Two days collected 300 thousand signatures against the resonance of Church laws.

Near the Verkhovna Rada on Thursday, may 18, there will be a prayer service with the aim to urge MPs not to pass the bills No. 4511 4128 and regulating state-Church relations in Ukraine. About this informed the head of the Synodal information Department of the UOC Bishop Clement (the last Supper).

In his opinion, both of these bill are absolutely repressive. “No prior discussion of the bills was not. Today we are witnesses that on the anniversary of the centenary of the beginning of anti-religious repression by the state trying to pass laws that, in fact, absolutely repressive. Repression of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church is not only discrimination against some institution, some companies. UOC – the millions of Ukrainians”, – quotes the Bishop of Rome the information Center of the UOC.

According to him, already in many areas collecting signatures, appeal to the deputies with a call will not allow the adoption of these bills. “Two days it is collected about 300 thousand signatures to transfer them to the deputies of the Verkhovna Rada. Perhaps this will be the factor that will force MPs to listen to their constituents,” said the Bishop.
