A demonic possessed priest and few worshippers assaulted a soldier in a church belonging to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate in Khmelnytskyi on the morning of 2 April.
In the begining, the pro-russian priest claimed, “the soldier threw the Gospel book from the table onto the floor”. And then the soldier entered into a verbal conflict with the priest who was reading the prayer liturgy.
However, later as was proved by the videos the soldier asked the priest, “How many more people have to be killed for you to stop going to the Moscow Patriarchate?”. This made immediately the priest so angry that threw the Gospel on the floor and attacked violently against the soldier.
After a few hours and after this tragic event became known through social media, hundreds of Christian believers began to arrive protesting with patriotic slogans, but also with the slogan: “to Hell the Pope of Moscow”…
У Хмельницькому біля храму УПЦ МП, де побили військового, зібралося близько 500 людей. Серед натовпу десятки поліцейських. Люди проломили ворота, зайшли на територію храму та вигукують: «Геть московського попа» pic.twitter.com/JkoHESVEZQ

Today, and since released the video where priest is seen throwing the Gospel on the floor…, there was a popular Orthodox uprising with thousands of people, where apparently out of an instinct for self-preservation they handed over the keys of the Holy Temple to the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church.
