The spokesman of the Polish Bishops' Conference refutes TASS reports about the takeover of the Archdiocese of Lviv - фото 1
The spokesman of the Polish Bishops' Conference Dr. Leszek Gensiak called "ridiculous" the information from the TASS news agency released on June 22 that "the Catholic Church of Poland wants to absorb the Ukrainian Archdiocese of Lviv."

This is reported by CMC.

"This type of media "sensations" of the Russian news agency should be considered, for obvious reasons, as an element of propaganda warfare. However, they have nothing to do with reality, but are a typical example of fake news," the clergyman said.

He stressed that never, even behind the scenes of various Episcopal meetings, will anyone seriously discuss such a surreal idea.

"The Concordat is an international agreement signed between the two countries. Now, of course, there is no need to review this agreement," said the spokesman of the Polish Bishops' Conference. He also added that the Polish Bishops' Conference integrates bishops who serve in Poland.

Therefore, there is no reason for an ordinary diocesan from outside Poland to become a member of this organization, even if he is a pole by nationality.

The statement by Fr Gensiak is a reaction to the news of the Russian official state news agency TASS, which on June 22 this year stated that "the Catholic Church in Poland wants to absorb the Archdiocese of Lviv of Ukraine."
