Priest Volodymyr Tkachuk noted that the council of the UOC stands for an agreement to achieve peace in Ukraine.
“The Council appeals to the authorities of Ukraine and the authorities of the Russian Federation with a request to continue the negotiation process and the search for a strong and reasonable word that could stop the bloodshed.”
At the end of March, a bill was introduced to ban the activities of the UOC on the territory of Ukraine. Lawyers of the UOC department noted that the initiative is contrary to the law and violates freedom of religion.
The Council of the UOC adopted a document consisting of ten points. One of them contains the thesis of disagreement with the position of the Moscow Patriarch regarding the special operation in Ukraine.
Earlier, SM-News news agency reported about the UOC metropolitan, which helped civilians to evacuate from Azovstal.
