Church should not interfere in political life of the country, chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Volodymyr Rybak said, commenting on the letter of the Culture Ministry to the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church on the participation of its representatives in mass actions.

"I listened to the speech of the church representatives this Sunday on Maidan Nezalezhnosti Square. They said that they came to pray, but I did not hear a prayer as such. I heard the calls. To my mind, the church should not be involved in politics and in power," he told a briefing, ForUm correspondent reports.

Rybak noted that church representatives can pray on Maidan Nezalezhnosti. "In my opinion, the church may conduct prayers on Maidan, but they should not engage in politics," he said.
