Ukraine: Protester Accosts Patriarch

A topless activist bearing a threatening message on her body tried to attack Patriarch Kirill I, the leader of the Russian Orthodox Church, on Thursday to protest what her group says are anti-Ukrainian policies by the church and the Kremlin. The protester, a member of the Ukrainian women’s rights movement Femen, managed to get within a yard of Patriarch Kirill at the airport in Kyiv, but she was stopped by a security guard and a priest. The woman, identified by Femen as Yana Zhdanova, had the words “Kill Kirill” written on her back in large black letters. She was detained by the police.
