Supporters of the OCU with machine guns in their hands tried to seize the Holy Protection Church in Trebukhiv.

The video of armed supporters of the OCU storming the Holy Protection Church in the village of Trebukhiv, Kyiv region, was published on YouTube by "1 Kozaktv".

The footage shows one of the OCU activists with a machine gun in his hands bursting into the church and trying to force the rector, Archpriest Mykhailo Pavliuk, to leave the shrine.

In the comments, people condemned such behaviour of the OCU representatives and supported the rector of the Protection Church:

"Some kind of madness. War in the country, what are they doing?", wondered Eugenia Paliy.

"May God protect and reason with people who yield to Satan. Save and preserve our Orthodox faith," writes Liudmyla Railian.

"There are no words for what they are doing. Ukrainians against Ukrainians. Lord, have mercy on us sinners," Galina Kostenko noted.

It should be noted that supporters of the OCU tried to seize the Protection Church in the village of Trebukhiv back on February 7, 2023. At that time, people in camouflage uniforms broke the ancient locks and damaged the church doors.

As reported, the web showed the doors of a church in Trebukhiv hacked open by supporters of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine.
