Metropolitan Epifaniy of Kyiv and All Ukraine has stated that the first foreign parishes of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine will soon become subordinate to the Constantinople Patriarchate.

In an interview with Ukrayinska Pravda, he has noted that the transition process could not be rapid, but it had already begun, HB reports.

“There are many parishes in Europe that have expressed willingness to become subordinate to the Ecumenical Patriarchate. I even had discussions a few days ago with certain community representatives who say, “We have good relations, we are already changing jurisdiction.” Now, I am preparing leave certificates for those priests, who have submitted requests,” said the Metropolitan.

At the same time, he says there are some communities that do not want to move.

“But we will have a dialogue with them. On the part of Patriarch Bartholomew there is no aggressive attitude that you have to transfer us these parishes today,” added Epifaniy.

He reported that in Europe, the OCU has approximately 46 parishes, 15 in America. And in other regions of the world, there are several parishes.

      михаил, ты за упц (обновленцев) или за воинствующих безбожников (1920...30гг)?

      Верх лицемерия! Сидеть и глумиться в президиуме "собора" древней Софии, давить даже на самого Денисенко, чтобы состряпать какую-то никем не признанную псевдоцерковь "пцу",

      Браво, шановний КИЄВЛЯНИНЕ!!! Та ВАШУ, воістинно, мудру думку мали б, найперше, озвучити Глави та Ієрархи УГКЦ і УПЦ... Дуже шкода що вони до цього ще не додумалися. А чому? Може ще не доросли,

      Дозволю собі висловити тут таку думку. Панові Святославу, та всім хто підтримує висловлену у цьому інтерв'ю позицію варто пам'ятати і усвідомлювати, що сьогодні немає перешкод для греко-католикам
