The conference, attended by 14,000 people and led by Pastor Vladimir Muntyan from the Revival Spiritual Center, was being held on Saturday, July 7, 2012, in the Palace of Sports, the largest hall in Ukraine, when eyewitnesses reported that shortly after the event had begun, the sound was cutting out in the hall.

Managers at The Palace of Sports then told the conference organizers that a phone call had been received about a bomb threat.

A spokesperson for gathering said, “In connection with [the threat], the sound systems were turned off and the service continued through the stage monitors. Then, after the monitors were also turned off, Vladimir Muntyan preached and prayed for people with the help of megaphone.

“At 7:30 pm the pastor then asked people to leave the hall. They also prayed for the person who informed them about the bomb threat,” noted the press center.”

After a search, the local police reported that they did not find any bombs in the hall.

Victor Matveev, a minister at the Revival Spiritual Center, underlined that he felt that this was a “planned action”.

He added, “There are people who don’t like Pastor Muntyan and our church, and I believe they made an effort to disturb the conference.”
The minister also said that, in spite of the incident, “a lot of people received healing and some even rose from wheelchairs.”

“I am glad that the Ukrainian people have a huge spiritual thirst for God’s presence,” noted Vladimir Muntyan. “I saw how the hall was full of people an hour before the conference began. Despite someone’s plan to disturb the meeting, God revealed His glory.”

He went on to say, that “Holy Spirit touched all participants, and added, “The situation shows me the importance of the work that we are doing in Ukraine. Satan opposes us, but his end is predicted. After this incident, I want to do more crusades, more miracle services. God’s Name will be glorified in Ukraine!”

The Revival Spiritual Center was opened in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine, in 2002. There are many affiliated churches across all Ukraine. In 2012 they opened church in Kiev, the capital city.
