The Ukrainian Orthodox Church urges to gather all patriarchs


It was declared by the official representative of Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow patriarchy archpriest Nikolay Danilevich. On Cathedral it is offered to discuss what so isn't pleasant to ROC: possible granting autocephaly, that is independence to so-called Kiev patriarchy the Religious procession of Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Kiev. Photo: SERGEY DOLZHENKO\EPA\TASS the Kiev patriarchy has appeared in 1992. His supporters have proclaimed illegal transfer in 1686 to the Kiev metropolitanate which was before in jurisdiction of Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople under jurisdiction of the Moscow patriarch. Parishioners of the Kiev patriarchy are about 40% of the Ukrainian Orthodox Christians, approximately as much — parishioners of the Moscow patriarchy. 25 years the Kiev patriarchy tries to obtain recognition from local churches and Universal patriarchy in Istanbul (Constantinople). Until recently it was impossible. Moscow with good reason called the Kiev patriarchy "dissenters". Now the situation has exchanged. The universal patriarchy has begun preparation for representation to the Kiev patriarchy of autocephaly, that is his initial recognition. From here and attempt to call on cathedral of all patriarchs. The protodeacon Andrey Kurayev reminds that the similar precedent already was: in 1948 Stalin planned to bring together the VIII Ecumenical council in Moscow on which it was planned to announce Moscow "the Third Rome" — the center of world Orthodoxy. Representatives of Universal patriarchy then have arrived, have prayed, have had dinner and have left. The cathedral hasn't turned out. Therefore the attempt of the Moscow patriarchy to call cathedral from all patriarchs is obviously doomed to a failure, Andrey Kurayev considers: Andrey Kurayev is a protodeacon "Constantinople considers that the right to bring together Cathedral of all patriarchs belongs only to them. Here it is quite obvious: Constantinople won't take part in council which will be convoked by Kiev or Moscow, the Greek churches won't go too, Bulgarians too, for certain, won't go, Romanians, by itself, will be on side of Constantinople too, Georgians — I don't know, there it is harder and harder because there is a problem of Abkhazia. That is the Cathedral even if will take place, then will represent only a part of the orthodox world, and any value for the Constantinople patriarchy he won't have". More than 11 thousand arrivals of the Moscow patriarchy act on Ukraine now — it is almost four times more, than at patriarchy Kiev. Parishioners presumably equally, there are natural assumptions that there will be attempts to transfer church buildings of new autocephaly. In the Moscow Danilovy monastery already speak about potential bloodshed. It isn't necessary to exaggerate, the director of the Kiev Institute of global strategy Vadim Karasyov has said. If such tendency also is shown, then is much later. Vadim Karasyov is the Ukrainian political scientist, the director of "Institute of global strategy" "So far on it all also will end. The president will report on the historical victory with prospect of an election campaign, but nobody will force transitions of arrivals, all understand
