The Phanar outraged the sacred institution of autocephaly, – the hierarch of the Church of Cyprus

Metropolitan Nikiforos of Kykkos (Church of Cyprus) at a conference in Moscow:

  • The abuse of the sacred institution of autocephaly, which took place in the case of Ukraine, not only did not lead to the longed-for ecclesiastical reconciliation and unity, but, on the contrary, further increased the division in the life of the Ukrainian people…
  • The decision of the Moscow Patriarchate to cut off communion with three Churches at once – or at least with those of the bishops who agreed to concelebrate with the clerics of the schismatic communities – was correct and justified.
  • The Moscow Patriarchate broke off communication with the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople due to a violation of the sacred canons, the unilateral invasion of the Ecumenical Patriarch into the affairs of the Ukrainian Church, which is not its canonical territory.
