Tensions in Ukraine will be used for religious persecution by Poroshenko and NATO

Summary of Disinformation

Tensions within the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and the Ukrainian society were brought about by Petro Poroshenko and NATO intelligence services, as Kiev ratchets up its military actions against the people of east Ukraine in Donbas. This can lead not only to arrests and detentions of religious leaders and their supporters, but also to assassinations of their opponents.


No evidence given about religious persecution and NATO's or its intelligence services' role in it. Recurring Kremlin narrative about Ukraine being an aggressor.
