The head of the self-proclaimed “Kiev patriarchate” Mikhail Denisenko in Kiev “consecrated” and sent Easter Kulich to Donbass for “ATO” militants.
This was reported on the official website of the so-called Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kiev Patriarchate.
According to the information on the website, on April 2nd in the St. Michael’s Golden-Domed Monastery Filaret consecrated and gave for Ukrainian militants in Donbass 5000 Easter Kulich, which will be delivered directly to the front line. The Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kiev Patriarchate noted that the Kulich were acquired with the support of the “Svoboda” Kiev city party organisation.
“Our church, like in previous years, cares for our soldiers who sacrifice their lives and defend the Ukrainian land. The Kulich is not just bread, it is sign that God himself, who is Life, is connected with this bread,” said Filaret.
The pseudo-patriarch noted that people who sacrifice themselves are worthy of an eternal and blissful life.
Filaret’s deputy Metropolitan Epifaniy, Archbishop Vyshgorodsky – managing the affairs of the Kiev patriarchate, the member of the “Fatherland” party Vladimir Bondarenko, deputies of the Kiev City Council, military personnel, volunteers, and public figures also took part in the consecration.
