Viktor Ivanov, a priest of the RPC from Ufa, arrived in the temporarily occupied territory of the Zaporizhzhia region to perform the rite of baptism of two Russian occupiers in body bags.
The priest himself shared the “joyful” news on his page, he reports “UP”.
Gore-priest also declared that there was symbolism in this baptism.
According to him, he was approached by Russian servicemen who wanted to be baptized. There were no pelvises in which to perform the ceremony, so black plastic bags were used for the procedure.
He claims that the soldiers were not bothered by the black bags usually reserved for the dead, and the ceremony went well.
“They placed an ammunition box on a fallen tree, lining it with a plastic bag from the inside. A large Kazan icon of the Mother of God was installed on the same tree. A cardboard box was brought for the legs, which was also lined with a sack.
By the way, this baptism had its own symbolism. In baptism, a person dies to sin, and they were baptized in “funeral” packages; a new person is born – a warrior of Christ, and they put their hands in the ammunition box. The grace of God for Christians is like ammunition for soldiers.”
