Elimination of Zakharchenko: Russia pointed to the Kremlin's hand

on Mon Sep 10, 2018 9:21 am
Elimination of Zakharchenko: Russia pointed to the Kremlin's hand

After the Russian mass media began to expose the divider of the liquidated Alexander Zakharchenko , Alexander Timofeev, it became clear that the Kremlin stands behind the elimination of the leader of the DPR.

This was written on his Facebook page by a Russian sociologist Igor Eidman.

"There was no time to cool down the body of Zakharchenko, and the Russian media have already begun to expose his immediate mother-in-law, Timofeev," Tashkent. "The last doubts disappeared because Zakharchenko was killed on the instructions of his Kremlin-employer supervisors, and they were scheduled to be"Tashkent" crash, but that miracle survived,"- wrote Eidman.
He noted that a similar story happened with the so-called LNR.

"There, some Plotnytsky was displaced by force and now sits in Russia under investigation." The LNR almost did not reach an open clash and an internecine war. "It seems that the situation in the DPR did not repeat itself, the lost trust of the spectator simply killed," Eidman says.

He emphasizes that the reason in both cases is one - "small gangsters are not ranked".

"The charges are standard: squeezing property, business trickling, robbery from the budget. In general, all the things that Putin's brother is engaged in on an incomparably larger scale, and the methods are similar: murder, torture, jail for uncontrollable", - said the sociologist.

Russian Orthodox Church Threatens Retaliation Against Istanbul-Based Patriarch if it allows Ukraine to cut its spiritual ties with Moscow

Russian Orthodox Church Threatens Retaliation Against Istanbul-Based Patriarch if it allows Ukraine to cut its spiritual ties with Moscow

The Russian Orthodox Church has threatened to retaliate against its Istanbul-based rival if it allows Ukraine to cut its spiritual ties with Moscow and thereby end Russian religious rule in the country.

Metropolitan Hilarion, head of the Russian Orthodox Church's External Relations Department, said on September 8 that if the patriarch of Kyiv was recognized, "we will have no choice but to sever relations with Constantinople."

Hilarion also accused Istanbul-based Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople of acting in a "despicable and treacherous way."

Bartholomew, known as the "first among equals" of Orthodox Christian leaders in the world, is expected to rule in the coming months on an appeal from Ukraine to break away from Moscow and create an independent church.

The Russian Orthodox Church is especially upset with a decision on September 7 by Bartholomew to send two envoys to Ukraine as a step toward declaring ecclesiastical independence for the church there.

The Istanbul-based Patriarchate said it will send two bishops to Ukraine "within the framework of the preparations for the granting of autocephaly to the Orthodox Church in Ukraine," strongly suggesting it had already decided to grant independence to the Orthodox Church in Ukraine.

"When one brazenly and cynically interferes in the affairs of a local Orthodox Church, one creates not only a hopeless situation, but threatens the global Orthodox world with a schism," Russian news agencies quoted Hilarion as saying.

Bartholomew's rival in Russia, Patriarch Kirill, has called the prospect of the Ukrainian church being separated from Moscow an "all-Orthodox catastrophe."

The Russian church claims authority over the church in Ukraine. But many Ukrainian parishes reject the Moscow Patriarchate and have formed a separate church that is pushing for recognition as a self-governing, or autocephalous, institution.

The Orthodox Church in Ukraine is therefore split between a branch whose clerics pledge loyalty to Moscow and one that is overseen by the unrecognized Kyiv-based Patriarch Filaret.

While Constantinople is the oldest Orthodox Church, Moscow is currently the most powerful, with the largest number of worshippers...........
