On the territory of the Lavra, supporters of the Moscow Patriarchate distribute leaflets with a text about the alleged "illegality" of the decision to evict the monks.

This was reported by the correspondent of TSN.ua.

A text is printed on ordinary sheets in which supporters of the Moscow Patriarchate allegedly prove that the eviction is illegal.

He said, "unilateral refusal of the lease agreement is not allowed."

The Moscow monks claim that the lease agreement can be terminated only by a court decision.

We will remind you that the UOC-MP should have finally left the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra

by March 29  .

 After the termination of the contract for the lease of its territory, the Lavra of the UOC MP had 20 days to evict.

The day before,

 believers of the Moscow church gathered for prayer. 

There were also a lot of priests and monks on the territory.

They came from all over Ukraine. 

Towards the evening, 

part of the monastery's brothers decided to join the Orthodox Church of Ukraine


Metropolitan Epiphanius of Kyiv and All Ukraine accepted the monks under his care.

In turn, the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr 

Zelenskyi, commented on the decision to terminate the contract with the UOC MP


The head of state announced that Ukraine is taking another step to strengthen its spiritual independence.

Instead, the scandalous Metropolitan

 Pavlo turned to the president and declared that "God will not forgive" the head of state for evicting

 the Moscow Patriarchate from the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra.

He also reprimanded Zelensky that he was supposed to receive Metropolitan Onufriy and members of the synod when they came to the President's Office without warning.

Already today, March 30, about 200 supporters of the Moscow Church in Ukraine gathered again near the Lavra.

The territory of the monastery is to be inspected by the commission of the Ministry of Culture, however, it seems that people are hostile towards it.

In particular, the faithful barricaded the entrances to the temples with human shields.
