People’s Deputy Andrii Derkach stood up for the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, which has been under attack for many years.

According to Derkach, the attacks are an attempt “to serve the interests of foreign puppeteers.”

“But yet again on the anniversary of the Baptism of Rus, believing Ukrainians show their support for the Church,” the politician notes.

Also in his publication, Andrii Derkach gave an example of a spiritual, determined act that was committed by the ministers of the Athos monastery of Dochiar several years ago.

” Several years ago, when Patriarch Bartholomew decided to bring to Athos the Prime Minister of Greece Tsipras, a well-known persecutor of the Orthodox faith and Christian values …
black flags were hung on the pier of the Athos monastery of Dochiar. And on the flags there is a clear and truthful inscription:

“OFF ANTICHRISTS FROM THE HOLY MOUNTAIN!”

As a result, Tsipras’s visit was postponed, allegedly due to a busy schedule, “the deputy wrote.

He cited this story as an example of the fact that faint-hearted politicians will never defeat the true faith and crush the Church, because people are with her.

” GOD cannot be mocked! “, – Derkach summed up.
