Ukrainian schismatics rent churches for yoga practice and cafes, according to media reports

Kiev, December 24, 2015

Representatives of the self-proclaimed “Kyiv Patriarchate” have a practice of leasing their churches for commercial purpose, reports Interfax-Religion.

Vydubytsky Monastery in Kiev was unlawfully given to pseudo-patriarch Philaret Denisenko by former Prime Minister of the Ukraine Pavlo Lazarenko. Vydubytsky Monastery in Kiev was unlawfully given to pseudo-patriarch Philaret Denisenko by former Prime Minister of the Ukraine Pavlo Lazarenko.

Specifically, a part of the premises of the ancient Vydubytsky Monastery in Kiev are rented for yoga, while premises of the Holy Trinity Cathedral of the city of Lutsk (North-Western Ukraine), which was seized by the “Kyiv Patriarchate” in as early as 1992, are used as clothing stores, coffee houses, and other facilities, reports the Golos Pravdy (“Voice of Truth”) news website.

In addition to this, the Church of the Life-Giving Spring in Kiev was recently leased for a secular event of the so-called International Order of St. Stanislaus, which, according to the above-mentioned website, is connected with freemasonry. The order donated 10,000 hryvni (a basic monetary unit of the Ukraine), or 435 USA dollars for this use.

The journalists phoned this church, pretending that they were organizing a cultural event for a deputy. “Rector” of the parish Valery Semantso gave the green light for letting out the hall. When the journalists asked if they could install a platform inside the church, he answered: “We have a Gospel stand on one leg, it may serve as a platform.”

Nikolaus, If we published everything there is to know about what is going on in the Ukraine right now with the schismatic "Kiev Patriarchate" you simply wouldn't believe it. We love and respect Ukrainians, and that is why we publish this news. You are defending a violent, chaotic minority while we are defending the meek, Christian, wonderful majority.

It is really incredible that you spread such infamous lies over your alleged ukraininian brothers.- I understand why the Ukrainians refuse the Moscow Patriarchate.
