Russian Orthodox Church calls Maydan protesters a "horde" and calls on Russia to intervene in the internal affairs of Ukraine | The Catholic Commentator

As reported by Interfax, the head of the Synodal Department of the Russian Orthodox Church on Church-Society, Vsevolod Chaplin, called the Maydanivskyy movement in Ukraine the "new horde."

Chaplin also believes that the Maydanivtsi are a small group of people, the majority of whom support far-right wing Ukrainian nationalists. "They are a small group of people spreading lies, both theological and from a public opinion perspective," - said the Moscow church dignitary. "An historic choice now confronts the will of the people" - to keep Ukraine with the regional orbit of Russia. Chaplin urged Russia and Belarus to actively intervene in the internal affairs of Ukraine.
