Two Orthodox churches seized in west Ukraine


Moscow,  - Two churches of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church have been seized in the villages of Badovka and Pticha in Ukraine's Rovno region, the UOC said on its website.

In Pticha, "Right Sector" militants of stocky build chiseled out door locks and broke into the church," the statement said. The takeover was initiated by Igor Zagrebelny, the self-proclaimed Kiev Patriarchate's archpriest in the Dubno district, according to the statement.

The document contains no description of circumstances surrounding the seizure of the church in Badovka.

Around the same time, there was "an attempt by schismatics to seize a church" in the village of Povcha in the Rovno region, but "despite the forceful pressure, the parishioners were able to defend their church," the situation there is escalating, the UOC said.

It was reported earlier that six churches of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in the Rovno region (the villages of Kamenka, Krutaya Sloboda, Osnitsk, Kurgany, Strelsk and Mirnoye) have been seized over the past two weeks.
