“Metropolitan” of the UOC-KP Ioasaf Belgorodsky expressed indignation that the “patriarch” of the UOC-KP Filaret was not invited to the official events in honor of the Independence Day. “By this act, the officials emphasized their extreme disrespect for your multimillion flock,” wrote the “hierarch”.
“They didn’t humiliate you, this stain falls on those who allowed it. And this sets you even more and more clearly as a truly people’s Patriarch, the spiritual father of Ukraine. The entire multimillion flock, all of us, today and always are with you, ”wrote the “hierarch”.
