Liudmyla Filipovych urged to send to the trenches all the UOC priests and MPs who proposed to send the bill on the UOC ban to the Venice Commission.

Member of the State Ethnopolitics Commission Liudmyla Filipovych urged to send to the front all the priests of the UOC and MPs who proposed to send the bill on the UOC ban to the Venice Commission for examination, reports the resource "Apostrophe".

The religion expert noted that the bill on the UOC ban corresponds to today's life realities, even though it may contradict "the laws of 1991".

"This is not about freedom of conscience but about our independence, about the very existence of Ukraine. These deputies and priests should go to the front, to the trenches. The hat burns on the thief. For some reason, the bill does not cause any concern among Greek Catholics, Roman Catholics or Pentecostals. Only the UOC," she said.

Earlier, the MPs urged the Verkhovna Rda Speaker Ruslan Stefanchuk to appeal to the Venice Commission because of the UOC ban.

As reported, the head of the Servant of the People faction said that Ukraine needed the Venice Commission to examine the draft law on banning the UOC in order to join the EU.
