Clergyman damages phone charger cable of "Telegraf" photographer in the jostling involving Metropolitan Pavlo

30.03.2023, 16:24

"Telegraf" photoreporter Yan Dobronosov had his phone charger cable damaged during the jostling involving UOC MP Metropolitan Pavlo Lebid at the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra on March 30. He reported this to the IMI.

He noted that it was not accidental: a person in a cassock deliberately pulled on it and broke it.

"I didn't contact the police, it's nothing. But I do not regret journalists having their own stance that in this conflict – against Moscow," said the photojournalist.

Dobronosov explained that he does not plan to contact the police because he does not have the time, but said he believed that the police was recording such incidents.

As the IMI reported, on March 30, Metropolitan of the UOC MP Pavlo Lebid tried to knock the microphone out of the hand of "Espreso" correspondent Valeria Pashko while speaking to journalists at the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra.

Also, a UOC MP priest shoved Suspilne correspondent Daria Nematian Zolbin as she tried to ask Metropolitan Pavlo a question, and broke the camera mount of cameraman Viktor Mozgovy.

The Ministry of Culture and Information Policy inspected the Holy Dormition Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra (men's monastery) of the UOC MP and the territory of the Lavra and discovered multiple violations on the part of the monastery.

The UOC MP was supposed to leave the Kyiv Pechersk Lavra by March 29.
