ROC calls not to circulate fake news about an attack on Lavra

Head of the ROC Synodal Department for the Church’s Relations with Society and Mass Media Vladimir Legoida

The ROC warned that the virus mailing about the attack on the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra is a fake and urged not to circulate it.

This is not the first case of this kind of disinformation about the Lavra, explains the head of the ROC Synodal Department for the Church’s Relations with Society and Mass Media Vladimir Legoida, reports the "Interfax".

"This is the second (or third) time the virus mailing about the attack on the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra has been thrown. Thank God, now all is calm at the Lavra. I understand your concern, but believe that the harm from the dissemination of false information is much greater than the benefits if it were true," V. Legoida stressed.

He assured that modern mass media "will report in less than an hour if, God forbid, something serious happens".

"Do not multiply unverified rumours," concluded the ROC representative.

As the UOJ reported, earlier the abbot of the Holy Dormition Pochayev Lavra, Metropolitan Vladimir of Pochaev, reported threats to the monastery, asked for prayerful support, and urged to protect the shrine, if necessary.
