“Religious scholar” Andrei Kovalev decided to “enlighten” his readers and said that the winner of the “Voice of the country” show, priest of the Borispol diocese of the UOC, Archpriest Alexander Klimenko, is actually not only a “singer” but also a “professional agent”. He wrote about this on Facebook.
“Singer Alexander Klimenko, who calls himself a priest of the Moscow Patriarchate, just belongs to the camp of “Ukrainian-speaking meek special forces” of the Russian Orthodox Church in Ukraine, but he still remains a fierce Ukrainophobe and Russian patriot. This is a very dangerous and professional agent who uses his fame after winning the television show “Voice of the Country” to promote the deadly ideology of “Russiam world”, “wrote the “religious scholar.”
