The UOC-MP will take away all the property, says Filaret

The Patriarch said that the Kiev Pechersk Lavra and the Pochayiv Lavra, as well as all the facilities of the Moscow Patriarchate will be transferred to the ownership of the UOC.

After recognition of a unified Ukrainian Orthodox Church of all the real estate of the Moscow Patriarchate will become the property of the UOC. About it in interview to TV channel Direct said the Primate of the UOC – KP Patriarch of Kyiv and all Rus-Ukraine Filaret, reports the press service of the UOC-KP.

“The state transferred its property to the use of the Ukrainian Church of the Moscow Patriarchate. But when will be here the Ukrainian Church recognized, Lavra – one and other – will be transferred to the Ukrainian Church,” he said.

“The fact that no property of the Moscow Patriarchate in Ukraine. Property of the Church in Ukraine is the property of the Ukrainian Church,” Filaret added.

He noted that the Kiev Pechersk Lavra and the Pochayiv Lavra are the Ukrainian shrines, to which the Moscow Patriarchate has no relation.

“And those congregations that have built their temples at their own expense, then this property of these parishes, not Russia. So Russia is its property the Church does not have”, – said Filaret.

We will remind, earlier the UOC-KP reported that a provincial Bishop Sebastian was getting ready to commit the assassination of the Patriarch Kiev Philaret. Together with his son he allegedly tried to get into the private chambers of Filaret.

It stopped the economy of the Patriarchate nun Varvara, which Bishop Sebastian attacked, sending her in the face with tear gas canister. After that, the father and the son disappeared from the scene.
