UOC-MP priest convicted for assisting Russian aggressors
SBU materials helped the Novoaidarskyi District Court of Luhansk region to sentence a priest of the UOC-MP to six years imprisonment in absentia.
SBU officers established that in April 2014 the rector of a temple in the Novoaidarskyi district joined the ranks of terrorists. While leading a group of anti-Ukrainian persons, the cleric organized block-post on the highway to Luhansk, impeding movement of Armed Forces of Ukraine to the ATO area.
The court found the accomplice of terrorists guilty in impeding the legitimate activities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other military units.
The sentence came into force.
The sentence would start from the day of his arrest.
The offender was put on ‘wanted’ list.
