Dashkevich: Church Must Save Souls, Not To Teach How to Shoot


The leader of “Malady front” Zmitser Dashkevich commented on the activities of Orthodox “sport and patriotic” associations on 4 November.

According to Dashkevich, an entire network of so-called “sport and patriotic” associations is active in Belarus, which want to save “Russian world” and to protect it from external enemies, Radio Ratsiya reports.

“It is worth mentioning that such organizations act under the auspices of Orthodox Church, – Dashkevich comments. – It is totally strange: the church which must save souls organizes war games in the woods. We see that the nation is abound in alcoholism, it dies, we see the numbers of abortions, of drug addicts and so on, and the Orthodox Church instead of saving souls and lives of people who desroy their lives hust creates some kind of pro-terrorist organizations”.

There are Orthodox military-patriotic clubs in Hrodna, Vitsiebsk, Minsk, Brest, Homiel, Pastavy. Children from the age of 10 can participate in such organizations.
