MP: Law against UOC will cause conflicts, but we never mind
The MP expressed hope that already this spring the law banning the UOC will be adopted and it will come into force.
In a commentary to zahid.espreso.tv, Solomiya Bobrovska, an MP from the “Holos” party in Ukraine, said that the adoption of the law on the UOC ban would cause conflicts, but there is no need to pay attention to it.
According to her, after the adoption of the law, the transition of UOC parishes (to the OCU – Ed.) in the Rivne region will be one of the most difficult, potential domestic conflicts cannot be avoided, but it should be taken into account after a year of full-scale war.
Bobrovska expressed hope that as early as this spring the law banning the UOC will be adopted and will come into force.
"I am convinced that there will be a very large number of amendments between the first and the second readings. Someone will consider this bill too soft, someone too harsh, no one cancelled the lobbyists of the ROC in the Verkhovna Rada. Now it is difficult for me to say about the bill itself, we will definitely finalize it not just about the formal non-subordination to Moscow but about the formal and informal existence of the ROC in Ukraine. Let's be frank, this (the UOC – Ed.) is an agent network of the RF," the MP noted.
The MP added that the "transfer" of the UOC's parishes in the Rivne region will be one of the most difficult in Ukraine. Since the beginning of the year, there have been almost half a thousand UOC parishes in the Rivne region, only 38 joined the OCU last year.
As earlier reported, the Cabinet of Ministers introduced a bill to ban denominations affiliated with the Russian Federation.
