УПЦ_в_США.jpg18 February metropolitan Antony Shcherba with bishop Daniel Zelenskyj of the Ukrainian Orthhodox Church in the USAhad a meeting with His All-Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew to discuss the conversations that took place in Geneva and to learn the truth about the Pre-Conciliar meeting of the Primates of the Orthodox Churches.

"Following the recent Pre-Conciliar meeting of the Primates of the Orthodox Churches, which took place in Geneva a few weeks ago, much information began to appear on the Internet about discussions and decisions that took place during the gathering. The source of this information was the press office of the Patriarchate of Moscow. Much of the information was extremely critical in reference to the hierarchs of the Ukrainian Orthodox Churches in the USA and Canada. Most of that criticism was completely false as was the quoted response of Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew to the criticism, which had been stated during the Geneva meeting. We were not surprised to hear a completely different interpretation of the Geneva discussions, along with His All-Holiness' unchanging commitment to and concern about his spiritual children in Ukraine, since the Patriarchate of Constantinople remains as the Mother Church of Ukraine.  We will be soon be preparing our own response to the false statements", reads the statement issued by the press service of the Ukrainian Orthhodox Church in the USA.

      Який "пастирський візит"?! Леонардо Кардинал Сандрі ніякий 'пастир' для УГКЦ, навіть брати до уваги що він префект Конгрегації проти - пробачте, 'для' Східних Церков.
