Not a schism: the Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church announced the full support of the UOC

On May 29, in Moscow, under the chairmanship of His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia, a meeting of the Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church dedicated to the decisions of the Council of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (magazine No. 56) was held, writes the communication service of the DECR ROC.

The Synod decided “to express all-round support and understanding to the archpastors, pastors, monastics and laity of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, which is subjected to unprecedented pressure from representatives of schismatic structures, local authorities, the media, extremist organizations and the nationalist part of the public. <…>

To state that the status of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church is determined by the Diploma of His Holiness Patriarch Alexy II of Moscow and All Russia dated October 27, 1990.

To note that the additions and amendments to the Statute on the Administration of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church adopted by the Council of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church need to be studied in the prescribed manner for their compliance with the aforementioned Charter and the Statute of the Russian Orthodox Church, according to which such additions and amendments must be submitted for approval to the Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia. <…>

To express regret over the fact that in a number of dioceses of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church the commemoration of the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia is being discontinued, which has already led to divisions within the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and which contradicts Canon 15 of the Double Council.”
