Metropolitan Epifaniy of Kyiv and all Ukraine met at his residence on July 20, 2021 with the commander of the ground forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Colonel-General Oleksandr Sirsky.

Archpriest Petro Landvytovych also took part in the meeting, the official website of the OCU reports.

The Primate of the local Ukrainian Orthodox Church discussed with the commander of the ground forces the current situation in countering Russian aggression in the Joint Forces Operation zone and the draft law on the service of military chaplaincy (No. 4626).

"We are doing everything possible to ensure that chaplaincy is at the proper level because we understand the significant role of a military priest in spiritually supporting The Defenders of the motherland and raising the morale of our soldiers," Metropolitan Epifaniy said in particular.

In addition, they discussed the possible development of cooperation in military educational institutions.

At the end of the conversation, His Beatitude awarded Oleksandr Syrsky with the order of the Holy Great Martyr Yuri the victorious.
