Religious tensions are deepening dividing lines in Ukraine's crisis, with rival churches taking political sides and Kyiv slighting the Russian Orthodox Church, a senior official of the Moscow-based church said on Friday. Metropolitan Hilarion, head of the Russian Church's foreign relations department, said other churches had clearly lined up behind the Kyiv government and he cited religious differences for its decision to refuse him entry to Ukraine last week.
