TV presenter Yevgeny Kiselyov has called Patriarch Kirill to accept the independence of the Ukrainian Church. This opinion was expressed by a journalist to Obozrevatel.


“The Orthodox Church, which was under the aegis of the Russian imperial throne until 1917, was divided. It is not just the division between the Kyiv Patriarchate in the jurisdiction of Moscow and the Kyiv Patriarchate, headed by Patriarch Filaret. There is also the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church, and there is the division between Orthodox Churches abroad. The Russian Orthodox Church agreed to restore relations with the Moscow Patriarchate, and some parishes of Russian Orthodox Church abroad were in opposition,” he reminded.


Of course, it is sad, and it is the heritage of 1917. But now another political reality has developed in the world. Different borders were drawn. Therefore, whether we like it or not, there is a worldwide trend: every sovereign state has its own national church. In this sense, Ukraine is the only exception,” said Kiselyov.


He said he considered himself a person distant from religion and “probably agnostic,” but as a political journalist, historian and political analyst he added that the process of unification of the Orthodox Church would be positive for Ukraine. This was reported by gazeta.ua.
