Ukrainian ultranationalists from the “Right Sector” stormed an Orthodox church and physically abused parishioners in Ivano-Frankivsk, Western Ukraine.
The real reason behind the incident around the Holy Trinity Church in Ivano-Frankivsk region on September 28 was the decision to hand over one of the buildings located near the church to the musical school. According to a statement made by the press-service of Ivano-Frankivsk Police, the assembly’s decision was followed by the confrontation between the representatives of the assembly and the local parish.
