About a hundred people gathered for a rally near the Ukrainian Embassy in the capital of Moldova to support Metropolitan Longin of the UOC.
On December 5, 2023, at 11:00, a rally in support of Metropolitan Longin, accused by authorities of "fanning interreligious strife," began near the Ukrainian Embassy in Chisinau. This information is reported by the UOJ correspondent.
The participants of the rally demand that Ukrainian authorities ensure the freedom of the hierarch of the UOC, who takes care of and educates hundreds of orphaned children in the Bancheny Monastery.
"Dear Vladyka! Orthodox Moldova is with you!"; "Preserve the purity of Orthodoxy"; "We support and defend Metropolitan Longin"; "Do not leave orphans from Ukraine without their father," read the slogans on posters.
