Zelensky Bans The Pro-Putin Ukrainian Orthodox Church As Putin Falls Down The Stairs And Shits His Pants....
Ukraine bans religious organizations with links to Russia
KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Ukraine on Friday banned the activities of religious organizations “affiliated with centers of influence” in Russia and said it would examine the links between the Ukrainian and Russian Orthodox churches. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy signed a decree enacting a National Security and Defense Council decision to impose personal sanctions against representatives of religious organizations associated with Russia, which invaded Ukraine more than nine months ago. Zelenskyy’s decree additionally provided for examining the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate, one of two Orthodox bodies in Ukraine following a schism that in 2019 resulted in the establishment of one with independence from the Russian church. Ukrainian officials suspect the Ukrainian Orthodox Church is promoting pro-Russian views and that some priests may be actively collaborating with Russia. Moscow Patriarch Kirill, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, has justified Russia’s war in Ukraine as part of a “metaphysical struggle” to prevent a liberal ideological encroachment from the West. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov accused Ukrainian authorities last week of “waging a war on the Russian Orthodox Church.” But the Rev. Mykolay Danylevich, who has often served as a spokesperson for the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, disputed Peskov’s characterization, asserting on Telegram that the church was not Russian. The UOC declared its independence from Moscow in May over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. In his nightly video address on Thursday, Zelenskyy said the use of Kyiv’s Pechersk Lavra monastery complex — a UNESCO world heritage site revered as the cradle of Orthodox monasticism in the region — would also come under further scrutiny. Members of the Security Service of Ukraine, the country’s National Guard and police searched the monastery last week after a priest spoke favorably about Russia during a service there. The Security Service said its agents searched more than 350 church buildings in all, including at another monastery and in a diocese of the Rivne region, 240 kilometers (150 miles) west of Kyiv. The security agency, which is known by the Ukrainian acronym SBU, said the searches turned up “pro-Russian literature, which is used during studies in seminaries and parish schools, including for propaganda of the ‘Russian world.’” More than 50 people underwent in-depth “counterintell
igence interviews, including using a polygraph,” as part of the investigation, the agency said.

SICKLY VLAD ‘Critically ill’ Putin falls down stairs and ‘soils himself’ while plagued with cancer, claims Kremlin ‘insider’
VLADIMIR Putin has reportedly slipped and fallen down several stairs at his official residence, according to claims from a so-called Kremlin insider. According to the report, the 70-year-old cancer hit Russian tyrant was allegedly helped to a sofa by bodyguards as his personal doctors rushed to assist him.The claims say that Putin allegedly soiled himself during the fall. Rumours have persisted that Putin is “critically ill” and the latest claims come after he appeared to wheeze and gasp through a meeting with grieving mothers whose children were killed in Ukraine. Bombshell spy documents leaked to The Sun Online appeared to confirm Putin has early stage Parkinson's disease and pancreatic cancer after months of rumours. The latest allegation about his health comes from Russian Telegram channel General SVR which claims to be fed information by a Kremlin insider. The channel bases its claim about the fall on having sources in Putin’s entourage without offering more proof. According to the channel's claim, the fall led to bruising of his coccyx but also highlighted problems from “cancer of the gastrointestinal tract”. The Russian president was walking downstairs when he “stumbled and fell to his back, after which he fell on his side and slid down a couple of steps, alleges General SVR. According to its claim, the incident took place in front of the president's bodyguards, who reacted quickly and rushed to Putin's aid, Three security officers allegedly helped the president to get to the nearest sofa and called the doctors who are on duty at the residence. Its report claims medics “arrived within a few minutes, but could not immediately examine the president”. This was due to him suffering cancer in his of the gastrointestinal tract which has already caused digestion problems, alleges the General SVR channel. The fall allegedly caused what is described as an “involuntary” reaction and doctors escorted the president to the bathroom and helped to clean up before they examined him. The General SVR report alleges nothing critical was diagnosed and the bruising was treated with painkillers while an investigation is to be carried out into what provoked the alleged fall. The fall comes despite Putin wearing shoes fitted with an with anti-slip coating, it's claimed. Despite this alleged incident Putin was able to attend and speak at a young scientists’ conference in Moscow on Thursday, claims General SVR. The Russian leader has this week mysteriously failed to give keynote speech despite promising to deliver it before the end of the year, the official TASS news agency reports. He has also banned male members of staff from leaving the country, reports the Russian news outlet Baza. Source
