Metropolitan Neophytos of Morphou told Cypriots about what is happening to the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra.

Metropolitan Neophytos of Morphou (the Orthodox Church of Cyprus) told the faithful of his diocese about the situation around the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra.

During his conversation with the faithful of the Cypriot Church, Metropolitan Neophytos told them that "at this moment, as we speak to you, the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra is in danger".

He reminded the audience that the Lavra has "many relics, including those of St Eumenius, with whom we served there. St Eumenius the elder served there, and I was still a deacon at the time."

"There are 140 holy relics in the Lavra. You don't have time to cross yourself. Many relics are in the catacombs where it all began a thousand years ago, where Slavic Orthodoxy begins, with St. Theodosius and St. Anthony. And now this satanist Zelensky comes there, and what does he say? Let the 200 monks of the Lavra leave, and the Ministry of Culture will take over this place, and we will make this place touristy, so that everything there will be filled with tourists," said Metropolitan Neophytos.

As earlier reported, the SOC bishop said that the Ukrainian authorities are persecuting the UOC and violating human rights.
