Next month, the Synod General of the Church of England will discuss an emergency proposal made by Bishop Nick Baines condemning Russia's illegal invasion of Ukraine and calling on Churches to support refugees and the people of Ukraine. The discussion document for the Synod notes a number of potential long-term scenarios that are covered in some circles regarding Ukraine.

The Church of England stated this on Twitter, reports the Spiritual Front of Ukraine.

"This is not the point of view of the Church of England and is not politics. The territorial integrity of Ukraine is beyond doubt. As the document clearly states, the long–term goal should be for Ukraine to control its entire territory,” the report says.

Such statements in the Anglican Church appeared after the British edition of the Telegraph released the article saying that Bishop Nick Baines of Leeds stressed that Ukraine must give up Donbas to Russia in order to achieve a cease-fire.
