Ukraine legalizes raider attacks on churches

Summary of Disinformation

The new Ukrainian law on religious communities will allow raider attacks on churches.


No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the autocephaly of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.

In fact, according to the new Ukrainian law on religious communities, the membership in a religious community is based on the principles of free will. The decision to change the subordination of a community or transfer its property is made by the religious community itself, based on majority vote.
