Relations with the Moscow Patriarchate have reached a further impasse, - the OCU speaker - фото 1
Relations between the Orthodox Church of Ukraine (OCU) and the Moscow Patriarchate have reached an impasse. The UOC-MP presents itself as an exclusive canonical Church and ignores the status of other churches.

This is stated in the article on RBC-Ukraine "The road of faith. How the Ukrainian Church has changed in 30 years and where it is moving".

According to Archbishop Yevstratiy (Zoria), as compared to 2018-2019, the church situation has improved in some ways, remained unchanged in some ways, and even worsened in some ways.

"Relations with the Moscow Patriarchate have reached an even greater impasse, which has taken an absolutely destructive position of deaf rejection of reality. They meet all initiatives with deaf denial, present themselves as an exclusive canonical Church, and all the others are not only partners but not even orthodox or Christians," archbishop Yevstratiy said in a comment to RBC-Ukraine.

Earlier, the Primate of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine Epifaniy said that the UOC-MP still denied military aggression on the part of Russia.
