OCU raiders in Khmelnytskyi prevented UOC metropolitan from entering temple
The UOC hierarch was not allowed into the cathedral, which he built and where he has served for 30 years.
"Look at these photos and understand that the OCU is not the Church and not the faith in God. Many representatives of this organization hardly have an ounce of humanity and conscience. In the first photo, with his back to us, stands the former UOC Metropolitan of Khmelnytskyi Anthony (Fialko). Half-turned to us is the "hierarch" of the OCU Pavlo Yuristy. Metropolitan Anthony asks Pavlo for permission to go to the Intercession Cathedral to pick up some of his belongings. Vladyka Anthony has a container for these things – a cellophane bag. But Pavlo and his supporters will not let Metropolitan Anthony in. They do not let him into the temple which he built, where he has served for 30 years and where he hoped to be buried. But ... the OCG of the OCU came and took away the temple," the statement said.
"Now the representatives of the OCU do not even allow Vladyka Anthony to enter the territory, let alone the temple. Looking at these photos makes one's heart bleed. After all, you can't do this to people, you can't be called Christians after that," the LAVRA Live Telegram channel added.
As reported, a court has found that the person who started the fight in Khmelnytskyi Cathedral is not a military man.
