Ukrainian Nationalists from “C14” Once Again Came to the Desyatinny Monastery and Threatened Worshippers

Translated by Ollie Richardson


Right-wing radicals from the C14 “Sich” and “Traditions and Order” parties again came the Church of the Tithes.

The group of nationalists tried to organize a “performance” outside the walls of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Desyatinny monastery. The radicals posted a video and a photo from the action on their Facebook page.

They set fire to flares and started shouting “FSB – get out of Ukraine”, “Crimea is ours”, and “Glory to nation – death to enemies”.

They started asking the priest, who came out because of the shouting, whether he knows that it’s the anniversary of the occupation of Crimea today.

Having heard the reply of the priest – that he considers Crimea to be Ukrainian – they started accusing his “colleagues”, in particular the deputy of the Kiev Pechersk Lavra Metropolitan Pavel of Vyshgorod and Chernobyl of not believing that Crimea is Ukrainian.

To the question of the purpose of their arrival, they reported that the monastery was built without documents, and when they were told that there are documents, they started claiming that they were obtained recently via corruption.

Eventually, having seen that parishioners begin to gather at the monastery and were complaining about the cold, the right-wing radicals left.
