Social media remind of Filaret who awarded the radical charged with murder
Sergei Sternenko received a medal "for sacrifice” from the Ukrainian schismatics.
The former leader of the Odessa cell of the "Right Sector" Sergei Sternenko, accused of premeditated murder, was distinguished by the high distinction from the Kyiv Patriarchate. Users of social networks reminded that last year the so-called "patriarch" Filaret awarded him the medal "For sacrifice and love for Ukraine."
"I’ll fresh up your memory with something about the recent "hero", Sergei Sternenko," wrote Aleksandr Voznesensky on his Facebook page and added a news screen dated October 2016.
The murder, which the radical is accused of, took place on May 24 in Odessa. According to media reports, two men attacked Sternenko. As a result of the skirmish, one of them, who later turned out to be a fighter of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, died of stab wounds.
The defendant, who is in treatment in one of the clinics in Kiev, claims to have acted within the framework of self-defense. Sternenko is not the first radical implicated in serious crimes to be awarded by the Kyiv Patriarchate.
The same medal "For sacrifice and love of Ukraine" from the hands of Filaret was received by policeman Vita Zaverukhza who was charged with the murder, as well as ”Tornado” battalion commander Ruslan Onishchenko, convicted recently of "sexual desire in an unnatural way under the threat of violence", kidnapping and illegal detention, torture, forcible suicide, extortion, robbery, and mugging.
Highly evaluated by the Kyiv Patriarchate was the notorious site Mirotvorets (Peacemaker), convicted of illegal publication of personal data of citizens of Ukraine and foreigners and having discredited Ukraine before the UN.
