The relevant statement was made by the believers of the church, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
In the morning, people armed with assault rifles surrounded the priest’s house. They conducted searches but did not find anything. Meanwhile, they detained the priest and took him away in an unknown direction.
The priest’s wife, Yuliia, who is suffering from an orphan disease and requires regular treatment, was ordered to not leave the house.
A reminder that Oleh Nikolaiev began to receive threatening text messages, when the battle for Berdiansk was underway. The priest posted a screenshot of messages sent by the enemy.
Ukrinform is calling on all international organizations to monitor the situation.
