He proved the decision by the fact that the territory of Ukraine is restored as a metropolitanate of the Constantinople patriarchy. According to him, from the legal point of view all priests of Ukrainian Orthodox Church became clergymen of the Constantinople church. This metropolitan did not agree with an official position of Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow patriarchy earlier. But it is unknown whether other priests will follow his opinion, the director of the Ukrainian Institute of global strategy Vadim Karasyov says: Vadim Karasyov is the Ukrainian political scientist, the director of Institute of global strategy "Well, Drabinko was a dissident for a long time, though internal, and it had a special position long ago. Moreover, he was one of participants of that process that the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow patriarchy itself would ask autocephaly, of course, then it removed problems. But we will look how events will develop further. Because now the Ukrainian power will promote that the cathedral All-Ukrainian, orthodox cathedral gathered. But time the Moscow patriarchy remains, moreover and too as the participant of all these events on the party of ROC until it is difficult to call such All-Ukrainian cathedral in the nearest future. Main problem here what: now the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow patriarchy is majority, initial orthodox church. Probably, it will remain anyway as a part of the initial territory of ROC, but whether there will be it minority or after all will keep the influence as majority orthodox church in Ukraine, further process of creation of uniform local national orthodox church of Ukraine will depend on it much,". The president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko will register the bill of transfer to the Constantinople patriarchy to continuous use of Andreevsky church in Kiev in the nearest future. The representative of the head of state explained that the president supports the fastest receiving autocephaly by the country and in solidarity makes this symbolical gesture. This church was constructed in the 18th century at the initiative of the Russian empress Elizabeth Petrovna. The temple in Baroque style built on the project of the architect Rastrelli is located on the Andreevsky mountain in Kiev. The Kremlin very attentively and with big concern watches how the relations between ROC and the Constantinople patriarchy develop, the Russian President's Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov reported. "It causes our concern, we hope that the wisdom will triumph, we hope that all interests of Russian Orthodox Church will be observed" — Peskov told. He did not begin to concretize what observance of interests disturbs the Russian authorities, having readdressed this question of ROC.
