An Anti-Christian Pogrom is Underway in Ukraine PHOTO


The head of the Russian Church, Patriarch Kiril, has spoken out about the serious material losses inflicted on churches and monasteries of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, which became a last refuge for many thousands of civilians fleeing from Ukrainian Army attacks.  
The Ukrainian army deliberately shelled both Lugansk and Donetsk churches in order to erase them from the face of the Earth.
Patriarch Kiril has raised the alarm regarding the failure of Ukraine's two other major (but much smaller) denominations, the Uniates (also known as Greek Catholics) and the Kiev Patriarchate, to speak out against these attacks. They seem to be taking advantage of the war in order strengthen their positions.
The majority of the soldiers in Ukrainian army come from western and central Ukraine which is dominated by these smaller denominations.  The vast majority in southeast Ukraine and a majority in central Ukraine have belonged to the Moscow Church for over 1000 years.
In two separate letters, dated August 18, 2014, Patriarch Kiril called on the United Nations, the European Council, and the OSCE, to help stop the killings and tortures of the clergy and faithfull, as well as to stop deliberate destruction of the Christian Orthodox churches. He supported his claim with detailed examples and proof.
The Russian Orthodox Church, which is by far the largest denomination in Ukraine, is the leading defender of traditional Christian and family values in the world today, and is being deliberately attacked.
We can only wait to see what response, if any, will follow.
