Media: Andrei Yurash worked as a deputy chief of Yanukovich's election team
Andrei Yurash, Director of Department for Religions, who has repeatedly declared his adherence to the ideas of the Revolution of Dignity, worked for Viktor Yanukovich.
On June 18, 2019, journalist Vladimir Boyko reported on his Facebook page that the director of the Department for Religious Affairs and Nationalities of the Ministry of Culture Andrei Yurash, who was associated with Petro Poroshenko’s election campaign, in 2004 was deputy head of Yanukovych’s election headquarters in Lvov region.
Vladimir Boyko writes that “Andrei Vasilyevich Yurash, Director of the Department for Religious Affairs and Nationalities of the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine, a well-known ‘Poroshenko-bot’ who zealously served the election campaign of Petro Poroshenko ... in 2004 he was deputy head of Yanukovych’s election team in Lvov region, while in July 2011 was appointed a member of the Public Humanitarian Council to the Regional State Administration.”
In 2018, Andrei Yurash was awarded the Order of Merit of the III degree from Petro Poroshenko.
Earlier it was reported that "patriarch" Filaret Denisenko said: the head of the Department for Religious Affairs at the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine Andrei Yurash publicly tells a lie. He explained: the statements of Andrei Yurash that the Kiev Patriarchate de jure ceased to exist and any attempts to restore it will lead to the establishment of a completely new religious organization "from scratch" are not true.
The son of the official of the Ministry of Culture, Sviatoslav Yurash, a member of the team of Vladimir Zelensky, recently got married in St. George Cathedral of the Patriarchate of Constantinople in Istanbul. In additon, the media found out that his wife, nee Sofia Zubko, is a cosplayer, actively publishing herself in social networks dressed in costumes of demonic-type characters and distributing materials on the subject of Satanism.
