Chernivtsi bloggers posted a video about drunk novices from the OCU monastery in Staraya Zhadova who were collecting donations. The incident was commented by the Chernivtsi-Bukovina diocese of the UOC.
“The church clothes (chasubles) in which they are dressed are not at all from the same set. Several questions arise. Where did they get the chasubles? Or were they church thieves, or did one of the dishonest clergymen give them, or is there really a monastery in Staraya Zhadova?
It turns out that in the village of Staraya Zhadova in our region, a monastery of the Kitsman diocese of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine (OCU) is still being built. In the state register, the head of this organization, oddly enough, is a person named Ivan Konstantinovich.
Poor Old Zhadova. This disaster is still missing,” the diocese wrote.
