“From the beginning of 2019 can’t get to the territory, here I stand at the fence, as you can see, left without a temple,” said the priest.
Meanwhile, the press Secretary of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine in Odessa region father Theodore Orobets reported earlier, in Odessa there are believers who want to secede from the jurisdiction of the Moscow Patriarchate. However, the local priest does not just prevent the will of the citizens of Odessa, but also took from the temple’s main icon.
