodox communities in Ukraine have cut their ties with the UOC and transitioned to the rival Orthodox Church of Ukraine, which more than four years ago received recognition from the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople.

Bartholomew I is considered the first among equals among the leaders of the Eastern Orthodox churches. Patriarch Kirill and most other Orthodox patriarchs have refused to accept his decision authorizing the second Ukrainian church. source

Only God knows the complete truth about this war. If I say anything bad about Zelensky, then I’m immediately called a Putin lover. At the risk of being attacked again (I should be getting used to this) I believe that I am discerning that Putin and Zelensky are equally evil.

But I do think that there is much wickedness in Zelensky which the press is trying desperately to hide. I think that he is closer to Schwab of the WEF than Putin is.

And I don’t care what anyone says – even one nazi in the army is one too many; and I hear that there are close to 7000. Zelensky is a Jew in name only. He’s an atheist and has no regard for human life.

But then again, one could say that Putin only cares about Russians.

I’m not a Putin lover. I’m not a Zelensky lover. I am a lover of the Lord Jesus Christ!

    Actually, I believe your discernment is right on with the two leaders. However, it seems like there are more evil leaders then ever. Could be my imagination.
