The scandalous Metropolitan Pavlo of the UOC MP appealed to President Volodymyr Zelenskyi and said that "God will not forgive" the head of state for evicting the Moscow Patriarchate from the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra.
Metropolitan Pavlo said this in a video message.
"I tell you, Mr. President, and all your flock, that our tears will not fall on the ground. They will all fall on your head! Today you think that having come to power on our backs, you can do this to us? God will not forgive no you, nor your family. Because 220 brothers have been thrown out into the street by you," said the metropolitan, who is jokingly called "Pasha-Mercedes" on the Internet because of his favorite brand of luxury cars.
He also reprimanded Zelensky that he was supposed to receive Metropolitan Onufriv and members of the synod when they came to the President's Office without warning.
Pavlo did not miss Culture Minister Oleksandr Tkachenko.
According to the scandalous hierarch, Tkachenko is "obsessed with violence, malice, hatred and diabolical derangement."
"Woe to you. Be afraid," Metropolitan Pavlo concluded his address to the president.
He also warned the Ministry of Culture that the monks of the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra allegedly "do not intend to leave the monastery without a corresponding court decision and the provision of the approved composition of the commission on accepting and transferring property to a state institution."
"We were offered a "compromise": Blessed Onuphrius, the seminary, and I are leaving the Lavra. I said that they don't come down from the cross, they take it down from the cross. We don't need such "compromises". They want to take our Lavra, Pochaivska, and move on." to nunneries," concluded Pavlo.
We will remind that by March 29, the priests of the UOC of the Moscow Patriarchate had to vacate all the buildings of the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra and hand over the property to the state.
However, today MP believers gathered again in the Lavra.
A group of supporters of the Moscow Patriarchate even staged a loud dispute (video).
One of the monks of the UOC MP told journalists that "he will not leave because he came here to die."
Another, commenting on the events of 2014, said that "Donbas rebelled" and "Ukrainians were the first to shoot."
Meanwhile, Archimandrite Avraamiy (Latish), the first monk of the UOC MP in the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra, transferred to the OCU.
It was written on social networks that about 80 monks want to follow his example, but Pavlo and his supporters intimidate and put pressure on them.
Metropolitan Epiphanius entrusted Archimandrite Avraamiy to perform the duties of the Vicar of the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra as part of the OCU.
In response, Onuphrius became angry with Abraham and accused him of "dodging schism."
