“We started discussing this issue. First you need to start a certain mechanism. If we don’t talk about it, if we don’t do anything, then we will not achieve any result regarding the condemnation of those terrible actions that led to this brutal war in Ukraine, which daily takes the lives of civilians, children, not to mention our military. Therefore, the process has been launched, and then we will ask to consider this issue very seriously,” said the Primate of the OCU.

He recalled that the OCU called on the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and the primates of the local autocephalous churches to condemn the spiritual crimes of the head of the Russian Orthodox Church Kirill and deprive him of the throne, in particular on the basis of the spread of heretical ethnophyletic teachings about the “Russian world” and the spread of schism among the Orthodox (an unreasonable break Eucharistic unity and the creation of dioceses of the Russian Orthodox Church within the boundaries of the Alexandrian Patriarchate). According to the metropolitan, there are a number of options for resolving this issue, including through a meeting of a number of churches that have the right to make canonical decisions.

Metropolitan of Kyiv and All Ukraine Epiphany added that this idea has support among those churches that once recognized the autocephaly of the Ukrainian church. “They are in solidarity with us in condemning the actions of the Russian Federation, as well as Patriarch Kirill,” he said.

“We see that in this war there are attempts to destroy us as a separate people in front of the whole world. We are witnessing practically the genocide of the Ukrainian people. Everything we see is really called to it. Therefore, we appeal and ask the Ecumenical Patriarch, the primates of other Orthodox churches to study this issue, as well as to make an appropriate decision of condemnation, which may lead in the future to the fact that Patriarch Kirill will lose the throne of Moscow, ”Epifaniy emphasized.

As Ukrinform reported, in early May, during a patriarchal sermon at the Archangel Cathedral in the Moscow Kremlin, Patriarch Kirill of the Russian Orthodox Church said that “Russia has never attacked anyone.”
