On November 15, at around 7:20 in the morning, unknown persons threw Molotov cocktails at the door of the foundation floor of St. Andrew Church. The fire did not develop, damage was not done. An Orthodox priest of the Kyiv Patriarchate, the commandant of the building, was attacked with a gas cartridge.

The spokesman of the UOC KP Archbishop, Yevstratiy (Zoria), wrote about this on Facebook.

“We see that Moscow’s apostates are trying to intimidate with such transparent hints the representatives of the Ecumenical Patriarch, to whom St. Andrew's Church was allocated as a representative office. However, as His All-Holiness Bartholomew wisely said into the eyes of the Muscovites: "The Ecumenical Patriarchate neither threatens anyone nor is it intimidated by threats,” the hierarch noted.

According to a website Kyiv Operatyvny, there were two attackers. After the botched attack, the young men fled towards the Landscape Alley.

On November 7, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko signed Bill # 9208 on the transfer of St Andrew Church to Constantinople.

In October, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine supported in the first reading as a basis and in general the Bill # 9208 on the transfer of St. Andrew's Church to Constantinople. The law was adopted on the second vote by 237 MPs (initially 216).

      А, може, в Маріуполі є? Як відомо, це місто було засновано і заселено, переважно, етнічними греками, яких царський уряд виселив з Криму...
