Yet another Orthodox Church set to recognize OCU soon, - Rostislav Pavlenko
In the meanwhile, the Orthodox Church of Ukraine may be recognized by another reputable Orthodox Church. This conclusion can be made from the words of the people's Deputy from the "European Solidarity" Rostislav Pavlenko, reports "Pryamyy (Direct) Channel".
"During the year, we have two other Churches that recognized the autocephaly of the Ecumenical Patriarchate: the Church of Greece – one of the most highly reputed churches in the Orthodox world and the second in honor Church of Alexandria.
Now, unfortunately, due to the epidemic, there are several others... I think we spoke on some program, I said that there would be good news – I was referring to Alexandria. I will also say there will be more good news, but first, the Churches must return to normal worship, to normal liturgical processes," Pavlenko said in the program "About personal" with Natalka Fitsych.
On February 14, 2020, the Romanian Orthodox Church recognized that the Tomos was lawfully provided to the OCU. On November 8, 2019, the head of the Patriarchate of Alexandria, Theodore, mentioned Metropolitan Epifaniy of Kyiv for the first time during the Liturgy, when mentioning the Primates of the Local Orthodox Churches.
