Laity of UOC-MP to de-Russify the Church, NSDC Secretary believes - фото 1
The NSDC Secretary is confident that all aspects of life must be de-Russified, including the Church. Only in this case should the laity decide for themselves, but he is 99% sure of them.

UAnews quoted Danylov as saying this.

"I believe that this will be done by laypeople, and they will do it. Because everything connected with Moscow must be eliminated on the territory of Ukraine. It is strange to me that even on such days (during the celebration of Easter), some people's deputies dress up in the priest's cassocks of the Moscow Patriarchate, and at the same time they claim that they are supporters of an independent country. Let me remind you that this is a very dangerous thing. In our country, de-Russification should occur in all areas of our life: in the economy, politics and other areas of our life. But as for the church, it should be decided by the laity, and I am more than sure that 99% of the parishioners of a particular church will definitely decide as needed in favor of our state," Danilov said.
