Now, the Ukrainian Orthodox Church is as close to autocephaly as ever, and this is a matter of deep concern in the Kremlin. For Moscow this means, first of all, the collapse of one of its most developed and integrated security services, external intelligence and soft power propaganda network in Ukraine. Clearly the Kremlin cannot allow the closure of the Ukrainian branch of the Church of the Moscow Patriarchate, which had made a significant contribution to the 2014 Russian invasion, as well as promotion to Moscow proxy politicians.
Clearly, we can expect the Kremlin services in Ukraine to resort to the most extreme methods to prevent the liberation of the Ukrainian Orthodox. Of course, now airplanes with money fly across Eastern Europe to influence the choice of representatives of local Orthodox churches in upcoming discussions on tomos (a decree of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople on providing autocephaly for the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.) for Ukraine. But the most important step taken by the Kremlin are direct threats to Ukraine.
In particular, we must pay attention to a last statement by Vadim Novinsky, one of the proteges of the Kremlin in Ukraine: “If the splitting of the church is legitimate, the probability of the collapse of the country, civil war for religious reasons is probable. It will be started in every city, every village, for every temple. “That is, through this particular declaration, Moscow sends a direct message to Ukraine, that” If Ukraine finally gets its own independent church, we will organize a civil war for you. “.
Indeed, Novinsky’s statement proves the information that the provocations have been planned for some time until the date of consideration of the tomos: the burning of churches, the imitation of attacks by false nationalist groups, terrorist attacks, bloody clashes , perhaps even homicides. That is, the “orthodox czar and the anointed of God” threatens the Ukrainians with a new large-scale aggression using Orthodoxy as a pretext. Thanks to Novinsky, it’s all so accessible to us, I explained in plain language.
A prisoner of the concentration camp of Majdanek (the extermination camp of the Third Reich on the outskirts of Lublin, ed), in response to the question about what she considers the main lesson of the war and the Holocaust, said: “If one says that he wants to kill you, believe him. “
I believe that Mr. Novinsky and I hope that the Ukrainian special services, Ukrainian politicians, the Ukrainian president and all Ukrainians do too.
Without exaggerating, the future of the country and its people is now at stake. All foreign agents and provocateurs must be kicked out of the country, using all legal methods, otherwise they will keep or divide the nation.
The Crimean Tatars have a definite saying on this occasion: “keep your ax sharp if your neighbor is Russian”.
