Георгій_Коваленко.jpgThe Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Moscow Patriarchate will approach the state with a request to give permission to Metropolitan Volodymyr to serve a liturgy in the St. Sophia of Kyiv Cathedral.

"It is not a question of principle to which ministry the National Museum Reserve Sophia of Kyiv will be subordinated," noted the press secretary of the UOC-MP, Protopriest Heorhii Kovalenko.

In an exclusive interview to, he reported that UOC-MP representatives consider logical the decision of the Public Humanitarian Council to re-subordinate the National Reserve Sophia of Kyiv from under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Regional Development, Construction and Housing to the Ministry of Culture.

Fr. Heorhii stressed that "it will not be a matter of principle" for the UOC.

"It is important for us that services are celebrated in the Sophia of Kyiv taking into consideration all the museum prescriptions and norms at least several times a year," said the protopriest.

According to him, for the UOC-MP, Sophia of Kyiv is not only a museum but also an ancient cathedral of Kyivan metropolitans. "Therefore, we will continue as in the past to address the state with a request to allow the Blessed Metropolitan Volodymyr of Kyiv and All Ukraine to serve a Divine Liturgy in the Sophia of Kyiv at least once a year," added the press secretary.

      Котра вона буде за чергою - це вже не так важливо! Важливіше те, що проти Константинополя ця церква теж не піде, бо та "велика" росія для Антіохії що є, що нема.)))
