Constantinople ruled on the Kiev Patriarchate

A number of Greek portals close to the Church of Constantinople report that the decision of the Holy Synod of the Patriarchate of Constantinople, which was adopted at a meeting on Thursday, the self-proclaimed "Kiev Patriarchate" and "Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church" was granted the status of canonical churches.

This decision was the result of a lengthy review of the appeal of the leaders of the above organizations - Filaret Denisenko and Makarii Maletich, to the Patriarch of Bartholomew of Constantinople.

It should be noted that Filaret Denisenko, who, with the filing of the Kiev authorities in 1992, established the so-called “Kiev Patriarchate”, in 1997 was recognized by the Russian Orthodox Church as a schismatic and anathematized. After that, representatives of the Orthodox Church ignored him.

The goal of the Ukrainian authorities and Filaret Denisenko is to create an autocephalous church, independent of the Moscow Patriarchate. However, according to the fears of many experts and politicians, the receipt of the status of canonical churches by the "Kiev Patriarchate" and the "Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church", in addition to the civil one, can also ignite a religious war in Ukraine.

    I hope that the Orthodox in Ukraine have still retained the ability to think and anticipate, and have already created church defense groups from strong and trained Orthodox.

    There will be no religious wars - they will disappear in the former USSR. Yes, and our MP - too ...
    People have become completely different ... some kind of indifferent, or what? And the injustice that is happening in this country is a clear confirmation of this. They (the people) are being crushed, but they just wipe themselves off and endure ... Strange ... how did this "guide rEvolution happen"? Ahh, they paid little money to the rebels7 Well, well ...
