The UN called for the rights of the believing UOC to be seized

 

The UN expressed concern about the actions of the Ukrainian government towards the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and called for protecting the rights of believers of the UOC.

 

“UNHCHR is closely monitoring how legislative changes in Ukraine may impact the exercise of freedom of religion. The Office has previously expressed concern about government actions targeting the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, which may be discriminatory,” said the Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) Ilse Brands Kehris.

 

Thus, the systematic work of the Representative of the Ukrainian People is yielding its results. For six months, our organization sent appeals to international organizations and foreign Orthodox churches, in which they informed about the systemic policy of destroying the UOC and gross violation of the rights of its parishioners.

 

The representation expresses the hope that these crimes of the Kiev regime will fall into the common treasury to become the basis for a tribunal over those who usurped power in the country, trampling on laws, the Constitution and “European values.”
