The seizure of St. George’s Church of the UOC-MP (Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate) in the Ivano-Frankivsk region (Western Ukraine) are planning to implement with the support of the nationalists on Sunday, said the outreach Department of the UOC, citing information from the region.

«On Sunday, November 22, 2017 in the village of Ostrowiec Horodenkivsky district, Ivano-Frankivsk region with the support of armed nationalist groups «the priests of the Kiev Patriarchate» are preparing a violent seizure of Orthodox St. George’s Church. Local residents are asking for prayer support», — stated in the message.

As noted, the parishioners appealed for protection to the local authorities and law enforcement officers, but received no response.

Ukraine currently operates the canonical Ukrainian Orthodox Church, which is a self-governing Church of the Moscow Patriarchate, and unrecognized by the world Orthodox Church structures — the Kyiv Patriarchate (UOC KP) and Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church (UAOC).

While the UOC-MP has repeatedly reported on cases of harassment of priests and seizures of the Orthodox churches representatives of the UOC-KP.
