  5. In the Volyn region, representatives of the OCU seized the church and evicted the rector from the church house

In the Volyn region, representatives of the OCU seized the church and evicted the rector from the church house

On July 21, 2022, in the village of Kremenets in Volhynia, supporters of Dumenko came to the church house, where the rector of the church of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church lives, demanding that the building be given to the so-called “community that has transferred to the OCU”, writes the UOJ.

On the Day of the Holy Spirit, local supporters of the OCU and the police approached the priest’s house, took away the keys to the temple, guided by the words “this is what the majority wants.” Then the community of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Kremenets decided to hold services in the church house.

When local government representatives and activists again came with the police to demand that the priest leave the house, they brought an extract from the state register.

“I don’t understand how they got a document with the same registration number that is on the documents of our UOC community, all the same words, only instead of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church there is the OCU,” said the rector of the temple.

The priest is sure that the actions of the OCU supporters and the documents provided are illegal, so he and the community intend to go to court to protect their rights.
