Photo: David Mdzinarishvili/Reuters the Constantinople patriarch Varfolomey has said that he will soon provide autocephaly to Ukraine. Varfolomey has made this statement after Sunday service, addressing the consul general of Ukraine in Istanbul Alexander Gaman. The universal patriarch has noted that else in 1998 independence of orthodox churches of the Czech Republic and Slovakia has been declared, and now "the turn of Ukraine because this her right has come". "We aren't frightened by threats" — the Patriarch has added. Earlier official representative of ROC metropolitan Illarion has said that if autocephaly of the Ukrainian church is recognized, Moscow will remain nothing except how to break off communication with Constantinople. What will follow statements of the patriarch Varfolomey? Alexander Dvorkin the candidate of divinity "First, I is still not sure that independence for the Ukrainian church is inevitable. The patriarch Varfolomey has told, but, in my opinion, terms haven't been called. That is he has told that he starts process. Process can last still long enough. I, frankly speaking, don't even know how the patriarch Varfolomey will cope with a number of technical difficulties which actually have already arisen and will arise subsequently. Plans of the Ukrainian leaders which try to obtain it, such to receive to itself "manual" church which would serve as a prop and a support to the mode and which they could operate. The same, respectively, who will refuse to enter this their "manual" church, well, they will become citizens of the second grade. Whether they will begin with repartition of property, with the fact that will begin to select temples, rooms, to impose surtaxes and other-other? What plans at them, I don't know. But plans, it is obvious, anyway, to destroy any communication with ROC". On Saturday it became known that the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine has already begun to make levy of execution of Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow patriarchy which doesn't submit to the Ukrainian Patriarch. Local priests have interpreted the events as preparation of capture of property of church. Earlier within preparation for autocephaly, Constantinople appointed the representatives in Kiev. This decision was sharply condemned in Ukrainian Orthodox Church, having called it invasion on the initial territory of other local church. To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
