The enemy has a shortage of puppet clergymen in the temporarily occupied territories and is taking steps to overcome it.
Thus, at the synod of the Kremlin-controlled Russian Orthodox Church, it was decided to create an “inter-diocesan training center for specialists of the Luhansk diocese” in the Luhansk region. Its activities will be supervised by Metropolitan Panteleimon (Vasyl Povorozniuk) of Luhansk and Alchevsk of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Moscow Patriarchate.
The training of future manual priests will be provided by the “Sretenskaya Theological Academy of the Russian Orthodox Church”, which sends its employees to the occupied lands of the Luhansk region.
In the meantime, in the absence of personnel, the Russians send priests from Russia to serve in the TOT. In particular, representatives of the Russian Orthodox Church hold positions in the seized churches of the OCU (Orthodox Church of Ukraine).
The National Resistance Centre emphasizes that all occupiers will be punished for their crimes against the Ukrainian people, regardless of whether they wear a suit, cassock or military uniform.
