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.

    Пасхальные Послания глав УПЦ КП и УГКЦ, как и другие их обращения, напоминают политические призывы к гражданской войне на Украине на религиозной и межнациональной почве.

    The Russian Orthodox Church leaders' silence has been deafening. It is obvious that Putin controls the Church and the Patriarch is a puppet of Putin.

    Вічная пам'ять рабу божому о.Олександру. Вічне спочивання дай йому та світло віковічне хай світить йому. Дуже жаль. Особисто не знайомий з отцем, але дуже часто його бачив протягом 2х місяців в Києві
