      Voice of Moscow patriarchate threatens Ukraine with Russian force

      RUSSIAN CHURCH THINKS RUSSIA SHOULD INTERVENE IN UKRAINE AND SAVE IT

      Interfax-Religiia, 28January 2014

       

      The countries of the Russian World should have influence in the most active form on what is happening today in Ukraine, declared the head of the synod's Department for Relations of Church and Society, Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin. "A small group of people, guided by views that are false from both a theological and a social point of view, are doing what a large nation should not permit itself to do, to use force against the historic choice and will of the whole nation," Fr. Vsevolod declared Tuesday at the Christmas Parliament Meetings in the Federation Council.

       

      In his opinion, the nations that are linked together by the historic choice made by the holy Prince Vladimir in the "Kiev baptismal font" should help those "who are experiencing a crisis of freedom in the fact of the invasion by a new 'horde.'"

       

      "It is unambiguously clear that Ukraine's future today will not be determined without the participation of outside forces. It is obvious that it will not turn out to be limited to internal, national processes. That means, there will be intervention by one or another.  That means, there will possibly be intervention by those forces that would not want for Ukraine to remain a part of the Eastern Christian civilization," the priest declared.

       

      He is sure that it is possible to overcome what is happening "only through the participation in the fate of the people of Ukraine by the whole civilization joined together by a common history."

       

      "And it is necessary to participate without paying attention to any new 'horde' and I am not thinking about what they will say to us or about us, even in the prelude to the events that are most significant for us that will occur in Sochi," the representative of the church summed up.
