Pastor of Holy Trinity Church in Noginsk told on what grounds has the Church Kiev Patriarchate in Russia

In Russia, they want to demolish the Ukrainian church

Metropolitan Adrian, Managing Bogorodskoe diocese, rector of Holy Trinity Church in Noginsk in an interview with "Commander" told that even churches, except Holy Trinity Church in Noginsk, are administered Bogorodsk eparchy UOC-KP.

"Four parishes belong to the diocese Bogorodsky but only one small parish buildings and churches. After we threw on the Epiphany Cathedral (from 1989 to 1997 rector of Epiphany Cathedral was Bishop Adrian. In 1997, the Arbitration Court of Moscow region made the decision to transfer the Epiphany Cathedral and facilities on its territory the Moscow diocese. Expel parishioners and employees of the temple came OMON . - "Glaucus"), we went to pray at the address. Soviet Constitution, 17, at Holy Trinity Orthodox church. In 2014, we helped, bought two houses and two plots of land. And with the help of (the name of Bishop Adrian does not name. - "Glaucus") we were able to build a new church,"- said Metropolitan Adrian.

As you know, according to accepted in the laws of the so-called package of spring, the Russian Federation is prohibited govern life in institutions that are not religious. And now that Russia wants to ban the service in the new church, it is likely that Moscow will refer to that "new church was built is not a religious building."

"We are not a political organization, and religious. We are not in the street. We are building, we have land, we have homes, where our office, our dining room and our church. All legally registered as so to take and throw out of Russia? Take a Muslim, Protestant, Catholic churches. They are acting. And we are the worse for them?"- Said the priest.

Just how much by the number of Ukrainian community in Russia Noginsk, rector of Holy Trinity Church said that it is difficult to talk about it.

"Imagine that in such circumstances since 1993 year for over two decades constantly exerted pressure. Our faithful - a congregation of the Epiphany Cathedral. Many of those who went to the cathedral in the early '90s, has died. Children from the cathedral parishioners began to walk our grandchildren started to walk. Others do not go, but the soul of us. Someone else does not go for fear. In our churches hung flyers all the time "do not go to pray dissenters."And they say, whom funeral or baptized, you perehrestyty. But not free, but for money. They (the Moscow Patriarchate) all politics is in material goods,"- he said.

Metropolitan Adrian added that he did not want to think that the temple be demolished. And whether or not this event will push Ukraine into the mirror and answer the demolition of churches of the Moscow Patriarchate.

"If I express this opinion, we will say that Adrian pushes these events. We are all educated people and have logic that all this (as you say) can happen because Ukraine and the Ukrainian people have their own history, culture, their language, their dignity. Ukraine - it is an ancient nation. For what happens: one of everything, while others need to take all that we do not have? So do not be. I do not think the church demolished, I'm do not believe it"- said the rector of the church.

He also believes in a compromise to resolve the situation.

"Future decisions will be made, including the judicial authorities in Russia to be more humane to us more objective, we understand and go forward. I will tell you that twice I was a member of the Moscow Regional Council Noginsk and City Council - in 90 years. I was sent to Patriarch Pimen Noginsk Metropolitan Juvenal to restore Epiphany cathedral, which was destroyed in 30 years. But I just restored cathedral, but also built 10 stone two- and three-storey houses, formed the Orthodox gymnasium, lyceum arts, seminary... Canteens have existed, we have 1,000 people every day to feed and house people were transported hot meals were great utility household. And now little we have. We - the parish peaceful. People know that we are living for the people, for God's sake, for the sake of the Orthodox faith"- summed Metropolitan Adrian. In Ukrainian/український
