The right of the Orthodox of Ukraine to have an autocephalous Church and this desire that you have for many years is carried out these days. You were entitled to this, like other peoples who received autocephaly from our Church. It is the exclusive right of the Ecumenical Patriarchate to grant autocephaly and now it came to maturity. We are convinced that the decision on autocephaly will result in the unity of the Orthodox in Ukraine.

The Mother Church considers it expedient to grant Ukraine the right to autocephaly. This new Church will enter the family of the Orthodox Churches of the world,” the Ecumenical Patriarch said in his speech.

Bartholomew I thanked Petro Poroshenko for the visit and for the “beautiful St. Andrew Church that will host a permanent residence of the Mother Church in Ukraine.”

“I am praying to visit Ukraine the soonest and bestow blessings on the pious Ukrainian people,” said Patriarch Bartholomew after signing the Cooperation Agreement between Ukraine and the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Istanbul.Decision on granting autocephaly to unite all

      Так, і це - принаймні, великою мірою - правда. Разом з тим в тій Московії-Росії - все-таки - є і залишається якась певна кількість правдивих християн, що не зрадили і не полишили євангельської
