At the same time, on the page of the Chernivtsi-Bukovina diocese of the UOC-MP in social networks, they stated that the temple would allegedly be stormed, although at that time there was a coffin with a warrior under the temple. 

The head of the Gorishnesherovets TG, Mikhail Savchishin, said that the priests of the UOC-MP barricaded themselves in the church and did not let anyone in.

  1. I think it’s time to treat these priests as enemy combantants and shoot the motherfuckers.

  2. Ukraine must face reality about their evilness and arrest these mafia members in priest robes and send them straight into mafia land.
