The Hierarchical Council of the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church (UAOC) called priests and bishops to abstain from any agitation and participation in the election campaign.

“We decided to prohibit priests and bishops from running in the election, agitating for any parties or individual persons. And we called lay people to vote according to their conscience for there are decent people in all the parties,” the head of UAOC, Metropolitan Mefodii (Kudriakov), said to a correspondent of Komersant.                 

Similar decisions were earlier made by other Ukrainian churches, namely, the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Moscow Patriarchate, Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Kyivan Patriarchate and the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church.

On September 11 in Kyiv, a regular session of the Hierarchical Council of the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church (UAOC) began.

    Предстоятель Константинопольської Церкви у відповідь дуже делікатно нагадав про свій візит в Україну в липні 2008 р. Адже саме тоді були сподівання на визнання УПЦ КП Вселенським патріархатом, проти

    якщо би патр. Кирил зі своїм русскій міром на догоду Путіну не закликав до війни на захист незрозумілої "святої Русі", то би в Україні не гинули тисячі людей з обох сторін фронту. Ось вам і
