Ukraine discussing the upcoming exchange of prisoners of war in the East. The idea of the leader of the public movement «the Ukrainian choice — the right of the people» Victor Medvedchuk was supported by Vladimir Putin. In this regard, once again talking about the role of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate in the conflict. However, if a month ago «moskalsky Church» openly accused of treason to the state interests, now it is seen as a Savior of several hundred people, languishing in captivity. How long is the enlightenment of the authorities — versed RIA Novosti.

In recent days Ukrainian security services not know. The SBU has officially appealed to someone a couple of years ago was accused of «blessing the occupation of the Crimea», — the Patriarch Kirill.

«We believe that the accession of the head of the Russian Orthodox Church Kirill to the joint efforts of the leaders of all world religions in the framework of the initiative of the Ukrainian Council of churches and religious organizations contribute to the early return home of each of the hostages,» the statement reads red-tape-monger.
We are talking about the treatment of «foreign inter-Church associations and some religious leaders», made on 2 November. In it the representatives of 17 religious organizations asked to release «illegally detained» in the East of Ukraine and in Russia of the hostages. With the same proclamation of the Ukrainian clergy were a year ago, however, to no avail.

Interestingly, a few days before the publication of appeal to Patriarch Kirill, the head of the security service of Ukraine Vasily Gritsak has met the «Patriarch» Filaret, created in the early 90s schismatic «Kiev Patriarchate», which now fully supports the Ukrainian government. But somehow Filaret on assistance in the release of prisoners was not asked. However, this is the explanation.

As a result, Ukrainian chaplains become almost the principal agents of the «national idea», constantly calling on citizens to stand up for protection against «Russian aggression». And now, the official Kyiv is simply not able to keep their militaristic impulse. It seems that President Poroshenko has made new enemies among their own, seemed passionately loyal supporters.

Eminent chaplain of the «Kiev Patriarchate» Andrey Chmil ‘ was stirred up by their colleagues and the public accusations against the authorities. They say, they do not want to bring «Russian-Ukrainian» war to its victorious conclusion.

«We like those guard dogs that the evil owner put on a short chain, put on the muzzle and even bound my feet: we see thieves, we see their crimes, hear the cries of the victims, but can not do anything but to tear and growl,» said Chmel on his page in Facebook.

The chaplain did not fail to call those responsible for the many losses of the APU. «I warn Poroshenko, the current President of Ukraine, that now he is going to hell because of the sabotage of the Russian-Ukrainian war. The same applies to Turchinov, Yatsenyuk and Avakov,» threatened the priest.

Only with the mediation of the UOC-MP has been released about 15 prisoners. The last known cases in December last year, when home was able to return the citizen of Lviv Taras Kolodiy. To this end, Ukraine was called «the last cyborg in captivity by the separatists.» And one of the negotiators between the parties was the Patriarch.

At this time we are talking about the release of the 87 people from the unrecognized republics and 309 — on the Ukrainian side. And all thanks to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, whose parishes are on either side of the front.

Obviously, the «Kiev Patriarchate» is not trying to take away from the Moscow Patriarchate to the laurels of the peacemaker, as in the uncontrolled territories of Kiev is not even in his hierarchy, the political scientist Vitaly Leibin.

«But you can expect aggressive attacks in the address of the UOC-MP,» he adds.

Apparently, the «Patriarch» Filaret and his supporters finally found their niche: to be the mouthpieces of «victorious war», even if the President himself is against. Otherwise, «it will ad» directly under the Windows of the residence.
