38582.gif.jpgThe program for the celebration of the 1025th anniversary of the baptism of Rus-Ukraine has been made ​​so that the events in Kyiv will be secondary to those in Moscow, Epiphany (Dumenko), Deputy Patriarch of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Kyivan Patriarchate and Metropolitan of Pereyaslav-Khmelnytsky and Boryspil, said in an interview with Ukrayina Moloda.

The metropolitan said that by imposing its program for the anniversary celebration, Moscow is putting pressure on the Ukrainian church and state.

“Russian focus on the celebration is not being directed toward Kyiv, where the baptism took place, but toward Moscow, which at that time did not exist. The Russian Orthodox Church invites the Primates of the Orthodox Churches to the white-stone [Moscow]. The program is designed so that the celebrations in Kyiv are secondary to those in Moscow,” he said.

“Our main national event we will be the celebrations in the Ukrayina Palace, but neither Patriarch Kirill nor other foreign visitors from the Orthodox world will be present. At that time, they will be at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Patriarch Kirill, kind of like a master to his slaves, will come to us in the evening. He wants to show that he plays a key and leading role. He wants to demonstrate to the world: You see, we are the only ones that are canonically recognized, and all the others are ‘dissenters’ who can not participate in the general celebration,” said the governor.

According to him, Moscow is trying to use this celebration for its own geopolitical interests.

“But it is impossible to distort historical truth. We testify that Volodymyr the Great was the Prince of Kyiv and baptized Rus in Kyiv. Moscow at that time didn’t even exist as a settlement! I hope that all are wise enough not to let Moscow humiliate Ukraine during its own celebration,” said the metropolitan.

    Там де тепер столиця російської республіки була "гнила вода", мордовською - маасква. Не було тоді і Новгарада, сло'вяни тоді ще не окупували угро-фінські землі.

    В Украине Денисенко доверяют 42 процента, а в России Путину 90. Пока так много оболваненных верят этим двум величайшим лжецам, негодяям и преступникам, не будет нормальной жизни в Украине и России!

    Вони хочуть переговорів з УАПЦ, щоб зірвати об’єднання з УПЦ КП. Та ще й кліриики москалів неабяк перелякалися контактам українських єпископів і константинопольських.

    Ты, Миха, как всегда в своём репертуаре - обосрать всё, что связано с Киевским Патриархатом. А вот дышло тебе в твою чекистскую глотку - объединение Украинской Церкви состоится непременно и это будет

    Паканичу ж пояснили ще в лютому -- Україна не є канонічною територією МП. Вселенський Патріарх вже не раз роз'яснював, а єпископи УПЦ-МП все не чують та альтернативно одарованих з себе корчать.

    Слава Ісусу Христу! Нарештi в Украïнi пoчинає вимальoвуватися Єдина Правoславна Украïнська Церква. УПЦ МП вiдiйдiть вiд Мoскви i патрiарха Кирила i йoгo патрiархату. Зрoбiть тoй важливий крoк який ви
