The Moscow Patriarchate will not dictate conditions to Ukraine – Poroshenko

Московский патриархат не будет диктовать условий Украине - Порошенко

Petro Poroshenko promises to prevent the incitement of inter-religious conflict in Ukraine

The President promises to prevent the incitement of sectarian conflict in Ukraine in connection with the establishment of an Autocephalous Orthodox Church.

President Petro Poroshenko said that the Ukrainian Orthodox Church Moscow Patriarchate will not dictate conditions to Ukraine, and nobody will be able to ignite sectarian conflict in the country in connection with the establishment of the Autocephalous Orthodox Church. He stated this on Wednesday, December 5, at the Forum of local self-government.

“The Moscow Patriarchate will not dictate conditions that will not stigmatize, who have canonical, and who is graceless. Believers themselves will choose what Church to go, no one to anything to force will not be”, – assured the head of state.

Poroshenko also noted that the Autocephalous Orthodox Church of Ukraine will not be public, and the government guarantees the constitutional right of freedom of religion, including those citizens who want to remain in unity with the Russian Church.

In this regard, he urged local authorities not to allow any provocations and violence on religious background.

Earlier, Poroshenko told the date and venue of the Unification Council, which must proclaim the establishment of the Autocephalous Church in Ukraine.

We will remind, on October 11, the Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate cancelled the decree of 1686 on the transfer of the Kyiv Metropolitanate to the jurisdiction of the Moscow Patriarchate, which provided the right to appoint the Metropolitan of Kiev. It was also decided to cancel the anathema of the Primate of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchate Filaret and the head of the Ukrainian Autocephalous Church Macarius.

On 29 November, the Ecumenical Patriarchate approved the draft Charter of the Ukrainian Church, which granted the Tomos of autocephaly.

Ukraine to independence, the Church needs the Association of churches. The UOC-MP stated that they would not join a unified Church in Ukraine.
