Filaret has set a date for an urgent local council, during which he wants to officially resume the activities of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyiv Patriarchate (UOC-KP).
Ecumenical Patriarchate has decided to proceed to the granting of Autocephaly to the Church of Ukraine.
The head of the Ukrainian Church will be elected at an Unifying Council, which will include 41 bishops of the Kyiv Patriarchate, 12 bishops of the Autocephalous Church, and 10 bishops of the Moscow Patriarchate.
The research also proves Moscow Patriarchate has violated the rules of the Patriarchal and Synodal Act of 1686 of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.
The Ecumenical Patriarch took the decision about offering autocephaly to the Ukrainian Church in April and is now in the process of implementing it.
When the Tomas of Autocephaly is granted, two churches will unite into one: the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyivan Patriarchate and the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church.
