Review of an inopressa. Ukraine is in dangerous proximity to religious war


Political collision of Russia and Ukraine led to spiritual split. The Ukrainian part of Church is on the verge of a separation from the "Russian supervisor", the observer of Bloomberg Head of Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kiev patriarchy Filaret writes. Photo: Pyotr of Sivkov/TASS Ukraine is in dangerous proximity to religious war, the observer of Bloomberg Sergey Chapnin believes. According to him, political and military collision of Russia and Ukraine led to split at the spiritual level: the Ukrainian part of Orthodox church is on the verge of a separation from the "Russian supervisor" — a step which will undermine the central role of Moscow in east Christianity. There is a real danger that split can lead to bloodshed. The patriarch Constantinople Varfolomey will provide autocephaly of the Ukrainian church, the edition is sure. At the same time weakening of the Russian church would strengthen influence of Varfolomey who seeks for rapprochement with the western Christianity. What is even more important, this further weakening of the concept of "the Russian world" called by the author neoimperialistic ideology which the Russian leader Vladimir Putin and the patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Kirill use for counteraction to the West. For Kirill personally it would be political defeat. To avoid escalation, heads of Russia and Ukraine have to show wisdom and restraint. First, the patriarch Kirill has to recognize the application of Ukraine for autocephaly. Secondly, all parties have to abstain from manifestation of hatred and any claims of violence. Thirdly, the government of Ukraine declaring respect for the choice of citizens has to refuse any pressure upon believers. For this purpose he should agree with establishment of the international control, the author advises. *** In the capital of Austria set restriction of blood alcohol content for owners of potentially dangerous dogs, reports the Italian daily log of La Stampa.
