Persecuted christians - Conference at the European Parliament about the persecution of Christians in Sub-Saharan Africa (Credit: MEP Bert-Jan Ruissen)

Break the silence on persecuted Christians

MEP Bert-Jan Ruissen held a conference and exhibition at the European Parliament to denounce the silence surrounding the suffering of persecuted Christians worldwide. The EU must take stronger action against violations of freedom of religion, especially in Africa where lives are lost due to this silence.

The icon of the Virgin Bogolyubskaya was stolen from the Church of St. John the Evangelist in the center of Moscow, just 350 meters from the building of the Federal Security Service (FSB) on Lyubyanka Street, Russian media reported. However, an interesting clarification is that until about two weeks ago, the icon was located in the church of the Ukrainian city of Khartsysk on the territory of the separatist Donetsk People’s Republic, from where it was illegally exported. It was written in 2011. On May 9, 2023, the icon began to flow abundantly, believers took this as a sign and were convinced that it heals. Then the icon was taken temporarily to Moscow.

Now the icon has been taken by several women who have been captured on video. It is assumed that among them there are those who came from the occupied Mariupol. It is also reported that one of the women called the rector of the temple, Father Pavel, and explained that the icon was hers and that’s why she took it. Russian police have launched an investigation:

“Everything was fine until May 30th. It was then that three “demonesses” catched on the security video came to the church on New Square and violated the eighth commandment. According to information from the authorities, one of them has already found a bad name in Mariupol. There she deceived people, posing as a “sister of mercy”, and also robbed temples. For destructive activities, the security service of the Donetsk People’s Republic recommended that she leave the territory and not discredit either the Russian Orthodox Church or Russia. As you can see, it didn’t work.”
