The patriarch was added to a government-backed doxing website after referring to nationalist politicians as enemies of all Slavs. In a tit for tat move, the Ukrainian government has added the patriarch of the Serbian Orthodox Church to its doxing website “Mirotvorets” (“Peacemaker”), labeling him an “enemy of Ukraine.” It seems Ukrainian nationalistic politicians and religious schismatics didn’t appreciate that he referred to them as enemies of all Slavic peoples, as The Duran previously reported. Mirotvorets styles itself the online presence of the Center for Research of Signs of Crimes against the National Security of Ukraine, Peace, Humanity, and the International Law. It proclaims that it provides “information for law enforcement authorities and special services about pro-Russian terrorists, separatists, mercenaries, war criminals, and murderers.” “Anyone who helps the Ukrainian schismatics is an enemy not only of the Russian Church and the Russian world, but also of all Orthodox Slavic nations and the entire Orthodox world,” His Holiness Patriarch Irinej of Serbia declared while receiving an award from the International Public Foundation for the Unity of Orthodox Peoples on May 23 at Moscow’s Christ the Savior Cathedral. The patriarch was referring to President Petro Poroshenko’s recent encroachment into Church life in Ukraine, wherein he appealed to the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Constantinople to grant an independent and canonical status to a new Ukrainian Church that would be an amalgamation of the nation’s two schismatic ecclesial bodies. His appeal was sent with the backing of the Verkhovna Rada and the hierarchs of the unrecognized “Kiev Patriarchate” and “Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church.” The canonical Ukrainian Orthodox Church, a self-governing part of the Russian Orthodox Church, does not back the bid to legitimize the schismatics who are helping to drive violent wedges into Ukrainian society. The “peaceful” nationalists For example, as orthochristian.com reports, the self-proclaimed “Patriarch” Philaret Denisenko of the “Kiev Patriarchate,” the darling of all Ukrainian nationalists, publicly preached in November 2016 that Donbass residents affected by the ongoing conflict there are to blame for their afflictions, due to their “sin of federalization,” and deserve to die: Meanwhile, Metropolitan Vladimir of Pochaev, the abbot of the historic Pochaev Lavra, has been added to Peacemaker as an enemy of Ukraine for calling for believers to “convince not by force of arms, but by the power of words.” “Peacemaker” indeed… Whereas Patriarch Irinej of Serbia was focusing on the unity of the Orthodox faith that itself has been a central point of union between Slavic peoples for over a millennium, the Ukrainian government’s response demonstrates a focus on the Ukrainian nationalistic ideology that, in fact, divides the Ukrainian people from their Slavic brothers, and indeed, from themselves. It is ironic that the government’s site is entitled “Peacemaker,” given that Ukrainian nationalism and the politicians who tout it are often backed by violent terrorist groups such as “C-14” and “The Right Sector,” whose members aren’t afraid to preach their ideology with their fists, or worse. They often turn on their Ukrainian brothers and sisters, attacking the clergy and faithful of the canonical Church, and seizing or destroying their parishes. Governmental ties While the site declares the Mirotvorets Center to be an independent NGO, it isn’t hard to establish the many links. The site was launched in December 2014 by politician and activist George Tuka, as he announced on his Facebook page. Tuka served as the governor of the Luganks Oblast from 2015-2016, and has served as Deputy Minister for the Ukrainian Ministry of Temporarily Occupied Territories and IDPs since April 2016. The Mirotvorets Center is led by Roman Zaitsev, a former employee of the Lugansk branch of the Security Service of Ukraine. Further, the site is curated by the Security Service of Ukraine and promoted by Anton Gerashchenko, an MP and aide to the Interior Minister, according to the International Business Times. Russophobia It is sadly typical that the Serbian patriarch would be lumped in with “pro-Russian terrorists” and deemed a danger to Ukraine’s national security for his views on Ukrainian-nationalism-fueled religion. If you’re not gung-ho about Ukrainian schismatics being legitimized overnight, just so they can be separate from