In the Vinnitsa region, SBU officers discovered another representative of the Moscow Patriarchate – a fan of the “Russian world”, who denied Russia’s armed aggression in Ukraine and justified the temporary occupation of part of our country.
According to the Security Service of Ukraine, suspicion was reported to the rector of one of the churches, who on social networks repeated the Kremlin’s narratives about the “civil war” in our state and praised the extortionists of the terrorist organization “DPR” Alexander Zakharchenko, “Givi” and “Motorola”.
“The cleric distributed “author’s” comments in which he tried to discredit the Ukrainian military and insulted the religious feelings of representatives of different faiths. In addition, the archpriest spread anti-Ukrainian propaganda during sermons and communication with church parishioners,” – the message says.
Based on the collected evidence, Security Service investigators informed the cleric of suspicion under two articles of the Criminal Code of Ukraine: Part 2 of Art. 436-2 (justification, recognition as lawful, denial of the armed aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, glorification of its participants); Part 2 Art. 109 (actions aimed at violent change or overthrow of the constitutional order or the seizure of state power).
The defendant was hiding from justice in several regions of Ukraine, but as a result of operational actions, the Security Service established his location and detained him. The cleric is currently in custody.
On the “Operational Armed Forces of Ukraine” channel they write that we are talking about Dmitry Tikhov.
It is alleged that he refused to perform the funeral service for a Ukrainian Armed Forces soldier who fell at the front.
Let us recall that in Kherson the special service exposed the rector of one of the churches of the UOC (MP), who was selling Russian weapons and ammunition

I am currently working as a news website author at Daily News Hack. I mostly cover trending news and have been doing so for quite some time now. I have always had a keen interest in current affairs and the world around me, which is what led me to my current job.
I firmly believe that the best way to learn about something is by doing it yourself and that is why I love my job so much. It allows me to be constantly learning about new things and then sharing that knowledge with others.
I am also a big believer in the power of networking and building relationships. I think that LinkedIn is a great platform for connecting with like-minded people from all over the world.
