The Lugansk People’s Republic seems to be declaring war on the destructive religious activities of protestants in Eastern Ukraine!
Recently the department of State Security of Lugansk People’s Republic made a disturbing announcement describing what they called:
“The destructive activities of non-traditional religious organizations, which present a threat to safety of the constitution order of Lugansk Peoples Republic.”
In this case “non-traditional” means everyone who’s not Russian Orthodox and mainly includes different protestant groups. The woman goes on to explain the main goal and strategy of these dangerous groups.
“Their main goal is to establish a strategic influence in society… By zombifying people, protestants lure them into their organizations which can then be used to cause mass chaos in Lugansk People’s Republic.”
So it looks like LPR is afraid that protestant churches are going to cause a revolution! Not only that, they claim to have information about who these “non-traditional” groups are working with:
“According to intelligence these groups work with Ukraine special forces and are funded by them”
Now about their dangerous strategies the woman continues:
“First of all they try to get to the youth and also the socially unprotected in society… They force their ideology upon them and enslave the children and the youth and turning them into fanatical followers who are willing to carry out any command… There plan is also supported by foreign religious groups”
The rest of the video is given to two women, one who describes how her son, who was a drug addict was taken in by a Pentecostal rehabilitation center and then later by a Baptist center. According to this mother these groups did more harm than good to her son, whom she eventually had to hospitalize.
The second woman shares a sad story about how her grandmother how a family came to help her grandmother when her health was failing. According to her words, they took care of her grandmother but after awhile stopped letting the granddaughter visit. When she did have a chance to visit her grandmother told her that the people were beating her and giving her some sort of medicine.
At the end one of the journalists asks if there’s an address for the church that was involved and the women say, “yes, Chronomorska 76” This is the address of a Baptist Church which was temporarily seized by the authorities back in 2014.
