Yeah, exactly WHAT are you referring to, because there's a LOT going on!

Are you asking about the UOC (MP) ailing hierarch, and the attempts to get rid of him?

It's all a mess!

The devil never sleeps in Ukraine.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

As far as I can tell it looks like Metr. Volodymyr's group is being purged as his right hand man has just been dismissed.  All of the major newspapers are reporting basically the same thing: Українська Правда, Корреспондент and Комментарии.
