Commenting on the words of the Minister of Culture and Information Policy Oleksandr Tkachenko that for him peace and religious harmony are more important than what can happen as a result of court decisions on the renaming of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, Pravblog writes that if these words were spoken from the lips president or prime minister, they would have a completely different weight. And they would be viewed as a signal that determines the course of power.
“The minister, taking into account the scale of the problem, can hardly be considered a sufficiently weighty figure who is capable of guaranteeing any certain alignments.
Moreover, it should be borne in mind that quite recently Tkachenko, as part of a government delegation, lobbied the interests of the OCU in Georgia.
In light of this, some of his “conciliatory” signals to the UOC look, at least, not very sincere. Or the situation is simply being blabbed so that the canonical Church does not take additional serious steps to protect its rights,” writes the Telegram channel.
