    Sergei or D what's the story on this?

    I remember living in St Pete's and my Russian friends there were not happy with the Catholic church, but I never felt there was any level of danger beyond an argument or discussion. Now in Ukraine it was a bit more 'tense' between the Orthodox and Catholics.

    Have things changed--tensions escalated--or is this just a random crime or simply a robbery?
     
  2. Police are searching for a citizen of Cuba who study at the Patrice Lumumba University. He is suspected of involvement in the killing of two members of a religious organization «The Society of Jesus». http://translate.google.co.uk/translate?hl=en&sl=ru&u=http://scholar.google.co.kr/nwshp%3Fned%3Dtru_ru%26ncl%3D1248801104%26hl%3Dru%26topic%3Dh%26scoring%3Dn&sa=X&oi=translate&resnum=5&ct=result&prev=/search%3Fq%3D%25D0%259A%25D0%25B0%25D1%2582%25D0%25BE%25D0%25BB%25D0%25B8%25D1%2587%25D0%25B5%25D1%2581%25D0%25BA%25D0%25B8%25D0%25B9%2B%25D1%2581%25D0%25B2%25D1%258F%25D1%2589%25D0%25B5%25D0%25BD%25D0%25B8%25D0%25BA%2B%25D1%2583%25D0%25B1%25D0%25B8%25D1%2582%2B%25D0%25B2%2B%25D0%259C%25D0%25BE%25D1%2581%25D0%25BA%25D0%25B2%25D0%25B5%26hl%3Den

    If it is religion-motivated (which I seriously doubt), then it was done by a nut-job.

    So according to unofficial information alleged killer is a foreigner (from Latin America).

    I'm unaware about any problems between Orthodox Christians and Catholics.
