News bulletin No. 3 on violation of the constitutional rights of believers of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church for the period from May 29 to June 10, 2019, was published on the website of the Department for External Church Relations of the UOC.
The pdf-format of Newsletter No. 3 in the Ukrainian language is freely available for reading and downloading. Versions of the document in the English language will be presented to the public in the near future.
The archive of newsletters can be found on the official website of the UOC DECR UOC in the Newsletter Section. One may link to it through the menu of the site: "Human Rights Defenders" - "Newsletter".
Recall that in April 2019, the UOC DECR UOC began publishing its own newsletter on the blatant facts of violations of the rights of parishioners and the clergy of the canonical Church. The need for such a release arose "due to the growing incidence of offenses committed against the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, as well as to properly inform and draw attention of the clergy and believers of other Local Orthodox Churches, the government, the media, human rights and expert organizations to the above cases".
