The Metropolitan Vyshgorodsky and Chernobyl Paul
Vicar of Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra responded to SBU information that he allegedly was preparing a provocation to the “unification Council”.
Accusations of the SBU in trying to disrupt the “unification Council” – that’s treason against the Holy Church. On 14 December, said the Metropolitan Vyshgorodsky Chernobyl and Paul at a press briefing, reports 112.ua.
“That’s treason against me and against the Holy Church, against Christ himself, – said Bishop Paul. But do not forget that the end of time and the term of the President, Verkhovna Rada, Cabinet of Ministers, and we were, are and will be. I have over 25 years of governorship saw, heard, and experienced oppression from the President, the oppression of the Cabinet from political parties. But I want to say that the name of Christ, which you decry is best for me, and it made me stronger. So the more you ridicule the Church, offend religious people, especially you sign a shameful verdict. Herod was also against Christ, performed in the 17th year, destroyed temples, but I wouldn’t want your fate was comparable to these people.”
