I apologize in advance that I am not posting any links to Internet sources, because, so far, the debate goes on in the Ukrainian and the Russian languages. As things get translated into English, I will add links.
Recently, a group of members of the Ukrainian Parliament (Verkhovna Rada, VR) wrote a petition to the President and Prime Minister of Ukraine, asking to revise the currently existing Ukrainian laws from the point of view of principles outlined in the document known as the "Fundamentals of the Teaching of the Russian Orthodox Church About the Human Dignity, Freedom, and Rights." Although there is no personal signature under the petition, the journalists and other experts who are currently discussing this document unanimously define Vadim Kolesnichenko, a representative of the Party of Regions of Ukraine (PRU) as its actual author. Kolesnichenko has not denied so far that he is the document's author.
The petition, essentially, claims that the whole concept of "human rights" is a "liberal Protestant" intellectual construction and it has never worked for Russia or Ukraine, nor will it ever work. It goes on to say that the policies of the Ukrainian state must be based not on this foreign and useless concept but on the idea that there are certain "spiritual values" that the Ukrainian (or Russian) people have "deep inside."
There aren't many specifics in the petition, and yet it makes it clear that profound changes should be made in the attitude of the state authorities toward mass media, art, theatre and cinematography, journalism, and the political mechanisms. There are allusions that the state authorities must have more power to act swiftly in order to stop "indignity" in the media and "chaos" in the political life.
So far, there were two serious comments made on this petition by Ukrainian Orthodox faithful. One came from Archishop +AUGUSTINE (of L'viv and Halych, UOC), who took the podium in the VR and agitated the audience to support the petition. The other is an article, written on the Religious Information Service of Ukraine (RISU) Web site by Yuriy Chornomorets', an Orthodox layman, a journalist. Mr. Chornomorets' says in his article that the petition is as absurd as it can possibly be. He quotes many Church Fathers and His All-Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew I, supporting the notion that basic human rights exist to a very large extent because of the ideas of early Christian theologians, and that getting rid of fundamental human rights will lead to autocracy and repressions rather than to the alleged "triumph" of putative "spiritual values."
Overall, the battle over this issue seems to be carried out, as it is always the case in recent years, by the two opposing "camps." One of them is very pro-Russian and anti-Western (PRU in politics, some UOC hierarchs in the Church). The other is pro-Western, pro-European; it does not seem to have a well-defined political base in the VR or in the executive branch of the Ukrainian political machine, but it has a solid support on various public Internet fora and blogs.
