The head of the OCU commented on his steps to make inroads into the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra.

Serhiy Dumenko stated on his Facebook page that the OCU had taken a "serious step towards the return of Ukrainian prayer" to the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra.

Dumenko warned his supporters that it would not be possible to conquer the Lavra at once and urged them to be patient. At the same time, he is sure that the process of introducing the OCU to the Lavra has already been launched: “Someone is outraged because they want everything to be decided already. But one should not underestimate the significance of what happened – today the Ukrainian Lavra has really acquired subjectivity, although so far it is like a newborn baby.”

Dumenko sees the “hand of God” in the actions of the authorities against the UOC, and he calls believers who are ready to defend their shrine “enemies of Ukraine”, who “today are trying to provoke indignation, but, as before, they will not succeed.”

“God is with us, which means that a good deed, in which a significant step has been taken today, will certainly end in a spiritual victory for the Church and Ukraine,” Serhiy Petrovych concluded his publication.

Earlier, the UOJ wrote that Dumenko called the words of Christ a proverb.
