Crosses chopped down: 'Anti-church hysteria' spreads across Russia

Several Orthodox Christian crosses have been chopped down in different parts of Russia. The incidents come after the Femen movement attacked a cross in Kiev to protest the sentence of the punk band Pussy Riot, who received two years in prison.

­The incidents occurred overnight. Crosses have been taken down in the Chelyabinsk region, Urals and Archangelsk region, northern Russia.

By the time police arrived at the scenes the vandals had already left. Authorities have launched an investigation into both cases.

The Arkhangelsk cross was erected in the memory of the victims of political repressions, said a local priest, Hegumen Feodosy.

He also said that in recent years the monastery, situated across the street from the cross, has seen two arson attacks and a number of other acts of vandalism.

“This comes in the context of all these incidents in recent months across the country, all this anti-church hysteria waged against our diocese, against the church authority, against everything sacred,” Hegumen Feodosy said.

The two incidents follow a similar case when the leader of the Ukrainian activist group Femen took down a cross in Kiev using a chainsaw. The act, which was filmed and photographed, later received wide circulation on the Web.

In a statement Femen declared that the cross was taken down in solidarity with the members of punk band Pussy Riot, who were sentenced to two years in jail for hooliganism motivated by religious hatred.

A topless activist from confrontational group FEMEN has attacked Russian Patriarch Kirill during his visit to Ukraine.

­Yana Zhdanova ran up to Patriarch Kirill screaming "Get out" and tried to block his way as he was reportedly walking towards the press at Kiev Airport.

The FEMEN member had “Kill Kirill” painted on her back and was protesting against “anti-state activities of the patriarch” and the arrest of anti-Putin activists, the FEMEN’s online Livejournal blog explains.

“Regrettably, people are trying to stain the Patriarch’s visit to Ukraine through these stunts,” the head of the patriarch’s press service, Deacon Alexander Volkov, said, adding that such incidents are not new and signal “a deep spiritual crisis in some social circles.”

The activist has been sentenced to 15 days behind bars for the assault.

Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia arrived in Kiev on Thursday at the start of a three-day visit to Ukraine dedicated to the Baptism of Rus Day, a holiday shared by both Russians and Ukrainians.

The FEMEN movement of female Ukrainian protestors has a flair for topless stunts. Some of their recent activities included "Strip it" protest against Euro 2012, a topless protest in the Vatican’s St. Peter’s Square and naked demonstrations for "freedom" in Ukraine.

Jews have gone nuts.

Russian cops are hateful pigs just looking for any excuse to grab hot naked chicks.   >:(

We all know that slim & sexy young women are traditionally the vanguard of human-rights movements.  No way jews could be paying models big $$ to do these stunts. 

Seriously, FEMEN even was paid to demonstrate in Davos at the World Economic Forum.  FEMEN is just a new twist on PTB's use of agent provacateurs ie "Black Bloc" anarchists...US TeeVee news chimes in yesterday that Tampa cops are ready for anarchist onslaught.

My first thought was they're trying to incite anti-Semitism in Russia and the Ukraine.

I've heard that it doesn't cost much to convince a Russian girl to get naked.  Probably just hearsay.
