Ukraine: The Road to Schism

Religious wars seemed long gone, but in the 21st century, persecution on the basis of religion is once again a reality. The Orthodox Church, which has a long history and huge number of believers, was condemned as pro-Russian in Ukraine. Orthodox Christians are attacked, imprisoned, and even killed all over the country. “The Ukrainians are shelling Orthodox Churches,” Spas TV special correspondent Aleksandr Egortsev says. Why do Ukrainian nationalists encourage a schism within the Orthodox Church?

Watch "Ukraine: The Road to Schism" on RTD website and on RT's live feed. The time of the broadcast is available on RT's schedule page.
