A Clergyman of the Kiev Patriarchate Promotes Hitler’s Speeches and the Patriotic Education of the Youth

Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard



A Hieromonk of Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kiev Patriarchate propagandises Hitler’s speeches and the activity of Right Sector on his Facebook.

The “clergyman” of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kiev Patriarchate Bogdan Kostyuk made several posts about the secrets of the oratorical skill of the leader of Nazi Germany Adolf Hitler. “Father” Bogdan serves as a “chaplain” in military unit 3056 of the National Guard of Ukraine, and, together with militants from this unit, is engaged in the patriotic education of the youth. Posts about the activity of “Right Sector” on the page of the “priest” jump also out at the eye.

The head of this party Andrey Tarasenko wrote in one of the posts that the “Hieromonk” of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kiev Patriarchate shared: “We facilitate thetransition of communities from the Moscow Patriarchate to the Kiev Patriarchate (Moscow priests have imposed more than a dozen anathemas on us), we provide protection for the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church’s big services, we provide help to other Churches”. Tarasenko also explains the purposes of such activity: “without the influence of the Ukrainian Churches it is impossible to fully mobilise and revive our people”.
