Epiphanius says that in the Kiev region “there is no local assistance” to the transitions from the UOC to the OCU by the authorities, so there are no transitions. He stated this in an interview with Detector UA.
“There has been a change of power, and very often there is no assistance on the ground, they do not even register the statutes. Let’s take the Kiev region. Since the arrival of the new government, not a single statute has been re-registered. For almost two years now, the statutes have been for re-registration of those parishes that have moved, but there are no re-registrations. They do not explain anything, they find legal clues to refuse, “Epiphanius noted.
