Ukraine’s Security Service searches home of Metropolitan Luka of Moscow-linked church – Ukrainska Pravda source in SSU

The Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) has launched searches at the home of Metropolitan Luka, born Andrii Kovalenko, of Zaporizhzhia and Melitopol of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate (UOC-MP).

Source: Ukrainska Pravda source in SSU

Details: Investigative actions are taking place in the city of Zaporizhzhia on the morning of 1 May.

The SSU has promised to provide details later.

For reference: Chesno, a Ukrainian movement focusing on advancing political transparency, reported that Metropolitan Luka was involved in spreading pro-Russian propaganda and justifying Russia’s armed aggression against Ukraine.

In 2023, Kovalenko claimed that the scale of the Stalin-Khrushchev persecution of the Church in the Soviet Union was negligible compared to what is happening now in Ukraine.

In 2022, he claimed that Ukrainians deserved Russian bombing because they „tolerated gay pride parades in Kyiv“.
