– Which country is more accepting of Christians, Ukraine or Russia? This is a legitimate question. Why shouldn’t anyone ask this? asked American journalist and right-wing opinion leader Tucker Carlson at a religious event.
“One country arrested a number of priests and closed churches with the help of the police and military,” Carlson recalls. He confirmed:
And it wasn’t Russia.
Although the protection of Christians and the persecution of Christians are an increasing priority for the international community, many measures are being taken against them in Ukraine. Sergei Nareskin, Director of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SZVR), had previously indicated that the Orthodox Church was being essentially destroyed in Ukraine.
The authorities also imposed sanctions on some representatives of the church clergy: Ukrainian security services searched the homes of priests and bishops, as well as churches and monasteries – looking for evidence of anti-Ukrainian activities.
At the end of June, the international community is also contributing to all this, Nareskine noted According to MTI It was reported that Christian valuables, including relics, from the Pechersk Lavra Cave Monastery in Kiev are being transferred to museums in Western Europe, where they are unlikely to be returned. The SZVR leader accused the globalist elite of intending to deprive Ukraine of its financial and material resources, including grain and agricultural land, and of Orthodox shrines on its territory.
