In case of granting of the Tomos, a considerable part of the dioceses of the Moscow Patriarchate in Ukraine is ready to join the United Orthodox Church of the Kiev Patriarchate.

The appeal to the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew on the granting of the autocephaly of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church was signed by ten dioceses of the UOC of the Moscow Patriarchate. This was stated by the head of UPTS KP Patriarch Filaret of the Ukrainian truth edition. The corresponding interview was published on Thursday, June 14.

“We know that we have signed about ten, however, publicly stated two. And why others remained silent and how many? Others fear. Afraid of what? And if not Thomas, then Moscow all those who applied, will be punished. And when it will be Tomos when creating a single Local Ukrainian Church, afraid no one will have”, – he said.

According to the Patriarch, the bishops of the Moscow Patriarchate “will be free to join, and we will all be one Ukrainian Orthodox Church.”

According to him, a large part of the UOC-MP is potentially ready to unite.

“Now those potential, according to some observations, about 2/3 of the Moscow Patriarchate. Note that today the Kyiv Patriarchate has support for 40-44% of the population, and Moscow – only 20-24%. If one of these 24% are in unity with the Russian Orthodox Church will remain a third, 8% – this is a small Church and the significant impact it will not have”, – said the head of the UOC-KP.

Recall, April 19 speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Andriy Parubiy has signed a resolution on the appeal to the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew with a request to grant the Tomos of autocephaly of the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church. The document, the Verkhovna Rada adopted on April 19 268 votes.

Later it was reported that the Ecumenical Patriarchate proceeded to consideration of the request of Ukraine to provide its autocephaly of the Orthodox Church.
