The most active participant in the attack on the procession of the UOC in Nizhyn is a man caught in the frame with goat’s hooves. As the media found out, this is an activist Stanislav Proshchenko, who helped the OCU to seize several churches of the UOC in this region.
In 2019, he was one of the organizers of the illegal transfer of the UOC church to the OCU in Kruty. At the same time, he participates in the organization of an illegal meeting for the transition to the OCU in Parafiyevka: he blocked the access to the village club for the believers of the UOC, where the future of the temple was decided. In 2020, Proshchenko with other mercenaries participates in the seizure of a church in the village of Bilovezhi, restored by the forces of the UOC. In 2021, Proshchenko was already among the invaders of the UOC church in the village of Priputni.
Soon he was already filming the “divine service” of Yevstratiy Zorya in the captured church. In a word, it was not an unknown patriot who organized the provocation in Nizhyn. This is a person who is professionally engaged in the seizure of churches for the OCU in the Nizhyn region.
As previously reported, the speaker of the OCU “archbishop” Yevstratiy Zorya, in comments to foreign media, said that his structure had nothing to do with the attack on the procession, openly lying.
