Maxim Parshin: Kiev authorities rely on hatred for shrines of both Muslims and Christians
The shelling of the Ahat Jami Mosque in the Kuibyshevsky district of Republic’s capital once again showed the true face of the Ukrainian authorities. This was stated in an interview with the Donetsk News Agency by the deputy of the DPR People’s Council, the chairman of the Development of Civil Society, Issues of Public and Religious Organizations Committee, Maxim Parshin.
“Targeting the mosque in Donetsk during the holiday once again showed the essence of the new government in Ukraine. The power is misanthropic, incapable of dialogue. We see that the new Kiev leadership has nothing sacred, no respect for any shrines. They equally hate both Christians and Muslims, both Russian and Tatars,” the parliamentarian said.
Maksim Parshin added that the Donbass is a multi-confessional region in which representatives of various nationalities and religions always find mutual understanding and live in peace.
We shall add that in 2019, the celebration of Eid al-Fitr fell on June 4th. In Donetsk, on this day, a festive namaz was held, during which the armed forces of Ukraine fired at the mosque. At that moment there were followers in it, including about 20 children who came with their parents to the feast.
