Greek Catholics in the Crimea may be left without the church, said today the Head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church in Lviv Sviatoslav Shevchuk.
According to him, from 1 January 2015 the UGCC on the peninsula will be outlawed, and all the church premises and churches will be confiscated.
As stated by the Head of the Greek Catholics, this applies to all churches and religious organizations in the Crimea.
"The so-called Crimean authorities issued a new law under which all religious organizations must go through the process of re-registration to the end of the year. The requirements are very difficult. But even if we had all the requirements, there should be no guarantee that the Greek-Catholic community in the Crimea should have the right to exist ", - said the Head of the UGCC.http://www.radiosvoboda.org/content/article/26652522.html
