Fake In Ukraine, they sell an Orthodox book, according to which killing Russians is not a sin

Propagandists spread through anonymous telegram channels with pro-Russian rhetoric a photo of the book “War and the Bible”, where one of the chapters is allegedly called “Killing Russians is not a sin”. However, this is fake.

Analysts of the VoxCheck project drew attention to it. They found out that the book is being sold at the Kovcheh online store. On his website one can find its content, where there is no section “Killing Russians is not a sin”. The section on page 67 is actually titled “Who will win the future war”, which contradicts the image that the posters are spreading.

By spreading such fakes, propagandists want to justify Russia's actions and accuse Ukrainians of “blasphemy” and desecration of religion. They say that the Ukrainian authorities oppress the real sincere faith and adjust it to suit their political goals. Detector Media also wrote about other examples of the use of this message, in particular, about a fake with blackened crosses in the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra.
