The network published another appeal to the President of Ukraine with a demand to stop ruthless repression against the UOC.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy must stop the criminal terror aimed at destroying canonical Orthodoxy in the country. This was said by a parishioner of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, Аnna, in an appeal to the head of the Ukrainian state, which was published by the “1Kozaktv” YouTube channel.

According to her, everything that our ancestors handed down to us by inheritance – faith, spirituality and the Church itself – is being destroyed now in Ukraine.

"Do not persecute our Church! Do not persecute Christ from Ukraine! The external enemy is beating us, so why destroy our state from inside?” says the girl. “Do not destroy what our ancestors handed down to us. After all, they knew that you can't live in this world without God!"

Anna has grown up in the Orthodox faith, so she will not allow anyone to destroy the most precious thing that she and millions of people all over Ukraine have.

"I was baptised in this faith, I grew up in this faith, and now you want to destroy the most precious thing we have? But do not forget that you can close churches, but the faith - it is like an eternal flame that lives inside each of us.”

As reported, an advisor to the Ukrainian President's Office, Oleksiy Arestovych, called the crackdown on the UOC "a primitive political technology of schism".
