The head of the UOC-KP and Petro Poroshenko
Such a “black” political technology for the country’s division has not yet been used, said political analyst Dmitry Korneychuk.
Power by Filaret is trying to split the Ukrainian society on a religious theme. Wrote about this on his page in Facebook by political analyst Dmitry Korneychuk.
“Poroshenko is deliberately hands Filaret is ready to push for the presidential election Ukrainians foreheads on religious subject, – said the expert. And, I must say, even for one election is not used as “black” political technology of the division of the country. And the language topic “rocked”, and the country was divided into two parts. But the topic of religion was “taboo” because all the politicians understood that religious conflict can start, but very difficult then to stop it.”
Recent statements Filaret, according to Korniychuk, indicate that an independent Church is needed in order to seize churches of the UOC.
“It’s interesting now to see the reaction of the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and to the words of Filaret about the planned Church “raiding”, – said the analyst. – You see in Istanbul one simple thing: to give independence of the Ukrainian Church in the current political environment is to doom the Ukraine to religious war? Are there to take such a step, undermining the foundations of Orthodoxy?”.
Earlier Filaret said that after the recognition of a Single Local Church property, the UOC shall become the property of the newly created Church structures. Later, the head of the UOC-KP assured that the transition of religious communities in the future Church will be voluntary.
