In the Russian capital hosts a meeting of the Council of bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church.
“The control center of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Kiev…. The Charter recorded what was on practie”, – stated in the message.
We will note, Moscow hosts the session of the hierarchical Council of the ROC. During the meeting, Metropolitan of Kiev and all Ukraine Onufry asked to underline the special status of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate of the ROC Statute.
In the Charter of the Russian Orthodox Church the status of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church was previously spelled out in paragraph 18 of Chapter XI, entitled “a self-governing Church”.
As noted by Metropolitan Onufry, the item “does not fully displays the Definition of the Council of bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church in 1990 on granting the Ukrainian Orthodox Church independence and autonomy in its management”. The Metropolitan of Kiev in this regard, in particular, proposed the creation of a separate Chapter of the Statute of the ROC under the name “Ukrainian Orthodox Church”.
