Russian Resurrection (so-called)

According to the website of Bishop George of Bolgrad (ROCOR-A) it appears that MP priests along with the help of authorities are threatening Vologda parishioners due to their engagement in legal proceedings concerning their existence. Apparently authorities are working with a Father Alexei Mokievsky of the Goritskiy monastery, in silencing complaints; one parishioner of the ROCOR-A was threatened with the loss of her children by the priest, and the next day a city custodian, who had previously shown no interest in the “welfare” of the family, came by to interrogate her on religious matters.
