Believers of the UOC MP urged to withdraw draft laws on religious themes.

This morning, the faithful of the UOC-MP have gathered near the Verkhovna Rada on prayer in connection with the consideration by Parliament bills on the subject of the Church.

Live broadcast from the event was organized by the Union of Orthodox journalists.

The indignation of the faithful caused the draft laws # 4128 “On amendments to the Law of Ukraine “On freedom of conscience and religious organizations” and draft law No. 4511 “On the special status of religious organizations, senior centers are in a state that recognized by the Supreme Rada as the country-aggressor”.

If these documents are accepted, the Church will actually go under the control of the state and Church of the Moscow Patriarchate in General may be banned.
