    Kremlin dictator refers to himself as “peacemaker”, and so did Hitler – Metropolitan Epifaniy

    The Kremlin dictator calls himself a “chief peacemaker” of the world, as Adolf Hitler did in the 1930s.

    This was reported by the Primate of the OCU, Metropolitan Epifaniy.

    As the Primate notes, history knows many examples when evil was disguised as good: for Ukrainians, a telling example is the last century and the godless communist government, which, under the guise of a ghostly “bright future,” destroyed millions of people through all kinds of prohibitions, persecutions, imprisonments, repression, famines, and deportations…

    “Remember that the ‘chief peacemaker’ of the world in the 1930s was Adolf Hitler. Just as the Kremlin dictator now calls himself a ‘peacemaker.’ Just like those who, on his orders, kill our people, justifying it with fictitious ‘protection,’ ‘liberation,’ ‘return,’ ‘restoration of historical justice,’ etc. Just like everyone else who has simply withdrawn, who passively agrees with sin, who thinks it ‘doesn’t concern them’ or ‘it’s not so clear-cut.’ By tolerating evil, they choose its side, inventing various ‘halftones’ to justify it. But before God they have no excuse!

    The two precepts of beatitude exhort man to be thirsty for truth. The Son of God teaches people to say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ about everything without exception – you can’t say to the same thing both ‘yes’ and ‘no’ at the same time, because this is from the evil one, because ‘no man can serve two masters’ (Matt. 6:24). There is only one truth, and it requires action, justice, and light. Instead, artificial, man-made ‘truth’ is deadly dangerous, always in need of cover – excuses, explanations, fabrications, manipulation, flattery, and treachery.

    Call a spade a spade. Ukrainians did not come to a foreign land with war – it’s the enemies who came to our peaceful, prosperous, and tranquil home. They didn’t just come, but brazenly invaded, armed and determined – to kill and rob, destroy and mutilate, without any compassion or humanity. Do they doubt the correctness of their actions? No. Any regret? No. They are completely blinded by hate and envy, pride and gluttony.

    What awaits them? Nothing good. The Holy Scriptures testify to this, and the history of mankind confirms it. ‘Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness (Is. 5:20). And what awaits each of us depends on our choice,” said Epifaniy.
