Them the duration is also different. For part of the sanctions list, it will be 5 years, for part of the sanctions will be in effect for 30 years.

Scandalous statements of the ROC

  • The fact that there is little in common with holiness in the ROC, once again once proved the representative of the same church. Her ex-deacon came up with an imaginary wife and created a Telegram channel on her behalf. From her account, he calls for the rape of Ukrainian women.
  • In early 2023, the Russian Orthodox Church announced that it wanted to send more clergy to Ukraine. According to the ROC, those priests who are now at war against Ukraine are few.
  • Representatives of the ROC are also acting against their own people. So, the priest of this church called on Russians to die with weapons in their hands in the war in Ukraine, and not “under the table in their own vomit.”
