In the Lviv region , representatives of the Moscow Patriarchate left behind “bare walls” in the Drohobych church of Job of Pochaevsky. They cut down the crosses, took away the bells, took out almost everything.

This was reported on the website of the city council of Drohobych.

On May 27, the first joint prayer for Ukraine took place in the Drohobych church of Job of Pochaev. It was conducted in Ukrainian by the clergy of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine. The Church, which was actually subordinate to the MP and the ROC, decided to become subordinate to the Orthodox Church of Ukraine.

Bells disappeared from the territory, and crosses were even cut off from two buildings located on the territory of the church / photo drohobych-rada.gov.ua

When the church decided to move to the OCU, the building and the area around were sealed. However, representatives of the Moscow Patriarchate were probably ready for this. They managed to take out almost everything from the church, leaving behind “bare walls”.

“There are no iconostasis items in the church, the vast majority of icons and church attributes have been taken out. Moreover, according to the parishioners of the temple who previously visited this church, bells disappeared from the territory, and crosses were even cut from two buildings located on the territory of the church,” – reported in the Drohobych city council.

“The leadership of the community fully supported the decision of the community to move from the Moscow Patriarchate to the Orthodox Church of Ukraine. Today, the first service was held here. However, when we went inside, we were shocked, because the church was empty. It can be seen that the “father” was preparing to leave – they took everything , which was purchased at the expense of the community. But we are glad that there is more for one Ukrainian church,” said Andriy Kovch, deputy mayor of Drohobych.

Earlier, UNIAN already reported that in Lutsk, a child in a church prayed that they could not come up with a cure for Putin’s illness.

  1. Putin’s Rascists continue to steal from Ukraine and destroy the culture. This church looks like Russia now that everything Ukrainian was stolen.
    I hope next will be the Pochaev catherdral in Kremenets.
