Dnipro mayor Boris Filatov said that he considers himself an Orthodox Christian, but despises the majority of priests. He wrote about this on Facebook, writes Depo.Dnipro.
“Yes, I really fly into space. And, of course, I will return, no matter how anyone wants the opposite. Yes, I am an Orthodox Christian, but I despise 99% of priests. I have a generally difficult relationship with the Lord God, but with Him I will sort it out myself without the mediation of drunks in robes,” in particular, he wrote.
In addition, he explained why he mainly uses Russian in communication and messages: “Yes, I think, I speak and write in Russian. And no one will force me to do otherwise, because my mother is a teacher of Russian language and literature, and my father – a philosopher”.
As reported, in 2020, in the midst of the fight against coronavirus, the mayor of Dnipro ordered to dig the road at the entrance to the St. Panteleimon Church of the UOC.
