NEWS ITEM: The vicar of the Kyiv Cave of the Monastery (Russian Orthodox Church) Metropolitan Pavlo Lebid allegedly attacked Kseniya Karpenko, a Korrespondent magazine journalist, when she approached him for comments on Sept. 24. Karpenko said Lebid became aggressive when she asked him about the lavish lifestyles of the church clergy. He allegedly grabbed her and took her cell phone which she used to record the conversation. According to Lebid, however, Karpenko was the aggressor. He said she entered his car, bit his finger and injured his leg. He has already called on the president and parliament “to take measures” with “crazy journalists.” Lebid, who also is a Kyiv City Council member from the ruling Party of Regions, is notorious for his clashes with the media. He previously threatened to sue another journalist for asking questions about his lavish lifestyle.
