There is a “bad karma” in the Ukrainian Parliament, where everything needs to be “sprinkled with holy water,” says deputy Nikolai Tishchenko.

People's deputy from the “Servant of the People” faction Nikolai Tishchenko suggested that the Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, Dmitry Razumkov, call an Orthodox priest to the Parliament, "so that the spirit of our predecessors would go somewhere". He said this on the air of the “Nash” TV channel on Friday, November 6.

“Frankly speaking, the atmosphere in the Parliament is very tense and it is very difficult to work,” said the people's deputy. “Because for 30 years, there has been a bad karma in it. Even today I suggested that Dmitry Razumkov bring an Orthodox priest to the Parliament to sprinkle it with holy water so that the spirit of our predecessors will go somewhere."

When asked by the presenter whether the people's deputies would be ready to go to confession after that and “tell all their sins”, Tishchenko said that “we go, we are Ukrainians, we are Orthodox but there is not always anything to tell about. First, we confess to our wife, then to our family, then to our friends – well, like everyone else.”

As reported earlier, after the article "Pochaev Lavra – an outpost of the ‘Russian world’" in the edition of the Verkhovna Rada, a criminal case was opened.
