Sadovoy: Hands off our Tomos!
Lviv City Hall appealed to the leadership of the state and law enforcement agencies regarding the statement of Mikhail Dobkin to the SBI in the case of Tomos.
Tomos is our history and an indisputable fact, therefore, the leadership of Ukraine and law enforcement agencies must “reject all evil spirits” which will be “slid” into their hands. The mayor of Lviv, Andrei Sadovoy, said it on June 19, 2020, during a meeting of the session of the Lviv City Council, commenting on the statement made by former MP Mikhail Dobkin against Petro Poroshenko for "exacerbating religious hatred".
“Yesterday, there was a discussion on the Tomos in the information field,” Sadovoy said. “To be honest, I did not understand what was happening, but when I read Dobkin’s appeal, which he wrote to the SBI to institute criminal proceedings, because he resents this and some other things, I think that the deputies of the City Council, regardless of confession and religion, must give a clear position: hands off the Tomos!”
According to him, Tomos is “our story, a fact not to be denied, just as the independence of our state cannot be denied.”
“We appeal to the leadership of the state and representatives of law enforcement agencies so that they maintain wisdom, tolerance, do not succumb to provocations and reject all evil spirits which will be slid into their hands regarding our Tomos,” the Lviv mayor stressed.
"The Greek Catholic decided to instruct the ‘Gentiles’!" former MP of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Mikhail Dobkin in his Telegram channel responded to the above words.
As reported by the UOJ, on June 18, Petro Poroshenko stated that a criminal case had been opened against him because of the Tomos for the OCU. This statement was refuted by the UOC-KP, which calrified that the ex-president was given a suspicion in the case of the "raiding of the Kyiv Patriarchate", which was opened at the suit of the UOC-KP community of the church of the Nativity of Christ in Odessa.
