From Monday 15 November Washington Post: NO DOOMSDAY FOR JAILED CULTISTS Kiev, Ukraine---Confounding the prophesies of a Ukranian doomsday cult and its imprisoned "living God," the world failed to end yesterday. Members of the White Brotherhood had expected the doomsday's highlight to be the suicide and resurrection of their self-styled messiah, Maria Devi Khrystos. But instead of ascending to heaven in a huge ball of flame, as foretold, Khrystos spent the day in prison, where she faces charges of hooliganism and seizing state property.... Khrystos, whose name was Maria Tsvihun before she declared herself the messiah in 1990, claims a following of tens of thousands of people worldwide.
