Head of Delegation of Ecumenical Patriarchate Did Not Concelebrate at Enthronement of Primate of Ukrainian Orthodox Church

According to the author of Religion in Ukraine Mykola Lakhno, yesterday, August 17, before the Divine Liturgy in the Kyiv Pechersk Lavra and the enthronement of Metropolitan of Kyiv Onufry, the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, there was a scandal: Metropolitan Emmanuel Adamakis, head of delegation of the Ecumenical Patriarchate had no place to concelebrate. As a result, he took of his vestments and did not concelebrate.
Mykola Lakhno explains that in accordance with the common Orthodox diptychs, the pre-eminent place among the hierarchy of the Orthodox Churches belongs to the See of Constantinople, which involves leadership in concelebration with hierarchs of other local churches. But Metropolitan Emmanuel was put after the bishop of the Moscow Patriarchate, Metropolitan Hilarion (Alfeyev) and Metropolitan of UOC Agafangel (Savin), what made it impossible for representative of the Ecumenical Patriarchate to concelebrate.
RISU has not found a second source to confirm this information but the fact is that Metropolitan Emmanuel did not concelebrate and was without vestments during the enthronement. After the ceremony he greetied the new head of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.
Other commentators suppose that the metropolitan did not concelebrate for a different reason - ecumenical hierarchs do not concelebrate with representatives of the Orthodox Church of America .
