In an interview to Khreshchatyk newspaper about the possible construction on the ancient foundation, Mr.Tselovalnyk said, “One does not have to be a builder to understand that nothing will remain of the ancient foundation… By the way, His Beatitude Metropolitan Volodymyr of Kyiv and All Ukraine, with whom I had an honor to have an audience, gave his blessing not to build a church in this place.”

Let us remind the readers that the director of the Institute of Archeology of the Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Peter Tolochko, has recently voiced the opinion of Patriarch Kirill on the construction of the new Tithe Church, “I spoke to Patriarch Kirill and asked him about his opinion on this renewal. The patriarch answered, 'If we do not know exactly what it looked like, it is not advisable to renew it because it will be a pulp and not a monument.'”

At the same time, the leadership of the Tithe Monastery of UOC-MP continues to lobby the renewal of the Tithe Church in the state bodies. In particular, the president’s representative in the Parliament, Yurii Miroshnychenko, initiated such a bill.

      РІСУ повинна знати, що місто має назву САРНИ, але всі прикметники, що утворюються від назви міста, звучать і пишуться так - Сарненський, Сарненська і т.д. Тому єпархія - САРНЕНСЬКА, а не Сарнинська,

      Православный христианин Байден, гражданин Украины, обсудил с Варфоломеем, гражданином Турции, Православие на Украине в лице "патриарха" Денисенко!

      Байден, напевно, пообіцяв багато чого патріархові за визнання автокефалії Київській патріархії(узгодивши з турецькою владою)

      If the Russian church is to be destroyed, it will not be from without, but within. It is not the Soviet Union nor Putin that will destroy it, but the bishops and the people therein. Those who are
