all the troubles that struck the church of modern heretics nine0007

A number of foreign media recently published an investigation on the infiltration of followers of neo-Nazi and satanic ideology into the state structures of Montenegro and the schismatic "Montenegrin Orthodox Church", whose jurisdiction extends to this country.

We are talking about the active work of two citizens of Montenegro - Nikola Poleksic and Mirna Nikcevic.

Mirna Nikcevic - former Montenegrin diplomat, now in disgrace; a celebrity often featured in the tabloids; civil society activist who is also a member and supporter of the notorious neo-Nazi satanist organization The Order of Nine Corners (O9A). This organization was created in the UK in the 60s, but over time it spread to other countries. In the United States, there are military personnel among its adherents.

Mirna Nikcevic's name made headlines across the former Yugoslavia in 2019 when her inflammatory comment was widely shared on Facebook . Discussing a controversial political issue in Montenegro regarding the ownership of the Serbian Orthodox Church in Montenegro, Nikcevic wrote [referring to a Serbian Orthodox cathedral in the capital] that she would like to "burn this temple along with everyone in it." nine0007

As might be expected, such undiplomatic language was not well received, she was formally reprimanded and removed from her position as duty officer at the Montenegrin embassy in Ankara, Turkey. She previously held the same position in the Montenegrin mission to the Vatican and in Brussels, from where she was reportedly sent home after being arrested for buying Suboxone, a drug used to treat drug addiction.

After her name hit the headlines, especially the Serbian tabloids, she decided to monetize this achievement and make a name for herself in the world of Montenegrin nationalist politics. She created an NGO called "International Montenegro", which officially advocates multiculturalism, EU integration and liberal democratic values, but in reality is for Nikcevic just a conduit for the policies of the former ruling party DPS (that is, her former employer) and former head of Montenegro Milo Djukanovic (they are fellow countrymen, natives of the city of Niksic). nine0007

Although Mirna Nikcevic was a public figure, she made little effort to hide her affiliation with the Order of the Nine Corners. Knowing full well that very few people in the region knew anything about the O9A and its symbols, she was completely open in her communication with the O9A and posted on social media. The authors of the investigation drew attention to the fact that she "liked" a number of posts on page O9A Balkans in Facebook .

Here we see her laying out some fancy custom-made cigarette cases. Signature reads:

Hey haters, this is called a good combination. Run away and piss yourself in fear.

Screenshot of O9A Balkans / Facebook page

The post has a tag referring to the profile of her husband Nikola. In the lower right corner we see a box with the symbol O9A, called the Sigil of Vindex. Vindex, according to O9A beliefs, is the cosmic incarnation of Hitler (or something like that), whose coming will create the Nazi "Galactic Empire".

Screenshot of page O9A Balkans / Facebook

Nikola's comment on this photo symbolizes their relationship:

Oh my love, no one will understand this unless they have dedicated 20 years of their lives to the study of the esoteric and political history of Europe. .. but it is important that we understand... that we are a combination :-) The planet does not know that happened to her, and especially the Serbs... ha...

Nikola himself posted a photo of Myrna reading an issue of The False Prophet, an even more extreme American version of O9A, Tempel ov Blood .

In addition, Mirna Nikchevich registered Nexion LLC. Nexion is the term used to refer to O9A cells or chapters. This information is publicly available on the website of the Central Register of Enterprises of Montenegro.

Nikola Poleksić - career employee of the Satanic Order. Deeply involved in the movement for more than ten years, he came to play a prominent role in the organization, both as an outside adept and propagandist; editing and contributing to their Fenrir magazine. Most recently, he has been one of the group's public faces, maintaining their profile on Twitter , posting David Mayette's interview with activist Nick Lawles and himself being interviewed by journalist Jake Hanrahan.

He actually seems to take O9A more seriously than most, and has been able to achieve some success in his latest "astute adept role".

