Metropolitan Luke comments on his "talk" with SBU

Metropolitan Luke of Zaporozhye and Melitopol

According to Met. Luke, the SBU officers informed him of the need to “be alert” when travelling abroad.

On November 19, 2018, Metropolitan Luke of Zaporozhye and Melitopol was summoned to the SBU office.

As reported, the meeting with the officers of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) was held in a friendly, delicate tone.

“The SBU employees informed me that due to my frequent travel outside Ukraine, I should be alert in case I could be given something, asked for something or offered. So that there will be no provocation.”

According to the hierarch, the SBU officers asked him, if possible, to inform them if there were such “encroachments”.

Earlier, the head of the Legal Department of the UOC Protopriest Alexander Bakhov said that the SBU had begun to invite some bishops of the UOC for a “talk” or “conversation”. The cleric explained that there is no such form of communication as “conversation” in the law, and it is better to go with a lawyer to a “conversation” with the SBU.
