Kyivan Orthodox Oppose Patriarch Alexis’s Visit
“The current political situation in Ukraine is so ‘calm’ that we only need to invite the Moscow patriarch to visit Ukraine and intensify the discord between Orthodox believers,” said Bishop Dymytrii. He also stressed that the head of the Russian Orthodox Church has repeatedly made hostile remarks about the idea of one national Ukrainian Orthodox Church, as well as about the autocephaly of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. “The hostile attitude of the Moscow patriarch means that we will give him the same hostile reception,” said Bishop Dymytrii.
