Moscow Patriarchate

In a strange and disturbing incident, a UOC(MP) monastery in the diocese of Berdyansk is under investigation after apparently months of statements by the nuns warning of the trafficking of children.  Apparently, this issue first came to light sometime in August 2012. The MP Bishop of Berdyansk said that the allegations are slander, but, if they are true, then law enforcement would have to handle the matter.
