MOSCOW. Dec 1 (Interfax) - Officers of the Security Service of Ukraine have found pro-Russian propaganda materials while searching the Cyril and Methodius Nunnery in the Trans-Carpathian region, the Ukrainian media said on Thursday.

According to the reports, the brochures deny Ukraine's right to independence and say that Russia, Ukraine and Belarus cannot be divided. Over 20 persons were questioned, including by means of polygraph.

Despite the ban imposed by the eparchy head, the nunnery continues to commemorate Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and all Russia, the media said.

The seized materials will be examined.
