President Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with the heads of three Ukrainian denominations. They discussed the topics of Easter, vaccination and truce in Donbass. The UOC has consistently advocated for peace in eastern Ukraine and is taking practical steps to establish it. In particular, the UOC successfully acted as a mediator in negotiations on the exchange of prisoners, regularly provided assistance to internally displaced persons and those people who live in the front-line zone, carried out various peacekeeping activities, writes Pravblog.
“But with regard to the OCU, it is difficult to imagine how its leadership will call for a truce after Filaret’s statements in the spirit of “Donbass residents must atone for the sin of federalism with blood”or “the Russian population of Donbass is the root of evil”.
Epiphany Dumenko, the head of the OCU, also left not far from his spiritual teacher, who recently sarcastically about the appeals of His Beatitude Metropolitan Onuphry for mutual forgiveness.
As for the UGCC, its leader, Svyatoslav Shevchuk, was also noted for irreconcilable statements that ran counter to the position of the Pope,” writes the Telegram channel.
