Patriarch and Sheikh In pursuit of the KGB


ku

Often you can hear that Stalin’s policy towards the Church – is his understanding and support of the church. Let’s try to lose faith in this blinders.

September 4, 1943 Stalin created the MP (formerly of such an organization was not) and appointed glavpopom Sergius. The real head of the ROC-MP was Karpin, a KGB officer. Created this structure special services was to identify individuals who collaborated with the Nazis in the parishes, open Hitler (and the other was not), the newly liberated from German troops, territories. For the same purpose, in the next 1944 AUCECB was created as a platter of various Protestant – as a division of the KGB intelligence). So, as a division of the security services, the Moscow Patriarchate and AUCECB and lasted until the end of the Soviet Union. After the August coup sun Commission opened the archives of the KGB and released the data, in particular the entire leadership of the MP it turned out the KGB agents. Including Riediger (Alexis 2) – agent “Drozdov” Gundyaev (Cyril) – agent “Mikhailov”, etc. And Protestants Karev, liquid, Ponomarchuk, Andreev, White, Radchuk, Kotyakov, Bondaruk, Sargsyan …

Among the documents discovered by the Parliamentary Commission of the Supreme Council of Russia (Boris Perchatkin: Orthodox priest Gleb Yakunin, worked in the Russian Armed Forces Commission) to investigate the causes and circumstances of the coup d’état (coup in August 1991) have been reports on the activities of the 4th Division 5 th Directorate of the KGB. These reports represent a wealth of material for historians of the Russian Orthodox Church, studying its fate in the Soviet period. They referred to the recruitment of priests at the service of security. According to archive data, clergy recruitment policy actually began from the very first years of Soviet power.

“… I discovered and published by a number of other archival documents showing that many hierarchs of the Moscow Patriarchate at the same time were KGB agents, and selected the most promising security agents were promoted to positions of leadership of the Moscow Patriarchate as its hierarchy.

These publications are excerpts from reports of “curators church” KGB leadership, indicating the extent of implementation of the security organs in the church environment. We present here only one entry for the year 1987:

“For the first time in the Soviet delegation took part in the session of the UNESCO General agent” Adamant “, among the hierarchs of the ROC is considered … Five cases of personal and working on the territorial bodies of the agents recommended for promotion to the upper echelons of the Russian Orthodox Church. 4 Head of Department Colonel Timoshevsky “(CA l.358 KGB report from the Office 4 Division 5).

… Truly, “cadres decide everything”. It is noteworthy that the agent “Adamant”, that is to say Metropolitan Juvenal (Poyarkov), according to the KGB discovered the documents, together with other bishops of the Moscow Patriarchate and the leaders of other religions in the former USSR was awarded the KGB credentials “for long-term cooperation and active assistance to organs of state security,” “1985 g, l. 51. notes prepared by the KGB of the USSR on the promotion agent “Adamant”. Shugay. V.I.Timoshevsky “.

Disclosed and undercover moniker another prominent church KGB agent – “Abbot”. This moniker belongs Eminence Pitirim, Metropolitan of Volokolamsk and Yuryev.

The weekly “Ogonyok” was exposed, “Antonov agent” – Metropolitan of Kiev Filaret (Denisenko) (now Patriarch of Kyiv and All Ukraine). He focused on three articles. Their author Alexander Gentle (possibly written under the order authorities) ends his latest article “The third name” as follows: “At birth, His Beatitude named Michael, when receiving the tonsure was given the name Filaret; the third the name of it was called the KGB. ” (Editor – as it is known by Gleb Yakunin Denisenko, Kyiv Patriarch of having links with the KGB repented)

Let us ponder the significance of this third name. Monk gets a third name only when trimmed in the great angelic – in the schema, and His Beatitude and his brothers in the Synod is the third name received from the KGB under the “tonsure” in the spy service of godless evil empire (it should be noted that “the third name” future agent KGB himself chose and received his formal, putting his signature on the document on cooperation). Vladimir Zelinsky theologically develops this idea as follows: “Where the names of the bishops of the church hides a nickname or moniker, she, ie, Church turns into an anti-church, it took the organizer of this performance.

Because the name of, among other things, also the particle liturgy. God’s name as a person’s name. When the Great Entrance are remembered the names of the Patriarch, the ruling bishop, priest and servant “of all upcoming and praying” that at the moment – in a few words – how to assemble and looks around the whole Church. Here it is to be to the Father, who knows each by name. Under this name he calls remembers leads, judges, and saves us – regardless of our faith or lack of faith – gives us the road Guardian Angel.

“Hath an ear (hearing), let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches: To him who overcomes I will give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it” (Revelation 2:. 17) . But where wittingly or unwittingly parodied church, also comes a change of name. “Potemkin”, “Gregory”, “Abbot”, “Adamant” …

новые погоны

New straps (…) And this change of name has its support in the Scriptures. The same Apocalypse says: “… and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image and receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14; 11.). Is it possible that all the “Potemkin” and “abbots” never remembered, the heart did not hear these words of John? “(” What has been said in the dark, “Russian idea, 24 April 1992, pp. 6-7) .Parlamentskaya Commission found that the former representative Patriarchate in the United States, Archbishop Clement (now Kaluga) – agent “Topaz”. Metropolitan Methodius of Voronezh, until recently, was hiding behind the pseudonym “Paul.” Metropolitan Filaret of Minsk – “Ostrovsky.” The late Metropolitan Nikodim Rotov – “Svyatoslav” and Patriarch Alexy II of – “Drozdov”.

This publicity, however, does not prevent them to continue their normal activities – from conducting services, practice believers receive ambassadors and other prominent foreign dignitaries, convening synods and councils, to carry out various charity events.

In his speech, that can not lie, Dorotheus wrote:

“… No anger, no heresy, nor the devil can not deceive anyone except only under the guise of virtue. The Apostle says that the devil himself is transformed into an angel of light, it is not surprising that servants of the servants of truth is its preobrazuyutsya.v (Cor 11: 14-15.) “.

The young agent Vladimir Gundyaev- “Mikhailov” during service in Switzerland

At a meeting of students of the Moscow State University, Head of the Department for External Church Relations of the Moscow Patriarchate, Metropolitan of Smolensk and Kaliningrad Kirill Gundyaev (aka agent “Mikhailov” – the current Patriarch ROC) said that the fact that the clergy meetings with representatives of the KGB “moral indifference” (Bulletin, “The direct way », N 1-2, 1992 YG). With this statement does not agree. Can not be considered normal and harmless to the intervention of the Church in the life of her whatsoever state leadership, the more godless. The two opinions on this matter can not be. The immorality of this situation is obvious.

… Many believed and claimed that Patriarch Alexy II was elected by the free will of bishops of the Moscow Patriarchate. However, according to newly discovered documents, during the preparation of the Local Council in 1990 and the future head of the KGB Kryuchkov putschists sent to all departments of the KGB special coded telegram, invites the Office to promote the election to the patriarchal throne Metropolitan Alexy of Leningrad (Ridiger).

Whether bold gathered at the Cathedral Church agents disobey his boss? Over recent years, none, “Drozdov”, “Abbot”, “Ostrovsky” and others, not yet disclosed, – none of these “agents in cassocks” has not brought an example of repentance! No one!
