MP

On May 21st, 2014, Fr. Oleg Nikolaev was attacked in Berdyansk in Ukraine. Apparently, the attack  happened in relation to the continued irritation the ROCOR-A presence has caused to the Sergianist MP bishop.  Ephrem (Yarinko), the MP bishop of Berdyanks, has admitted that the presence of ROCOR-A missions in the area were generating problems. A group of laypeople protested the collaboration between the local MP and the local government in many such attacks.
