A proposed new Ukrainian law which will ban the Ukrainian Orthodox Church for merely maintaining communion and ties to the Russian Orthodox Church based in Moscow is poised to go into effect. This after its churches and monasteries have already in some instances been subject to brutal raids by police or else ultra-nationalist thugs, which has been met with international silence despite the egregious violation of religions freedom. Bishops have been hauled before courts, priests have been thrown in jail, monks and nuns have been thrown onto the street.

Ukrainian parliament approved the law Thursday, and it awaits a second reading and then approval by President Zelensky, which he is expected to give, before going into force. Last night Tucker Carlson released a new interview focused on what’s being deemed the Zelensky government’s “war on Christianity”.
