Ukrainian investigators have searched the home of an Orthodox Church leader in Kyiv accused of justifying Russia’s armed aggression against Ukraine.

Metropolitan Pavel Lebed runs the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra, Ukraine’s most important monastery. His branch of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (UOC) was previously loyal to Moscow clergy.

Kyiv prosecutors say he is suspected of inciting national and religious hatred.

Kyiv has been trying to evict him and his followers from the monastery.
