The Council adopted the appropriate additions and amendments to the Charter on the governance of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, testifying to the complete independence and independence of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church,” the Church said.

In addition, representatives of the UOC approved the decision of the Councils of Bishops of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and the decisions of the Holy Synods of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, the meetings of which took place after the last Council of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (July 8, 2011). The Council approves the activities of the Office of Affairs and the Synodal Institutions of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.

  1. Other than the ruskie pseudo-church, which is really a part of the Kremlin mob, the Ukrainian Church still adheres to Christian values. They do not bless weapons and do not desire riches and perverted sex!

    • There are quite a lot of rumblings in the UOC-MP that they want to join the UOC. After seeing what putin the blasphemer did in Ukraine I’m not surprised, its their very viability at stake. They must be losing parishioners left and right.

  2. The ROC is deeply corrupt. The head of the gang is KGB and there is no such thing as former KGB. He has also blessed the war which he sees as a way to get the UOC back under his thumb. He wants to try to take Russia back to the 30 years war.
