The meeting between the head of the US Department of State Anthony Blinken and the leader of the OCU Epiphany Dumenko is a signal to the Ukrainian political elites that we see these as our friends, this is the “right church”, come here if you want to be friends with Washington. On the other hand, it is also a signal to Russia that the United States will continue to support the OCU as opposed to the UOC. Political scientist Ruslan Bortnik said this in a commentary to Klimenko Time.
And the White House will continue the “cold religious war” with the Russian Federation for the minds of the Orthodox, for the minds of Christians. Which is going on today not only in Ukraine, but also in other places. Together with statements regarding security and territorial integrity, the mentioned meeting is a signal to the Russian Federation. Or an increase in rates on the eve of a future meeting between Biden and Putin,” Bortnik said.
