The country wants independence from Serbia.
Serbian Orthodox Church undermines the independence of Montenegro and Montenegrin authorities, therefore, will be to achieve the restoration of the Autocephalous Montenegrin Orthodox Church.
About it in interview to TV program “Living truth”, said the President of Montenegro Milo Djukanovic, reports RTCG.
“Serbian Orthodox Church very aggressively undermine Montenegrin independence. I believe that it is necessary to continue work on the restoration of the Autocephalous Montenegrin Orthodox Church, and the state will do and bear for it responsibility”, – said Djukanovic.
Serbian Orthodox Church (SPC) is dominant in Montenegro, while Montenegrin Orthodox Church does not have canonical recognition.
The Montenegrin Orthodox Church, which declared itself Autocephalous in 1993, like the Ukrainian Church is fighting for international recognition. Now her efforts are unsuccessful, particularly because of the pressure of SPTS.
Ukrainian Patriarch Filaret has repeatedly come forward to support the aspirations of Montenegrins to have its own Autocephalous Church.
