The Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) is appalled by the decision on 11 October 2016 of the Moscow Oblast Court to uphold the ruling of the Nohinsk municipal court calling for the demolition of the Holy Trinity Church of the Bohorodsk Eparchy of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church Kyiv Patriarchate.

The demolition of the Holy Trinity Church would be sacrilegious and further trample on the basic religious rights of the faithful of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church Kyiv Patriarchate in the city of Nohinsk by leaving them without any place of worship.

“The Ukrainian World Congress appeals to the international community, including human rights organizations, to pressure the Russian Federation to rescind this odious decision calling for the demolition of the Holy Trinity Church of the Bohorodsk Eparchy of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church Kyiv Patriarchate,” stated UWC President Eugene Czolij.
