Moscow Patriarch Kirill, who has been widely criticized for his support for Putin's invasion of Ukraine, slipped and fell at a church service.

Munich/Moscow — He justified the Ukraine war and called on the soldiers of Russian ruler Vladimir Putin to fight: Moscow patriarch Kirill.

In the context of the Ukraine conflict, he attracted attention with his support for the invasion of Ukraine.

Even sanctions were considered against him, but due to resistance from Hungary, he narrowly escaped the measures.

All this made him extremely unpopular, especially in Ukraine.

At a mass dedicated to the dedication of a church in the southern Russian port and naval base of Novorossiysk, Patriarch Kirill slipped and fell.

For a Ukrainian opposition network, this is a "sign" from God.

His fall was due "to the laws of physics".

"The floor is beautiful, you can see your reflection in it, it's so shiny and smooth.
