Ukrainian courts have already handed down seven verdicts against UOC (MP) clerics who sided with the enemy, and Ukraine exchanged one priest for 28 Ukrainian soldiers, said Vasyl Malyuk, head of Ukraine’s security service.
In an interview with the Interfax-Ukraine agency, Malyuk said that counterintelligence operations at the UOC (MP) were launched last year. “As a result, criminal cases have been opened against 61 clerics. In total, the courts have already issued seven verdicts against individual clerics who sided with the enemy,” he said.
At the same time, Maliuk insisted that two priests of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (MP) were transferred by exchange. “I want to emphasize that the enemy really appreciates its agents in Kazakhs – yes, such a person was exchanged for 28 Ukrainian servicemen,” Maliuk said.
He also said that according to the materials of the SBU, the citizenship of Ukraine was terminated for 19 priests of the UOC (MP).
“I already said – the presence of a Cossack and incense is not a bad situation, but it does not exempt from criminal responsibility. And it does not give any forgiveness. We work exclusively within the framework of the law. Church rank,” the head of the SBU concluded.
