ATMariupol A delegation of the Moscow Patriarchate came “with an inspection”, the collaborators were instructed to increase the number of prayers “in defense of the Russian army.”
Petr Andryushchenko, an adviser to the mayor of Mariupol, wrote about this in his Telegram channel.
“Mariupol. Religion in the service of the occupiers. Yesterday a large delegation of the Moscow Patriarchate arrived in the city with an inspection. A large cortege of priests and military guards. They were taken to the churches (which were almost not affected, it’s clear why),” he said.
In addition, Andryushchenko added, a separate non-public excursion to the drama theater took place.
“Instructions were issued to collaborators – to restore churches in the first place. To increase the number of prayers in defense of the Russian army. To local priests – to increase propaganda through prayers for the innocently killed,” the mayor’s adviser said.
They also discussed the future fate of the church of Peter the Grave, which can be demolished or remade “under the canons of the Russian Orthodox Church.”
“The Moscow Patriarchate continues to work as a full-fledged FSB. So maybe it’s time to finally send him for the Opposition Platform for Life and a warship officially?” Andryushchenko wrote.
Earlier it was reported that the Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Kirill supported Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.
