An incident took place today in the territory of Kiev-PecherskLavra near building 41/41. The incident involved the FatherSuperior and Correspondent's journalist Kseniya Karpenko who triedto obtain a comment from Pablo for her article about the financiallife of the Church. The journalist accues the Metropolitan inunmannerly conduct: "he was answering rudely... then he startedtwisting my arms and took away my phone."
Metropolitan Pavlo has a different version: "during the service twojournalists walked around the temple and asked about me and myassistant. Then they waited for me near the house. One of them tookmy pictures from a distance. Another filmed me on the phone cameraand with a hidden camera. The journalist asked me: "Where does theChurch get its money?". I told her that I am not authorized todiscuss the matter with her. Then she jumped in my car. I tried tostop her and as a result she scratched my hands. Then she startedfighting so I had to call the police. And after the incident shehad the audacity to address me with "Where is yourhumbleness?"
