Archbishop Pavel Does Not Suspect Anyone of Poisoning Him
10 Jule 2012
According to a report of Segodnia, quicksilver and arsenic were detected
in the blood of the Superior of the Kyiv Cave Monastery and a deputy of
the Kyiv City Council representing the Party of Regions, Archbishop
Pavel (Lebed) of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Moscow Patriarchate.
“Some time ago, Bishop Pavel found himself in the intensive care. Then,
he underwent treatment in Germany, where they detected quicksilver and
arsenic in his blood, substances used for poisoning people in higher
circles in the Middle Ages. The Bishop himself does not accuse anyone.
He has just returned to Kyiv and, perhaps, we will report to the
police,” said Vasyl Anisimov to the newspaper’s correspondent.
According to Church lobby interviews, there are people who wish
Archbishop Pavel ill as there are many aspirants to his position
associated with an honorary status and big money.
On 10 July, RISU’s Ukrainian-language web page posted Archbishop Pavel’s
commentary, according to which he has no enemies and does not suspect
any attempt on his life.
