      It is reported that the Security Council ordered a probe into the existence of legal grounds and compliance with the conditions for using the properties located on the territory of the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra monastery

      KIEV, December 2. /TASS/. Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky has said that the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) decided to launch a crackdown against the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (UOC). Among other things the executive body issued instructions to submit a bill to parliament banning “religious organizations affiliated with Russia’s centers of influence” and to intensify measures to combat Russian “intelligence agents” in the Ukrainian church.

      The National Security and Defense Council instructed the government to submit to the Verkhovna Rada “a bill on the impossibility of activities in Ukraine of any religious organizations affiliated with centers of influence in the Russian Federation.”

      The State Service for Ethnicpolitics and Freedom of Conscience was instructed to conduct a theological examination of the Charter governing the Ukrainian Orthodox Church for signs of ecclesiastical and canonical links with the Moscow Patriarchate.

      I’m not terribly familiar with the Orthodox church, but it seems unlikely to me that it would be a place to plan… Idk, dissent?  Rebellion?  Terrorism?  What are they calling it, exactly?

      I have always been of the opinion that government and religion should leave each other the fuck alone.  Did we really learn nothing from the crusades, the inquisitions?  The systematic obliteration of who knows how many ancient religions and their followers?

      Apparently not.  Apparently, even the Nazis weren’t enough to demonstrate that we should leave it the fuck alone.

      This is depressing.

      They believe in something bigger than Nazis, and Nazis don’t like that.
