US wants to confront Catholics and Orthodox Christians in Belarus, Foreign Intelligence Service said

The United States is interfering in the religious situation in Belarus, seeking to confront the Orthodox and Catholics, said on Tuesday the director of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service Sergei Naryshkin.

«According to available data, the United States is also unceremoniously interfering in the religious situation in Belarus, seeking to confront the representatives of the Orthodox and Catholic branches of Christianity», – he said.

According to him, calls are made to the clergy of the Roman Catholic Church to openly criticize the Belarusian authorities and use religious events, including sermons, prayers, religious processions, to conduct “opposition political propaganda among believers.”
