UAOC accuses UOC KP of dirty media war
The comment of the UAOC press service regarding the decision of the Holy Synod of UOC-KP was made public by the official website of the UAOC Diocese of Lviv.
"The dirty media war and thirst of precedence of the UOC-KP, which now overflow the information space of Ukraine, only confirms the distortion of historical facts and rewriting of history to please some individuals," goes the UAOC statement.
UAOC makes excursion into the history and emphasizes that “overall, the so-called Ukrainian Councilsigned no single document in 1992, when there was a raider seizure of the UAOC purely as a religious organization, with all its property through illegal amendments to the UAOC Statute, against which Patriarch Mstislav (Skrypnyck) spoke out.”
The UAOC called "blasphemous» the claim that the UOC-KP "is the only real historical and legal successor of both Churches” (UOC and UAOC).
"Such actions of Patriarch Filaretnot only put an end to the “dialogue on unification with the UAOC ,” but pushes both parties to this process of longed-for unification of the Orthodox Church in Ukraine back into the maelstrom of mutual grievances, total distrust and duplicity that is unworthy of either religious persons, or Christians in general,” goes the UAOC statement.
