from a post by Dr. N. Pulypiuk to the AAUS list:

On February 4th.the office of the newspaper Nasha Vira and the premises of the Patriarchy of the
Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church were vandalized by *metropolitan
Mefodii* (Valerii Kudriakov) and accompanying vandals.

The attackers physically abused the secretary of Nasha Vira, former political prisoner
Vitalii Shevchenko, as well as the Chancellor of the Patriarchy, Valerii Kopiika.
They also forcefully removed the editor of the newspaper, the prominent dissident
Ievhen Sversituk, and various staff of the Patriarchy.

Valerii Kudriakov (i.e., *metropolitan Mefodii*) openly endorsed Viktor Yanukovych in the recent elections.

The Office of the UAOC regards this as a criminal action, rather than an act of
inter-confessional strife.

Dear Brate,

Today on the site of the UOC-MP (www.orthodox.org.ua [orthodox.org.ua]) there is an article about Prime Minister Julia Tymoshenko of Ukraine and how she is saying that religious faith is the foundation of any society's material well-being.

She is beautiful, inside and out!
