Russian pranker called the Primate of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine Metropolitan of Kyiv Epiphany. About this on his page in Facebook reported the press service of the ptsu.

The press service noted that Metropolitan Epiphanios receives a lot of congratulations, including on the phone, and have used the Pro-Kremlin media.

“December 21, the call was carried out on behalf of David McAllister, Chairman of the foreign Affairs Committee of the European Parliament.

Metropolitan Epiphanios answered that the Ukrainian Church is strongly against violence and hatred, is open to dialogue. Especially “capture the laurels” can not be in principle, but such conversations are designed to sow tension in the society. The head of the DNC reminded that the Church is against same-sex relationships “biblical position” – that is considered a sin and does not interfere in political processes.

“During the conversation the Metropolitan Epiphanios had the feeling that this conversation was a provocation, and he stopped her,” – said in ptsu.

The press service noted that such provocations have already been conducted and from experience we know that if provocateur does not receive a suitable response, the installation records with the manipulation of individual words and phrases.

“So if the media will appear some fragments of the conversation, the audience should be tailored to the situation and not to trust such information,” – said in ptsu.

We will note, earlier in the Internet published the audio recording of the conversation of the Minister of defence of Ukraine Stepan Poltorak with “audioboom Poroshenko”, prepared by the Russian pranker Lexus.

We will remind that on December 15 the Unification Cathedral in Kiev was elected major of a local Church former Metropolitan of the UOC-KP Epiphany (Dumenko). In the Russian Orthodox Church called “canonically null and void” held in Kiev Unification Council, which was elected the new head of the Ukrainian Church.
