It was reported to Ukrinform by head of the Ukrainian Congress of Estonia, the deputy president of the World Congress of Ukrainians to Europe Vira Konyk.

 

“A lot of new obviously new people were present at this year’s celebration. It was found that most of them still visited the Estonian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate. Due to the fact that the Moscow Patriarchate supports Russian aggression against Ukraine, people stopped going there and found their way to a Ukrainian Church, the UGCC,” said Vira Konyk.

 

In addition, she said that this year the faithful not only from capital, but from all over the country gathered for the Easter Liturgy.

 

"Not only Ukrainians, but Estonians and people of other nationalities came,” she added.

Also the head of Ukrainian Congress of Estonia said that activists of "Stozhary" cultural and educational society organized traditional Easter “hayivky” in the church yard.

      Александрийская церковь будет самой последней, кто признает "пцу", если такое признание когда-нибудь произойдёт. Скорее "пцу" признает Московский патриархат, чем Александрийский!

      Мишка, а русская церковь была официально признана уже "Стамбульским" патриархом Иеремией II аж в 1589 году, а потом её ещё более ста лет не признавали другие поместные церкви! Или вашу РПЦ
