On November 29, 2022, in Ivano-Frankivsk, near the Church of the Nativity of Christ of the UOC, where the SBU recently conducted a search, a group of people with posters demanded to ban the UOC. It is reported by kurs.if.ua.
Natalya Pertsovich, a deputy of the Ivano-Frankivsk regional council from the “EU”, accused the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of working “against Ukraine”, and also stated that the UOC “subordinates directly to Putin.”
“A lot of evidence was found here that this church is collaborating with Moscow, our enemy. They have a lot of propaganda literature, through which they recruited the local population,” said the EU representative.
