UOC Chief Lawyer: SBU forcibly takes hierarchs to Kiev for "Council"

The UOC said that the bishops were forcibly brought to Kiev

Protopriest Alexander Bakhov reports that the SBU is forcibly taking Metropolitan Agapit (Bevtsik) to Kiev. 

The Security Service branch for the Vinnitsa region is dragging Metropolitan Agapit (Bevtsik) of Mogilev-Podolsky and Shargorod to Kiev, the UOC's chief lawyer Protopriest Alexander Bakhov wrote on his Facebook page on December 14.

According to him, Vladyka Agapit was taken from his home in the Chernovtsy region, where he was staying. According to the official version, he was taken to a conversation with the President.

Father Alexander feared that UOC episcopate will be forced to attend the so-called unification gathering scheduled for December 15. The Synod of the UOC decided to consider the “Unification Council” an as illegal assembly. His Beatitude Onufry and other hierarchs of the UOC who had received invitations to the “Unification Council” returned them to the Patriarch of Constantinople without an answer.
