Today, November 8, Patriarch of Alexandria and all Africa Theodore II mentioned the name of Metropolitan Epiphany of Kyiv and all Ukraine and called him the Primate of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine. It occurred during the Divine Liturgy on the day of the Archangel Michael (according to the New Style) in the Archangel Michael Cathedral in the capital of Egypt.
Two sources have confirmed the reliability of the aforementioned. An official announcement is expected later. This was informed via Facebook by Archbishop Evstratiy (Zoria), a spokesman of the OCU.
