Representatives of the self-proclaimed Kiev Patriarchate attacked the unfinished building of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in the village of Borovaya, in the Kiev Region.
They destroyed the roof and the walls of the building and threatened the rector and believers, the UOC press service reports.
It has been about ten years that the UOC local community has been forced to celebrate Divine Liturgies in a room they equipped themselves.
"Local authorities persistently refuse to allot land for building a church. To improve the situation, the hostages of which are UOC believers, a local woman gave them her own building in the village suburbs, so that they could rebuild it for the church," the message reads.
