Lviv journalist Ostap Drozdov believes that all churches of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate) should be closed, and their priests should be repressed and deported to Russia. The Russophobe TV presenter stated this on the air of his YouTube channel
“The Moscow self-proclaimed sect of Kirill Gundyaev should be included in the list of enemy organizations whose activities are prohibited in Ukraine.
Every Russian priest should be summoned to the SBU and aware that if he continues to practice Orthodox worship, bring ideological literature to Ukraine, carry the Russian World and trouble the people of a foreign country, he will be deported from Ukraine.
I think there are many Lavras in Russia where there is a place for unshaven monks, ”Drozdov said.
