The abolition of the act 1686 abolished the administration of the Moscow Church of the Kiev Metropolitan and all dioceses in Ukraine.
The representative of the Patriarchate of Constantinople, Archbishop Iov said in an interview that from October 11, 2018, the hierarchs of all Ukrainian churches in the eyes of vanara have the same status – hierarchs of the Ecumenical throne.
In the words of job, one of the points of historic decisions of the Ecumenical prasetya was the abolition of Synodal act of transfer of the Kyiv Metropolitanate, i.e., the territory of Ukraine – in the Russian Church.
“The abolition of the act 1686 abolished the administration of the Moscow Church of the Kiev Metropolitan and all dioceses in Ukraine,… From the canonical point of view, this means that today in Ukraine, the UOC-MP does not exist anymore. All the bishops now in Ukraine, de facto according to the decision of the Synod are bishops of the Ecumenical throne, and they now have to wait for the Directive of the Ecumenical Patriarchate concerning its continued operation and existence in the future the granting of autocephaly of the Orthodox Church in Ukraine”, – said Archbishop job.
Archbishop job said that solving the Ukrainian issue, the Ecumenical Patriarchate “gets nothing”.
“If the Ecumenical Patriarchate wanted to, he could just revive his Metropolitanate, which existed in Kiev before the end of the XVII century. But Constantinople does not want it. Constantinople wants to give Ukraine autocephaly to Ukraine had its own Church,” he said.
