Who are the judges?

Telling about Alexey Ledyaev, it is impossible to ignore the criticism in his address. The condemnation of the Ministers of many Christian faiths have been the idea of Alex creating "new order", where all industry was controlled by religious people. But critics point to the prohibition of mixing Church and politics.

As relates to Ledyaeva Orthodox Church? For many years the Church “New generation” called a sect. Some representatives of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church Ledyaev was invited to speak in sermons, they worked together. But the leadership of the UOC concluded that the sermon Ledyaev threat to Ukraine's sovereignty, and the Church has all the hallmarks of a totalitarian cult.

Russia has approached this matter "responsibly" or, as in the quote from the Bible, “with all authority". In March 2002, at passport control in Sheremetyevo Ledyaev took his passport. Then, without explanation, taken to a cell where he was kept for several hours. Lawyer Alexei replied that such a person did not come. After the media leaked information and photos, Alexey Ledyaev was escorted under guard to the landing and sent back to Riga. Entry to Russia he was banned.
