One local Church will be subordinated to the Constantinople, and all decisions will be made in Istanbul, and the Exarch are curators at Epiphany and will continue to stay in Ukraine.
This was during a press conference in the information Agency “ГолосUA” said the political scientist, candidate of historical Sciences Valentin Gaidai.
According to the analyst, the authorities stated that all three faiths have United, but we know that United are only two non-canonical confession – a former Kyiv Patriarchate and former Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church (UAOC). Without participation in the Council of the UOC-MP can only talk about the wedding without the bride.
“Won personal interests – won by Bartholomew – Church is Autocephalous, and will be subordinated to the Constantinople. Tomos means that all decisions will be made in Istanbul. The Exarch are curators at Epiphany and will continue to stay in Ukraine”, – said Vladimir Gaidai.
The analyst added that Poroshenko announced that the state will guarantee the protection of those priests and parishioners that will go in from one denomination to another. There are calls Poroshenko to the majority of the parishioners that they should voluntarily move to the new Church. It is, in fact, a violation of the Constitution, when the state intervenes in the Affairs of the Church.
“This is alarm bells. Unfortunately, it’s the show we’ve seen on December 15 at St. Sophia square will give carte Blanche for an attack on the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate,” stressed Vladimir Gaidai.
according to the analyst, the national local Church was established under the sounds of Ukrainian national anthem and Ukrainian flags. Poroshenko artfully in the morning and buried the Kyiv Patriarchate and the UAOC. It’s brilliant.
The new Church is not United denominations, but has exacerbated a schism in the world Orthodoxy.
“Many Orthodox churches in the world do not recognize this Association (e.g., to the Bulgarian Orthodox Church has recognized the “Cathedral” uncanonical, the Belarusian Orthodox Church a new Church structure called “schismatic”, etc.). Many will not shake hands with the Epiphany. In Ukraine, it will mean another round of confrontation at a Church level and a new force”, – concluded Vladimir Gaidai.
