On the eve of the next meeting of the National Security and Defense Council, I would like to draw its members’ attention to the influential and financially powerful agent network of the Russian Federation in Ukraine. We are referring to a branch of the so-called ROC, the UOC-MP.
“Firstly, this entity was created by the Communist Party banned in Ukraine, headed by the butcher Stalin (there are enough archival documents). Secondly, in all the years of Ukraine’s independence, this child of the NKVD, hiding behind religious slogans, conducts targeted anti-state activities (there are many facts, including those documented by the SBU),” he said.
According to him, with the beginning of the Russian-Ukrainian war, the Moscow Patriarchate has become a reliable stronghold of Russia-backed forces, turning religious buildings (churches and monasteries) into nurseries of anti-Ukrainian propaganda and bases and headquarters of Russian militants.
“In Crimea, in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, from the very beginning of the occupation, Moscow priests have become one of the main driving forces for the seizure of Ukrainian land. In almost all areas where the Kremlin planned to implement its plan to create a so-called “Novorossiya”, Moscow priests actively supported these attempts,” Yarosh noted.
The public leader also stressed that the UOC-MP, in its anti-state intentions and actions, practically joined another political and oligarchic anti-Ukrainian group, the OPPJ.
“That is, all their activities are coordinated from a single Kremlin center and are aimed at eliminating the state of Ukraine. Again, the facts are more than enough,” Yarosh stated.
“So, the activities of the Russian Church, during Ukraine’s war for its independence, pose an immediate threat to the existence of our state; therefore, the Russian Church must be eliminated, its imperial activities prohibited, and property and material resources returned to the Ukrainian people,” added the former leader of the “Right Sector”, Dmytro Yarosh.