Unlike his wife Mirna, who has made a real career and publicly uses her real name (albeit assuming a fake public identity), Poleksic has operated under various pseudonyms over the years, including Nikola Kalevich (there are some indications that in what - that moment it was his legal name), Nikolau Svarogov, Agni Hotram, Ignis Stns, Ognya, Varen S. Gnobe, Dmitar Komnen, Ebu-Bekr ibn Poleksiya and αοζ Τρισάγιον. nine0007

Poleksic's identity was established mainly through his connection to the Montenegrin music scene and through his wife Mirna. Nicola played bass in several metal bands between 2008 and 2012, including Fade Out Sequence and Placid Art . None of these groups appear to have anything to do with O9A, but this helped reveal his association with an O9A project called Dark Imperivm . Dark Imperivm mainly produced O9 related chantsA, and ritual music and was directly connected to the ABG lodge.

And when it comes to the three of us, we don't focus primarily on music, but on our esoteric quest. That is why the work on the project Dark Imperivm is progressing slowly. We are interested not so much in the art of music as in the dark arts. Music is just one of the tools we use in our great architecture work Mysterivm . Music is the medium we use to manifest our sinister/dark intentions on the material plane. Sound is a tool for creating a spatial split through which we pour Tmina * into this world.

As of January 2021, Nicola opened and manages the O9A account on Twitter . This is confirmed in a conversation between some other people from O9A.

Perhaps Nikola's most ridiculous and surprisingly successful role in O9A's history was Nikola's infiltration into the so-called Montenegrin Orthodox Church, where he currently holds the title of deacon.

"Montenegrin Orthodox Church" is a small religious organization that is not recognized by any of the major Orthodox Churches in the world. Nevertheless, it enjoyed the favor of the former government and some political parties and can be seen as the religious wing of the growing Montenegrin nationalist movement (of course, having an anti-Serb origin, just as nationalist groups associated with schismatic circles in Ukraine have Russophobic roots). nine0007

Nikola takes part in all the ceremonies of this organization, which copy the Orthodox worship.

On June 20, 2021, Nikola was promoted to the rank of deacon in the parish of Bishop Bozovic in Niksic, and this event was covered by some of the Montenegrin media. The process, which in many Orthodox Churches can take up to several years, was completed in just a few months. In accordance with the rapid pace of progress in this organization, Mirna Nikcevic was baptized on May 25, 2021. Finally, the day before the deacon ceremony, Mirna Nikcevic and Nikola Poleksic were "married" in the church of St. Ivan Crnojevic in Cetinje, in a ceremony presided over by "bishop" Bojan Bozovic. nine0007

Myrna and Nikola's entry into politics and the "church" gave them access to a much broader range of the general public than ever before. Finally, increasingly realizing that they probably shouldn't flaunt their O9A affiliation too openly, they began deleting photos rather than pages, and recently Nicola closed his account αοζ Τρισάγιον while opening a church-friendly " account on your behalf. It should also be noted that the first three Greek letters - AoZ - are a combination of letters actively used by his lodge. nine0007

Myrna and Nikola took advantage of the unstable political situation to advance in these circles for their own purposes. Conditions in Montenegro currently allow them to do things that are unimaginable to most of their O9A counterparts in the West.

They themselves do not believe in anything that they publicly support: Montenegrin nationalism, "Montenegrin Orthodox Church", democracy, etc. All these things are "magical abstractions" for them, and they consider themselves above all this but are willing to manipulate it for their own purposes. They are guided by their own ideas of "esoteric racism" and "Aryanism", which, in their opinion, most people are not able to understand, because they are too stupid. nine0007

For example, in a recent interview with Jake Hanrahan, Nicola stated that he is also a kind of Christian (that he does not consider this incompatible with his Satanism). And when Jake then replied, "So doesn't that make you a magician?", Nicola stated that he is not actually a magician because he is not a member of the mainstream Church, but belongs to his own "Gnostic Church of Christ-Lucifer", which, in his own words, offers a different interpretation of Christianity. Nikola also added that the theology of his church is influenced by the Nazi occultist Savitri Devi. From this we see that Nikola Poleksic is not an honest member and follower of the "Montenegrin Orthodox Church" even in the schismatic form in which it exists, and that his function lies in the satanic "role of insight" for himself. nine0007

In this case, it seems that the leadership of the "Montenegrin Church" turned out to be so stupid and open to all kinds of adventurers that they allowed the leader of the Nazi-Satanist group to become one of its "priests".
