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 home.
Earlier, Oleh Nikolaiev received threats via text messages as the battle for Berdiansk was underway. The priest then posted a screenshot of messages, sent by enemy accomplices.
