Masked activists smash fence of UOC priest's house in Zolochiv
In Zolochiv, the conflict around the private house of a priest of the UOC continues: masked local activists smashed the fence of the UOC priest's house.
On August 6, 2020, masked activists destroyed the fence of the private house of the UOC cleric, Priest Maxim Yoenko, whom the representatives of the UGCC and local authorities unfoundedly accused of illegally building a church in the yard. The priest reported the incident to the UOJ.
According to him, at about 9.30 a.m., 20 masked young men approached the fence and destroyed it with hammers.
The police, who arrived half an hour after the incident, interviewed witnesses.
As reported earlier, the conflict around the private house of the UOC priest began due to the fact that UGCC clerics protested against the construction of a temple of the canonical Church. After that, Fr. Maxim's gate was painted with insults and Nazi symbols, an anti-UOC veche (meeting) was held near his house, he and his family were offered to leave the city, and later the authorities installed a video surveillance camera in the priest's courtyard.
