OCU sees threat to national security over UOC churches near Belarus
"Metropolitan" Michael Zinkevych of the OCU said to “Suspilne” that he sees a threat to Ukraine's security due to UOC temples in Volyn that have not moved to the OCU. He mentioned that 150 communities in Volyn have "transferred" to the OCU, while 400 have not.
According to Zinkevych, most of these temples are located near the border with Belarus, which has led to an "immediate threat" hanging over the country. The "Metropolitan" is convinced that because of these temples, the central authorities should ban the UOC.
As earlier reported, in Zinkevych's opinion, there is a need to ban the physical existence of the UOC.
