The Deputy of the state Duma Natalia Poklonskaya has condemned the actions of criminals who, under the cover of religion, become violent. The corresponding statement she posted on his page in the network “Vkontakte”.

“Whoever was behind the organisation of the provocations of the last days in Yekaterinburg, Omsk and Moscow, and whoever had planned to commit new illegal acts — I urge You to stop!” the MP said.

According to Poklonski, if Christianity was spread by the fist and fire, he was long gone on earth. She expressed confidence that “neither customers, nor executors of these crimes are irrelevant to faith and Orthodoxy.”

“I strongly condemn any manifestation of violence, especially present under the guise of extremist activities in the religious sphere. Understand that this is all part of a plan aimed at destabilizing society, the separation of people, the discrediting of Orthodox believers,” she said.

According to the Deputy, “is absolutely legal situation with the movie Matilda someone is used for purposes unrelated to the protection of our history and the saints of the Russian Orthodox Church.”

Poklonskaya has expressed hope that law enforcement and intelligence agencies will give satisfactory answers to your questions and challenges.
