The UOC-MP plans to hold a prayer stand under the Verkhovna Rada, where Bartholomew I will meet with the president and speaker of the parliament
Hundreds of supporters of the Russian Orthodox Church in Ukraine have now gathered in the government quarter. The road to the Kyiv hotel is blocked. The police are on duty along Hrushevskoho Street.
At 11: 00, the UOC-MP plans to hold a prayer stand under the Verkhovna Rada, where Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew will meet with President Volodymyr Zelensky and Parliament Spokesman Dmytro Razumkov.
Representatives of the UOC-MP want to say that they do not support the Tomos that Patriarch Bartholomew provided to the Orthodox Church of Ukraine.
