Patriarch Kiril sported a classical model: a white-gold case, crocodile leather strap, automatic with an alarm clock. In Ukraine, Breguet watches have Natalya Korolevska, a BYUT lawmaker, Vitaly Khomutynnyk, a Regions lawmaker, Irena Kilchytska, a Kyiv mayor deputy and some others, INTV reports.
Speaking live on the Inter TV channel, Patriarch Kiril called a threat to all humanity the spread of unchecked buying frenzy typical of the West. “If the society gets on the way of uncontrollable consumption, the Earth will not withstand this,” Kiril warned.
The patriarch stressed that unchecked consumption urge is involving more and more people, ridding them of the joy of buying. Spurred by advertising and fashion, people begin to hunt for the latest models of cell phones or cars, Kiril complained.