the Russians they so hate, you must be under the evil sway of the evil Kremlin! The Ukrainians can’t see any other way to process the patriarch’s words. They can’t seem to fathom that his focus is on something other—on the unity of the Church and its people. Patriarch Irinej’s entry on Mirotvorets identifies him as an “Anti-Ukrainian propagandist,” and an “adversary of the independence of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church from the Russian-controlled (an aggressor country) Russian Orthodox Church.” He has been given the honor of an entry on the site for “Inciting international and inter-confessional strife.” Also included is his birth name, birthdate, his position as patriarch of the Serbian Church, the date of his election to the primatial throne, and the full text of his offending quote. In a sense, he is lucky—much more sensitive information has been publicized on the site about other people. Mirotvoret’s bloody history Ukrainian author Oles Buzina and former Verkhovna Rada Deputy Oleg Kalashnikov were assassinated just days after the site published their home addresses in April 2015. Site founder Tuka responded, And, as orthochristian.com reports, RT notes that it wasn’t fringe journalists who had their information exposed, but rather, Several of the journalists began receiving threats via phone and email after the site went public with their personal information. Anton Gerashchenko, an MP, aide to the Interior Minister, and high-ranking Mirotvorets supporter has called for the leaking of the personal data of Russian soldiers fighting in Syria so that ISIS could find and kill them. He has also compared modern-day Russia to Nazis and communists, praising the “patriot hackers” for exposing “a powerful propaganda machine that has an impact on par with the propaganda by [Nazi Germany’s] Goebbels or Stalin.” And it all comes full circle when we learn that, in return for demonizing anyone who stands in the way of the illegitimate legitimizing of religious schismatics, Mirotvorets has been given high praise by the likes of “Patriarch” Philaret himself. Congratulating and “blessing” the team behind the site on Counter-Intelligence Day, December 27, 2017, he bestowed a medal “For the sacrifice and love for Ukraine” upon them. It remains to be seen if, how, and when Patriarch Irinej will respond to his inclusion on the doxing website. But then again, it’s hard to imagine that it’s something worth the hierarch’s time. After all, it’s hard to take such things seriously, when you read that Steven Seagal is also considered a threat to Ukrainian national security… http://theduran.com/ukraine-calls-head-of-serbian-church-as-enemy-of-ukraine/
His Eminence Metropolitan Cornelius of Tallinn, the head of the Estonian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate, has reposed in the Lord, Sputnik reports. He was 94 years old. Met. Cornelius (Vyacheslav Vasilievich Jacobs in the world) was born on June 19, 1924 in Tallinn into the family of a Royal Army colonel. He graduated from high school in 1943 and preserved as a chanter in the Church of the Nativity of the Theotokos in the Estonian capital. He was ordained as a deacon on August 19, 1945, and as a priest on February 8, 1948, being appointed as the rector of the Church of St. Mary Magdalene in Haapsalu. He graduated from the Leningrad Theological Seminary by correspondence in 1951. He was arrested by the Vologda Region KGB on February 27, 1957 for “anti-Soviet agitation,” and was sentenced to 10 years in political camps in Mordovia. The sentence was later reduced to 5 years, and on September 7, 1960 he was released early on parole. He returned to Estonia in November 1960 and was appointed as the rector of St. John the Baptist in Tallinn. He was appointed as the bishop of Tallinn and vicar to His Holiness Patriarch Alexei II on July 20, 1990. He was tonsured as a monk at the Pskov Caves Monastery on August 21, 1990 with the name of Cornelius. He was elevated to the rank of archimandrite on September 6 and consecrated as a bishop on September 15 at the St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Tallinn. He thereby became the primate of the Estonian Orthodox Church which was simultaneously granted autonomy by the Moscow Patriarchate. He was elevated to the rank of archbishop in 1995, and to that of metropolitan on November 6, 2000. Before his death he was the oldest bishop of the Russian Orthodox Church. May his memory be eternal! http://orthochristian.com/112373.html
