Archbishop of Chernihiv: Probable target of the Russians is the Metropolitan of Kyiv – He is not going to leave Ukraine

A few hours ago, Archbishop of Chernihiv and Nizhyn, Evstratiy Zoria made a particularly alarming post.

In particular, Archbishop Evstratiy of the Autocephalous Church of Ukraine said on his personal Facebook account, “the guards at the Monastery of St. Michael with the Golden Domes neutralized a Russian sabotage group that tried to enter the area”.

He noted: “It is also known by international partners for their lists of terrorist targets compiled by the occupiers: the leaders of Ukrainian society and the state.

These public announcements, as well as information that can not be made public now and received from Ukrainian and international sources, gave reason to believe that one of the targets of Russian terrorism is the Primate of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Metropolitan Epifaniy of Kyiv and All Ukraine)”.

Archbishop Evstratiy stressed that with this reasoning, special security measures have been taken to avoid “irreparable consequences for the local Church and Ukraine at this time of the struggle for freedom if the enemy succeeds in his plan.”

In fact, he clarified that Metropolitan Epifaniy remained in Ukraine, “he has not left and will not leave” while commenting on the rumors to the contrary as absurd.

He added that the Metropolitan of Kyiv has reliable protection, working constantly, communicating with bishops and local clergy, praying.
