Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchate informed about the transition of about 10 parishes of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Moscow Patriarchate under their jurisdiction in 2014.
The head of the information department of the UOC (KP), the Secretary of the Synod, Archbishop Yevstratiy (Zorya) said this at the press conference
"We still do not have the exact statistics, but in 2014 about 10 parishes of the Moscow Patriarchate moved to us," - he said. This parishes are in Kherson, Rivne, and Chernihiv regions.
Experts note that these facts should be a wake up call for UOC MP.
"Already there are cases where four parishes in Kherson, Rivne, Zhytomyr and Ternopil with churches and communities have passed to the UOC-KP. This is not a mass movement, but a symptom of what will happen with the UOC (MP) if policy of the metropolitan Onufry be pro-Russian. This symptom is verified with facts and therefore Metropolitan Onufry have to be ready to compromise for the sake of the Church. If his policy be pro-Russian, these symptoms will intensify ", - said Andriy Yurash.
