Tens of thousands of Orthodox Christians in the Ukraine are taking part in march for peace and as many as a million pilgrims expected to converge on Kiev on July 26th.
The march started in monasteries in the east and west of the Ukraine early this week. As the two columns move through the country, the ranks of pilgrims, many of them carrying icons, have swelled. Media report two hundred thousand people have already have joined the procession.
With little sign of an end of the conflict between the US backed Kiev regime and the Russians in the Crimean republic, a procession is one of the few ways that the population can make their voices heard.
But there are signs that the Kiev regime is preparing to deploy neo Nazi and other paramilitary units to crush the peace movement. Right wing thugs have reportedly started harassing the pilgrims.
The Kiev regime, foisted into power by George Soros’ colour revolution, is deeply unpopular with both ethnic Ukrainians and Russians, and fears the million pilgrims could lead to its overthrow.
The pilgrims coming from the east and west of the country could be joined by a million or more people when they arrive in Kiev.
The standard of living in Kiev has collapsed since the coup of 2014 fuelling resentment of the US and EU backed regime. The cost of heating a home with gas is now three or four times more than the average salary.
Many men have gone into hiding to avoid conscription into the Kiev regime’s army and being sent to the front without adequate weapons or training, leading to high casualty rates. The Ukrainian army is also reported to be on the verge of rebelling against its US handlers.
The Kiev regime has accused the Kremlin of organizing the march, but this overlooks the fact that neither the ethnic Ukrainians nor the ethnic Russians want the conflict to continue.
Large numbers of priests, monks and nuns are participating in the march. The Ukrainian church is incorporated into the Russian Orthodox, which represents about a third of the world’s 300 million Orthodox Christians.
In an attempt to undermine the Russian church’s influence over the Ukraine, Kiev regime set up a puppet church. This false flag church has now announced it will initiate its own processions in support of war.
A Holy Synod of Orthodox churches held one month ago in Crete, and funded by the US state department, attempted a power grab over the Russian orthodox church.
Under the pretext of seeking unity, the Patriarch of Istanbul got the Synod to issue a decree which foresees the creation of a supranational body to oversee the orthodox churches of various countries. There are 14 autonomous churches, many tied to modern nation states.
But the Synod lost credibility when the Russian and three other churches withdrew at the last moment, complaining they were not going to be allowed to have any input into the final agreement.
After the Russians pulled out, the Kiev regime’s ceremonial parliament sent a letter to the Synod urging them to recognize a new puppet Orthodox church as the new religious authority over all of the Ukraine.
But the Synod drew back from questioning the legitimacy of the Moscow Patriarch’s control over the Ukrainian Orthodox christians and monastery, which goes back for hundreds of years.
The Synod said the Russian church is bound by its decree even though it was absent arguing the majority rules, but the Moscow Patriarch has rejected this idea, saying a church does not function like a democracy.
The Greek Orthodox church with its large Greek American branch is also in the pocket of Washington.
The formal leader of the church is Ecumenical Patriarchate based in Istanbul, Turkey, formerly known as Constantinople, the capital of the Byzantine.
He is known as the “Phantom” Patriarch because he has a flock of only three thousand. But the phantom patriarch punches above his weight because of US support.
