Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard


The ultra-right was searching on the territory of one of the main orthodox churches for people who are fighting in Donbass…

Radicals came to a holy place after participating in a march of right-wing forces and a rally near the Verkhovna Rada.

“We came to the territory of the Lavra for an excursion. Here we are looking for separatists who are fighting in Donbass,” it is said in the statement of the nationalist organisation C14.

The ultra-right asked all people who they met on the way what country possesses Crimea. They entered into verbal exchanges with Father Pavel and his assistants and accused them of separatism and espionage. The patrol officers who arrived at the church had a discussion with the nationalists, then they left the territory of the Lavra.

“An excursion of nationalists at the Lavra. As a result there are two cut-off patches of Cossacks. We also caught the prior of the Lavra,” it is said in the statement.
